This small-group, 5-hour tour starts at 7:15am with pickup from your hotel in Tulum or Riviera Maya.

Head inland to Cobá, set deep in the jungle. This ancient Mayan city, the most recent to be discovered, is unique among other ruins in the Yucatan. Settled much earlier than either Chichen Itzá or Tulum—construction reached its peak between 800 and 1100 AD—it once housed population of 40,000. It was also the center of the Mayan roadway system, consisting of raised stone causeways known as sacbeobs.

Your guide will lead you through the site, pointing out how Cobá's towering pyramids and sculpted stone slabs resemble the architecture of Tikal in Guatemala more so than other nearby Yucatan sites. And since the area is not completely excavated, you'll see mounds still entire covered with vegetation. Follow the paths to arrive at the Nohoch Mul pyramid, the Yucatan's tallest at 138 feet (42 meters). From the top, enjoy a wonderful view of the sub-tropical jungle that surrounds the site. 

Optional bike rentals allow you to see even more of the site. With this tour's early departure, you'll avoid the heat and crowds and be back at your hotel by about noon. Hotel pickup and drop-off, entrance fees, snack and beverages, and your professional guide are all included.
