Coba (pronounced cō-bǝ) is an ancient Maya city on the Yucatán Peninsula, located in what is now northeastern Quintana Roo, Mexico. The site is the nexus of the largest network of stone causeways of the ancient Mayan world, and it contains many engraved and sculpted stelae that document ceremonial life and important events of the Late Classic Period (AD 600-900) of Mesoamerican civilization.[1] The adjacent modern village bearing the same name, reported a population of 1,278 inhabitants in the 2010 Mexican federal census.[2]

We took our grandson on this tour while staying at Beach Palace Resorts. Note "grandson": we were quite surprised when the first thing that happened when we got there we were hooked up to a repelling line and dropped over a cliff [not really 'dropped']. While catching our breath from that we were then hooked up to a zip line!!... More

This was a fantastic experience for myself and my adult son. Before I get into the fantastic part let me give you a few pointers about the trip that you need to know going in. We booked this excursion during our cruise on the Allure of the Seas. We arrived in Cozumel on a Friday in early February. For this... More

We decided on three Mayan sites to visit while on the Yucatan Peninsula: Chichen Itza, Tulum and Coba. Our order of preference after having experienced all three are Coba first, Tulum second, and Chichen Itza third. This goes against most reviews, which rave about Chichen Itza. Here is why we choose Coba. The great Mayan cities were vast centers covering... More

We climbed to the top. I understated this is the only temple allowed to climb. Rent the bicycle, walkable but a long day. Enjoyed the many ruins at the site, most have been destroyed and covered by the growth of jungle. the ball courts are awesome. 7 total. We had a guided tour thru Alama tours. Every detail of importance... More

This was our favorite archaeological site. The ruins are spread out over a lot of ground, so the inexpensive bike rentals were a great way to explore. You can also hire a "Mayan Taxi" (a pedicab) if you're not inclined to pedal. Bikes let you get to the further reaches of the site and away from where the tour bus... More

Mayan ruins that you can actually touch and climb. Didn't pay for tour guide. 70 pesos admission. We did pay for a,"mayan tricycle"ride to the big pyramid, it was a very hot day and worth the 125 pesos round trip for 2. The view from the top was worth the climb!

Yes there were lots of people but unlike Chichen Itza, there were no vendors selling things that you can buy in every store. I hated chichen Itza for that fact. We didn't get to see everything because we didn't have enough time but I climbed to the top. My partner stopped 1/4 of the way. It is steep and uneven... More

After visiting Chichen Itza and Uxmal this site didn't impress me anymore. The ruins are very worn. The view at the top of the pyramid is nice, but actually the only thing you see is trees. There are many tourists.

This is the best possible Mayan site visit - shaded woodland/ "jungle"; bikes to rent for a mere 50 pesos; charming shaded paths to all the ruins. Clear signs(!). And, almost forgot to mention, the ruins are magnificent. The tallest pyramid is still open for you to scramble up to the top where you'll have the greatest view over the... More
