LDS Tour 10. Tulum ruins and Horseback Riding
An Exciting Combination to Explore Sea and Land.
Enjoy a remarkable visit to Tulum Ruins with our expert tour guides followed by a pleasant Horseback ride in the Jungle!
Tulum is the home of the Descending God. The Descending God has been so named by the archaeological community because he is always shown with his feet in the air as if he is descending from the sky. Many people, including anthropologists, archaeologists, and guides have erroneously stated that the Descending God is found only in Tulum. This has been done out of ignorance – or in some cases, a simple desire to skirt the entire issue of the Descending God and what he potentially represents.
The Temple of the Descending God was built in alignment with the morning star, the planet Venus, and the sun so as to mark April 6th as the birthday of the Descending God. On that day, Venus can be seen rising into the night sky directly over the door of the temple, and sunlight forms a brilliant star that can be seen only on that day. This is hugely significant because Mayan Gods were known by the day on which they were born.
About Horseback riding activity:
We begin this activity at the Ranch not too far from Playa del Carmen, right off the high way from Maroma Beach. We ride on private property, on the jungle side in one of the few undeveloped areas left along the Riviera Maya. Riders get individual instructions and a quick lesson in Western riding when they get on their horse.
Safety is the best policy. Helmets are available and recommended, however, are optional for adult riders.
If you always dreamt about riding in a lush jungle or on a beautiful beach, you will love this tour.
