Journey into the heart of Maya culture with a day trip from Playa del Carmen to Coba. Tucked within the jungle, this ancient Maya city is home to the Yucatan's tallest pyramid. Scale Nohoch Mul for exquisite 360 degree views, then tour the rest of the ruins solo or with a guide (you can even rent a bicycle to explore). Savor a traditional lunch and interact with locals at a modern Maya village. Later, finish up the day with a relaxing dip in a water-filled cenote, or sinkhole.
