Description

Visit Coba’s great pyramid

Departing from your resort on a comfortable private transfer, you’ll arrive to the awe-inspiring archaeological site of Coba. Your personal guide will lead your private group across this ancient place, one of the most beautiful and renowned Mayan cities. Coba features one of the tallest pyramids in the Mayan world — the 137-foot Nohoch Mul, the tallest in the Yucatan Peninsula - yes higher than the famous pyramid at Chichen Itza!

Your guide will also escort you through the site’s other structures, such as the Temple of Paintings, the Ball Court, Structure X, and even ancient relics such as stelae — slabs of stone illustrating important events of the Coba kingdom. Get your camera ready, the views are worth as many pictures as you can take!


Refresh and relax in a cenote

When you’re done exploring the wonders of Coba, return to your private vehicle and replenish with snacks on the way to the most refreshing part of your outing. You’ll arrive to a beautiful cenote (a freshwater sinkhole) under the green landscape of Coba.

Enjoy a unique and relaxing time in these legendary swimming spots, whose crystal-clear waters were considered a passageway to the Mayan underworld. Jump, splash and float until it’s time to hop back on your transfer for the final portion of your private outing.


Experience life at a Mayan village

After stopping at a restaurant for lunch (not included) and tasting local flavors, your guide will take you to an authentic Mayan village in the middle of the jungle. There, you can experience how the descendants of the Mayans live today.

Watch a shaman perform a sacred ritual and witness how the Mayan ancestors communicated with their deities. You can also sample homemade tortillas and take in more views of the jungle at this village. When your amazing day of cultural discovery and natural beauty comes to an end, you’ll return to your vehicle for a comfortable private ride back to your resort.
