Take guided tours of two popular archaeological sites on the Riviera Maya — Tulum and Coba — during this day trip from Cancun. After providing an introduction to local cultural traditions with a visit to a Maya community, your certified guide sheds light on the ancient ruins. See Caribbean views from Tulum and climb Nohoch Muul, the Yucatán’s tallest pyramid, at Coba. Lunch plus round-trip hotel transport are included.
A good tour to see different aspects of Mayan life a trade center Tulum and a religious center Coba. A nice lunch and swimming in the cenote are nice additions to the ruins. Just our tour guide was quite lazy - just a few explanations somewhere in the middle of the site and then go and look yourself - at the same time I saw other tour guides going round with all kind of picture materialexplanations.
Overall, this was a fantastic tour. Both sites are definitely worth checking out, and our guide/drive was engaging, friendly, and informative. The lunch was very good as well.
Some caveats - this tour is actually 2 parts of a 3 part tour. The third and final part is a Cenote swimming pool cave, and you have a choice of either staying longer like an hour at the Coba ruins kind of pointless, or pay the bit extra for the swimming stop like 10 currently. We hadn't signed up for the swimming, and the guide forgot. So when we got there we just had to hang around for an hour with nothing to do and with quite disgusting bathrooms.
Other caveat: If you're coming from the Cancun peninsula like we were, the transfer can take almost 3 hours each way with all the other stops you have to do for the others in the bus! So, our excursion ended up lasting about 14 hours in total and completely occupied the day.
We were picked up late and put on a tour that was slightly different to the one we had booked. The tour company had not advised us of this and there was some confusion at the depot before departure. The bus had to drop off some people to another tour on the way which made our start late and we ended up not having enough time to spend at Coba or Tulum. Time is definitely required because of the large amounts of people at the sites and the distance between the ruins. Coba and Tulum are definitely worth the visit!
