Depart from your hotel in Cancun or Riviera Maya in a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan and admire the rural scenery of the Yucatan as you venture to the ancient site of the Coba ruins. Listen as your accomplished guide sets the historical scene and explains how Coba played a pivotal role in Mayan civilization.
Arrive at the site and enjoy 2 hours of independent exploration; ascend to the summit of the tallest pyramid in the Yucatan region and enjoy panoramic vistas from a height of 140 feet (42 meters). After conquering the Nohoch Mul Pyramid, follow your guide to some of the park's historical highlights, perhaps renting a bike in order to explore the site with ease (own expense).
After thorough exploration, return to the coach and venture to a traditional Mayan village to interact with its indigenous inhabitants. Gain insight into the fascinating flora and fauna of the region and learn about the cultural customs of the Yucatan region. Conclude the tour with a revitalizing dip in a freshwater sinkhole before returning to your hotel in Cancun or Riviera Maya.
