Coba Ruins

As mentioned, the Coba ruins are home to the second tallest Mayan pyramid in the world and although not as popular as Chichen Itza, are thought to be as significant. 

The Coba ruins are special because they have the largest network of stone roadways in the ancient Mayan world! These are called sacbes or white roads, and they run over 100 kilometers (62 miles) westwards to the site of Yaxuna near Chichén Itzá. The ruins of Coba are scattered all around and extend over a large area of land.


You won’t need to worry because you can rent a bike or one of the famous “Mayan limos” (a bike taxi for 1 or 2 people). This service is included in our tours so that you can see everything this amazing site has to offer without having to walk long distances. You’ll enjoy a stunning lush jungle and local wildlife as you travel from one exciting structure to the next. One of our certified archaeological guides will accompany you every step of the way.

Your Adventure

Lagoon and Sanctuary

After you’ve explored the ancient Mayan ruins with your guide, it's time for a delicious lunch and to head to a beautiful lagoon, Punta Laguna. Once you arrive, you’ll get the rare opportunity to experience a traditional Mayan ceremony with a real shaman who will cleanse your energy, help you let go of past anguish and be more centered and present.

After the cleansing, you’ll take a stroll through the jungle and maybe spot a howler or spider monkey swinging from the trees. Then, eventually, arrive at Punta Laguna nature reserve to zip line over the water and then take a canoe journey across this breathtaking lagoon! It will be a very picture-worthy day, for sure!


If you are feeling adventurous after the lagoon, your guide will take you to a local cenote for a refreshing swim. 

A cenote /seh-NO-tay/ is a natural sinkhole resulting from the collapse of limestone that exposes openings to the underground river system that traverses the entire Yucatán. Cenotes were used by the Mayans thousands of years ago as a source of fresh water or a place for offerings and sacrifices to the Mayan gods.

Today, they are a unique and refreshing place to cool off and swim in crystal clear water.
