Come to Coba

Come to Coba

February 01, 2014

Although the modern Riviera Maya offers every imaginable amenity and service, the spirit of the ancient Maya is ever-present. A favorite place to delve into the mysteries of this storied culture is nearby Cobá, one of the region's most noteworthy archeological sites. Less crowded than Tulum, Cobá is best explored in the company of an expert Mayaland guide, who'll challenge you to climb to the top of 138-foot Nohoch Mul (the highest temple-pyramid in the state), accompany you to a small Mayan community to experience everyday life, and take you for a refreshing dip in a crystal-clear cenote. The 12-hour excursion is an immersive, awe-inspiring experience, arming you and your fellow guests of Riviera Maya hotels with amazing stories to tell back home – and the snapshots to back them up.
