What You Can Expect

Viator Exclusive: Coba Ruins Early Access Tour with an Archaeologist and Cenote Swim from Cancun

Swim in a cenote on this Viator Exclusive

After early morning pickup at your Cancun hotel, settle in for the 2-hour drive to Coba. 

Arrive at the ruins and be one of the first visitors of the day with your archaeologist guide. Learn in detail about Coba's architecture and history during the quiet period before the crowds arrive. See the ruins' 6,500 structures over a archeological field of nearly 43 square miles (70 square km) which once had 50,000 inhabitants. 

Climb Nohoch Mul, the Yucatán Peninsula's tallest pyramid at a height of 140 feet (42 meters). Appreciate the stunning views of the surrounding rainforest as you stand at the top. Listen to your guide explain the ancient city's layout around five lakes in the dense jungle and its painstaking construction. View the hieroglyphs, the city's stone monuments and the advanced network of roads. 

Travel to Aktun Cenote, a refreshing pool in an underground cavern. Recover from your strenuous pyramid climb and relax in the pool, illuminated by natural light, for about an hour before moving on to lunch. 

Eat at a local restaurant that serves a buffet of typical Mexican food, as well as salad, pasta and dessert. Board your vehicle for transportation back to your Cancun hotel.

Arturo was an excellent tour guide. This tour was really a highlight of our trip. Everything was perfect - from the bikes, to the ruins, to the cenote, and ending with a fabulous lunch. Would definitely book this again.

Florentio was a great guide and really gave us a personal experience and perspective. He and the driver were great and Coba was much nicer than Chicen Itza as there were not vendors every five feet bothering you when all you want to do is look at the scenery.

I went on the 26th and the tour guy was so awesome! Very nice, really informative. We rode bicycles to the Coba Ruins and it was so much fun bicycles were included! Got to climb to the top and saw an amazing view. Afterwards we cooled off at the Cenote. Which was beautiful in its self. Overall, the trip went very well. We all had a great time and I learned a lot! DEFINITELY recommend this tour!!! SO worth the money!!!

The tour and the restaurant for lunch were fine. The bus was 15ish min late for pick-up. I guessed it's because the bus had to pick up all the people from the south of hotel zone to the north. So I think I'm fine with a 15-min lateness.
