  • Address: Coba, Mexico
  • Admission: $6
The Coba Ruins, built long ago—sometime between the years 500 and 900—lie deep in the heart of the Yucatan jungle. Visitors can rent bikes or hire rickshaws to travel among the knobby paths and thick forest that link the groupings of ancient pyramids and historic sites to one another. 

A climb to the top of the Nohuch Mul pyramid, the tallest in the Yucatan, affords visitors a spectacular (if nerve-wracking) view of the jungle, as well as the astronomical observatory and game courts that surround it. From this vantage point, travelers can also check out the Mayan’s version of an interstate highway: elevated roads called sacbeob, that lead from the ruins to other Mayan cities. 

Practical Info

Visitors can travel from Cancun to Coba by driving south on highway 307. Several public buses also make the 3-hour journey each day. Coba is located about 45 minutes from Talum and admission to the ruins is 57 pesos per person—about US$6.
