You'll find every imaginable modern-day amenity and service in Riviera Maya hotels but the spirit of the ancient Maya is always ever-present. One of the best places to explore the the mysteries of the bygone Mayan culture is in nearby Cobá, easily one of the region's most noteworthy archeological sites. Less crowded than Tulum, Cobá is best visited with an experienced Mayaland guide. You'll climb to the top of 138-foot Nohoch Mul (the highest temple-pyramid in the state), visit a small Mayan community to experience everyday life, and take a refreshing dip in a crystal-clear cenote. The full day excursion is an immersive experience, arming you and your fellow guests of Riviera Maya hotels with amazing stories to tell back home – and plenty of snapshots and selfies to back them up.
