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.

Everything was great. The driver and guide were excellent. Tulum was amazing but coba and the cenote swim were unbeatable. This trip is a must.

This tour, like our Chichen Itza one, was absolutely fantastic. We were picked from our hotel and introduced to our tour guide, a very nice and funny man called Uk pronounced 'Ook' He went through the history of the area of Tulum and it's significance in the Mayan culture, and spoke about life as a descendant of the Mayans. After Tulum, we travelled along in and stopped off at the cenote for a swim. The water was lovely and cooling after being in the Mexican heat! It was a nice chance to get chatting to some of the other people on our tour, there were people from the USA, Ireland, France and Italy and it was really nice to speak to all of them.

After our cenote swim we stopped off for lunch close to the Coba site, it was a buffet and the food was absolutely fantastic. The food wasn't the stereotypical Mexican food that you might expect, but more of the traditional food eaten in the Yucatan by the Mayan descendants, which I have to say I preferred.

After lunch we went to the Coba site, which for the initial part was walking through the dense area of trees to get to the site, which was actually very nice as it kept the sun off of our heads. After roughly twenty minutes we arrived at the Coba ruins, again like with Chichen Itza it took me a minute to fully comprehend what I was seeing and where I was, it was a truly breathtaking site to behold. Then the fun part began where we got to climb up it! The Coba ruin is very steep and gets narrower the closer you get to the top, and many people zoomed ahead to then slow down from fatigue about half way through, so my advice is to be like the tortoise and go slow and steady all the way to the top.

Now what can I say about when you reach the top? The feeling is amazing, you feel like a Mayan leader addressing their subjects down on the ground beneath them, and looking round and all you can see is the dense trees of the Yucatan stretching across the horizon underneath clear blue skies. It is well worth the effort to get to the top! I'd also say as well that the site is very busy, but if you're quick you can get a couple of photos without someone standing in front of you, I even nearly managed to get a clear panorama from the top.

If you're going to the Yucatan area, I would 100 recommend that you visit this area. Even if history and ruins aren't really your thing, the views from the top are truly breathtaking and definitely something to remember.

A realy great trip. I had the Cichen Itza trip day tour also with cenote swimming the week before. But the marvelous location of Tulum beach side and those of Coba in the jungle was a bit better, though different from cichen Iza. The cenote was more a kind of Family operated pool, which was fine, because it was not crowded by too many tourists. Some complained about the simple Food, but it was fine for me.
A really good recommendation for a day trip from Cancun

Everything was very good. Both of the service and tour were good. I had a self-driving tour at the first day. The second I had this tour. Compared them. I'm sure I'll go with viator next time instead of self-driving tour.
