Overview

Begin your tour with early morning hotel pickup in Cancun for the 2-hour drive to Coba. Your early wake-up call will be worth it when you arrive as one of the first visitors of the day to explore the impressive ruins of this ancient Mayan city.

Follow your certified archaeologist guide into the site and receive an in-depth tour of Coba’s history and architecture. Considered one of the largest pre-Columbian settlements of the Classic period, Coba boasts nearly 6,500 structures contained inside the archaeological zone, which covers approximately 43 square miles (70 square km). About 50,0000 people once lived in the city.

Hear about the city’s construction around five lakes within the dense jungle, leading to its name, which in Mayan means ‘place of choppy water,’ or ‘water stirred by wind’ in Spanish. As you walk through the ruins, learn more about the network of roads that you see, as well as the stelae, or stone monuments, and the hieroglyphic texts.

Climb to the top of the tallest Mayan pyramid in the Yucatan Peninsula, the Nohoch Mul Pyramid, which towers 140 feet (42 meters) above the rainforest floor and offers breathtaking views.  It’s also noticeable that you can get to the pyramid either walking or on a bycicle.

To fight the heat, refresh at the pristine waters of the sinkhole (cenote) Choo Há. This cenote is perfect for diving enthusiasts, you’ll be able to do snorkeling in its circular interior.

Its 10 meters depth and its natural illumination makes it a spectacular water view.
