With that many people, either talk to a taxi van driver to inquire about a rate or a place like Edventures:

You can also use a bus. See the Mayan Sites topic in the Top Questions to the right (original view)

of course teleportation via time travel is still quickest....

The decision you need to make is whether or not you want to drive or not. If you want to relax, then get a tour operator to take you... or better yet... get a driver to bring you there in a van... so easy to do what you need to do at Coba without hiring a tour operator.... It's not very formal there; a bit primitive compared to the Disney-esque Chitchen Itza. Hire one of the ad hoc guides as you enter the ticket area and rent bicycles to roam the area. It's very less formal than Chichen Itza and requires your own initiative to make it wonderful. It is wonderful, but not MASSIVE like CI.

Rent a van with driver, or drive yourself.

Rent a guide at Coba.

Rent bicycles to roam the site.

Come back after your trip and take a diversion to Tulum beaches or Dos Ojos Cenotes on the way back.

The trip from PDC to Coba will be 2 hours to get there..

My two cents.
