This is a really nice place to have a day out. It is fun being able to actually climb the main piramid. The views are great from the top. people need to be careful on the way down if they are unsteady on their feet as it is pretty steep. My wife resorted to the old"bottom shuffle" down the piramid. It is hot and you need to take plenty to drink with you. The drinks inside a twice the price of what you would expect to pay, so be advised to take a "big bottle of water each". Not nearly as crowded as Chichen Itza, which is still great to visit too.

A great place to visit and climb the pyramid! Don't pass up the opportunity to climb to the top. Lots of walking involved, but they do have bikes and bike taxis if needed.

We took 2 tours during our stay in Playa Del Carne. To Coba/Tulum & to Chichen Itza. This was the second time I'd visited the site, the first being nearly 20 years ago in 1995. Strangely (or according to our guide for financial reasons and a sharing of tourist dollars between Q'Roo and the local government that houses Chichen Itza), just 85 of the 72sq.km site of Coba has been opened to the public and we just saw pehaps 10-12 buidling s of the 6000+ structures that have been discovered there. BUT, the big thing is the opportunity to climb to the top of the main pyramid and look out over the tree tops when you reach the summit (123 steps). One of the few sites that still allows touriosts to climb a significant structure.

We really enjoyed the rental bicycles to tour around the ruins at Coba. We also loved the view from the top after climbing up the pyramid.

Spectacular place to experience, lovely lake and if you are lucky to get a guide even better. If you can climb the pyramid the view even if you only go half way is breath taking!
