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.
