Nohoch Mul Tours

2 Reviews
Scale the ancient stone steps of the Yucatan’s tallest Mayan pyramid, Nohoch Mul, which overlooks the ruins of the Coba archeological site. Coba was once a grand town, comparable in size to the more popular Chichen Itza, and at 137 feet tall, Nohoch Mul stands some 40 feet taller than Chichen Itza’s El Castillo pyramid. At the top, you’ll find a small temple with sculptures of a descending god. Only a small fraction of Coba has been excavated, even the backside of Nohoch Mul remains enshrouded by jungle, and from the top of the pyramid, you can see jungle-covered hills in the distance that are in fact yet-to-be-uncovered structures.

Practical Info

Coba sits inland, about 40 minutes drive from the coastal town of Tulum. The site has bathrooms at the entrance, but is otherwise far less developed than spots like Cichen Itza. At the entrance, you can hire walking guides and pedi-cab tours, or simply rent a bicycle to tour on your own.

4 Days of Minitour in Yucatán

Ek 'Balam is located in the central-eastern part of Yucatan, about 190 km from Mérida and it is easy to reach the area, since the access is clearly signposted. The name of the ancient city, in the Yucatec Mayan language, literally translates into Spanish as "dark or black jaguar" (Barrera V. 1980: 1950) although the people of the Ek'Balam region who speak Mayan also interpret it as " Lucero-Jaguar. " When the Spanish arrived in the Yucatan Peninsula in 1517, Chichén Itzá was already abandoned, which means that while Europe lived in the Middle Ages, Chichen Itza had already created an even more precise calendar than the Gregorian one, its knowledge of Astronomy was much more advanced and they handled the concept of the number zero. Chichén Itzá differed from other Mayan cities by introducing the cult to the god Kukulcán, the feathered serpent.
