Description

Feel the thrills of a Riviera Maya Adventure excursion in the breathtaking natural wonders of the Yucatan Peninsula

The morning of your Coba excursion from Cancun it is normal to wake up feeling excited, we get excited too! After pick-up at your resort by your friendly guide and driver, you’ll head south towards the beach town of Tulum then delve deep into the Yucatan jungle. Most of the Yucatan Peninsula is still hidden beneath the jungle foliage, holding mysteries yet to be explored. Your Coba tour from Cancun brings you to a site that is famous for the Nohoch Mul pyramid and to a charming Mayan village to learn about the culture of the area and enjoy a jungle adventure. Riviera Maya extreme adventures: Rappel, zipline and swim in a cenote cave

The Riviera Maya adventure excursion includes adrenaline-fueled fun in the Mayan village. Rappel into an extraordinary cenote by descending 55 feet into a cave to land in the water and swim in the mystical waters. Soar over the pristine jungle canopy on two breathtaking ziplines, swim in a hidden cave, set out on a gentle canoe trip on a freshwater lagoon, and walk through the jungle to learn about local flora and fauna. Your heart will be racing and your senses will delight in the natural beauty of the jungle.

In this Mayan village excursion, you’ll be invited to interact with a Mayan community and participate in a traditional ceremony led by a local shaman. You’ll witness a sacred ritual that the ancient Mayans have passed down from generation to generation and feel connected to the magic of the civilization’s traditions that live on today.


Yucatan cuisine is famously addictive, are you ready for the flavor sensations?

Enjoy a hearty meal of Mayan cuisine such as soup, chicken, vegetables, rice, beans, and fluffy handmade corn tortillas that will make your mouth water. Ask anyone who has joined a Cancun Mayan ruins excursion and they’ll tell you that the Yucatan lunch is unforgettable and a sensational journey in flavor and farm-to-table freshness. Mexican cuisine is so fantastic that it is designated a “Cultural Heritage of Humanity” by UNESCO and it is easy to taste why!


A Coba excursion brings you to the majestic Nohoch Mul, a pyramid taller than Chichen Itza's most famous structure!

Getting to Coba takes you off the beaten track as it is still well-hidden and continues to reveal its ancient secrets to modern-day explorers. Located about 45 minutes northwest of Tulum, Coba is a Mayan gem that’s home to the Nohoch Mul Pyramid. It is 137 feet tall and is 38 feet taller than its more famous ‘sister’ pyramid of Kukulkan at Chichen Itza.

Did you know that the Mayan world is connected by ancient roads called “sac be” meaning “white road”? There is an astounding “sac be” connecting Coba to the city of Chichen Itza, about 100 km of elevated construction using the white limestone of the area.

Your bilingual guide will offer expert details about the site, including a fascinating explanation of the “sac bes” — the extensive road system created by the Mayan people — and how stelae found at Coba were interpreted as an ancient prophecy that predicted the end of an era in December 2012. Walk in the footsteps of the ancient Maya, admire the incredible ball courts and structures still hiding under the trees, and fall in love with the Mayan culture.

Your Coba Mayan ruins excursion from Cancun concludes with your return to your hotel after a day of fascinating folklore, history, and exciting adventure.
