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]

Each of the maya ruins have their own characteristic, and they all worth a visit. This one in particular it spread on a good area, so that you can have nice and long walk along paths in the forest, especally if you get lost twice like we did. You can easily reach the ruins with the ADO bus from Tulum... More

At first i was hesitant about visiting this place. Went as part of all day excursion. The pyramid itself is nice, you can take unlimited fotos and selfies. You can walk to the site or rent a bicycle to get there. Do it on a cool day as it gets quite humid once you reached level. For the courageous ones,... More

We arrived early so no lines! We rented bikes (recommended) and rode to the biggest pyramid first. We wanted to climb it before the crowds or heat. It was not too difficult for me and I am not in great shape. However my husband is afraid of heights and he could only make it half way up! Since we had... More

We drove from Cancun (2hrs) and arrived at 8am, just as the site was opening...the car park was empty! We hired bikes, explored the site at our own pace and barely saw any other tourists. Around 11am the tour buses start to arrive and the site becomes much busier. It's well worth the journey to visit Coba! It took us... More

We booked this tour as part of a shore excursion through Royal Caribbean. If you are doing this, be aware that travel to and from is a very long process, requiring a 40 minute ferry ride from the island of Cozumel to Playa del Carmen, then another hour and 40 minute van or bus ride to the ruins. If you... More

We visited as part of a small tour. Stunning place and not as busy as other ruins we have visited. Well worth the small cost of hiring a rickshaw (about £3 for the return trip) or use one of the free cycles as it is quite a long walk to the main temple. Sturdy shoes recommended as the area around... More

The most important thing: you get to climb on the ruins! On top you will have a great panoramic view of the Mayan jungle. Take a look at the efigy of the descending God before heading down. Do not wear heals (saw some girls with wedges) unless you want to break your neck coming down on the steep steps of... More

We visited Coba as a part of a tour. Absolutely beautiful temple and other ruins. The climb down is pretty scary...I wouldn't recommend bringing young children up to the top. Take the rickshaws ($17 US for two rickshaws which fit 4 people). The drivers are quite informative and you'll appreciate not having to walk all the way back (especially if... More
