Set deep in the Mexican jungle, the atmospheric ruins of Cobá are a must-see during your time in the Yucatan peninsula. In addition to the ancient Mayan site of Cobá, this full-day tour from Cancun takes you to a Mayan village and a cenote to swim. Delve into ancient history on a guided tour of Cobá’s ruins, sample authentic Mayan food, observe a pottery making class, and swim in a beautiful cenote. Lunch and round-trip transport from Cancun are included.
Begin your day with hotel pickup in Cancun, where you’ll board an air-conditioned vehicle destined for the jungle-shrouded ruins of Cobá. During the 2-hour drive, your guide provides history-rich commentary designed to enhance your understanding of Mayan culture.
On arrival at Cobá, you’ll embark on a 3-hour tour of the ruins with your guide. Stroll parallel to ceremonial limestone avenues, ascend vine-clad mounds, and climb Nohoch Mul, the site’s principal pyramid, for spectacular views.
Then, cool off with a refreshing dip in a nearby cenote and proceed to a Maya village to learn about local traditions. Sate your appetite with Mexican fayre, observe a pottery making demonstration, and purchase artisan handicrafts as special souvenirs.
Your tour concludes with drop-off at your Cancun hotel.
