This was an awesome view into the past and present culture of the Mayan people. The ruins are absolutely fantastic, and the village visit was a humbling experience. Our guide was very informative and friendly. The cavern swim initially intimidated me, but it is a once in a lifetime experience not to be missed.

Highly recommended!

The Mayan Treasures Coba Tour was excellent! As a Shamanic practitioner and teacher, Arsenio, our guide gave us a look into his culture that was wonderful. Will do this tour again.

We felt that the experience of beinging guided by a local Mayan person was what set this apart from the others. Our tour guide had a wonderful sense of humour and connected with us immediately. His knowledge of the history and area was apparent from the beginning. We felt that he had a connection to the past and the future as this is his home. I don't think that we and tourists could have a better experience than that. The only detractor was that the time we had was too short for what we wanted to see! I would definitely do the same tour a second time.

The Mayan Treasures Coba Tour was absolutely amazing! Our guide Juan was the best tour guide we have ever seen. He was knowledgeable and passionate about the Mayan culture, he made the tour spectacular! As an archaeologist myself, I can say that Juan really knew his stuff as he guided us around Coba, he was quick to explain not only the archaeology but also the surrounding flora. The cenote visit was truly memorable. The private cenote was absolutely beautiful and uncrowded. The traditional Mayan restaurant was charming and the food was some of the best I've ever had! Finally Juan guided us through a traditional Mayan home with a shamanistic ritual and musical performance. Juan explained the day to day runnings of the home and taught us how to respectfully thank the family for showing us their home. Five stars for Juan! Our driver Diego was also great! He got us around quickly and efficiently. He was quick to help us out of the van and offer a water. Another five stars for Diego.
Thank you so much for the great memories! They will last us a lifetime!!!
