Coba was one of the largest ancient Mayan cities spanning approximately 50 miles. It’s about a half-hour drive from Tulum and offers an abundance of jungle adventure. You can climb the highest Mayan pyramid, Nohuch Mul, 130 feet to enjoy amazingly expansive views. Miles and miles of trails will beckon you to explore by foot, bike or even by a hired Pedi cab driver. You’re sure to see plenty of wildlife along your way, like tropical birds and monkeys, who make their home in the lushest part of the jungle.

"Explore Coba" — 03/15/2018
If in Cancun you must take an excursion and drive south down to Coba which is West of Tulum to explore these ruins. We got there and opted to rent a bicycle to ride backin the jungle a few miles to see the big mighty Coba ruin. You can climb all the way to the top and the views are spectacular. Worth the time it takes to get there but should not be missed!

"We visited Coba on a package for a day trip recommended by the concierge"
I would highly recommend this package. Because my youngest child was only 4, we could not do some of the available day trips, but afterwards my whole family said this was the best part of our vacation. We were picked up and dropped off at the resort and spent the day learning aout Mayan culture and history. We visisted a Mayan village and swam in a cenote, we made our own tortilla from scratch, rode bikes to the temple at Coba and were able to climb to the top. It was amazing.
"Coba Depth of the Jungle" — 02/08/2018
"Coba Depth of the Jungle"
Coba is an amazing ruin in the jungle. Less known and less travelled than Chichen Itza I highly recommend visiting it. My husband and I had the thrill of climbing its major pyramid. At Coba you can be close to the ruins and archeological discoveries. You truly feel you are in the depth of the jungle back in the ancient Mexican past. One word AMAZING!
