What You Can Expect

Cancun Super Saver: Tulum and Coba Ruins Including Cenote Swim and Lunch

Discover ancient Mayan sites in Coba

Tulum Ruins (7 hours)
After morning pickup at your Playa del Carmen or Cancun hotel, ride for approximately 2 hours in a comfortable, climate-controlled minivan to Tulum. 

Perched high on a cliff, this ancient city overlooking the Caribbean Sea is one of the best-preserved Mayan sites. Learn about the Mayan society that thrived there in the 13th-15th centuries during a 45-minute guided tour. Explore the site at your leisure for an hour before departing for your next stop. 

Before heading on to Coba, stop at a cenote, an underground sinkhole created by limestone erosion and filled with pristine water. After a refreshing dip, travel to a local restaurant for lunch. Enjoy Yucatanean specialties, including quesadillas and salad. Sip water, soda or beer with your meal. After lunch, depart Tulum for Coba.

Coba Ruins Tour (4.5 hours)
Travel about 60 minutes to Coba, deep in the rainforest amongst lush vegetation and serene lagoons. Once a Mayan trade center, Coba now boasts many significant ruins. 

Take a 1-hour guided tour, including a climb to the top of the tallest Mayan pyramid in the region, Nohoch Mul. Look out over the tops of the rainforest canopy before descending to explore the other stone buildings, such as the Ball Court. Wander the site on your own for another hour before boarding the bus back to your hotel in Playa del Carmen or Cancun after a long day of discovering Mayan culture and civilization.

This is a small group tour and picked up was on time in vans. Susan was very good guide and easy to understand. It is a long 2.5 hrs drive each way. Tulum was nice. This area is exposed to the sun so ensure you have hats or even umbrellas. The cenote was beautiful. Smaller then others rustic and you didn't have to wear a life vest. we had lunch here which was ok. It was nice sitting under the shade with a breeze. Then to Coba. We all had to hire a tricycle to be taken in groups to each ruin. This costs 3. This is really necessary as it is a long way between ruins. It is very shady with lots of trees. Overall very good.

Tulum and Coba are underrated. No doubt, Chichenitza is magnificent, but the beauty of Tulum and the serenity of Coba are incredible. Coba is also the only ruin you can still climb- so a must do before that ends! Very comfortable bus- we didn't have any motion sickness despit sitting in the back of the bus. Carlos was a very knowledgeable and pleasant guide. Really enjoyed the excursion. Lunch was simple but authentic and tasty. The Cenote was a little disappointing- there are much better cenotes in that same region that we visited in a separate trip.

This tour is really an excellent one and especially climbing Coba ruins was the best part and its amazing. Tour guide Carlos is very knowledgeable and explained all the details and answered all our questions patiently. Everything went on time as planned and overall it was a relaxing tour.

Sophie, our tour guide, was fantastic. Very knowledgeable and cool to hang with! The ruins were amazing to see and learn about. The cenote where we had lunch and went swimming was beautiful. The food was wonderful! We even got to climb to the top of the big pyramid at Coba. There are places to shop and use the restroom at both stops. They even provide free bottles of water! Make sure you bring your swim suit, towel and sun screen if you plan to swim at the cenote. You might want to take some insect repellent, too. It's a long day, but it was so worth it!! We had so much fun!
