I went to Coba as part of the Mayan experience. At first I was a little unimpressed, but climbing the pyramid was worth it. It was definitely a one of a kind experience. You can rent bicycles for $4.00 to ride down to the pyramid. Climbing the pyramid can be dangerous though. It's steep and all they have is a rope to hold onto. One missed step and you're a goner. Once you're at the top the view is breathtaking.

The climb to the top of the tallest ruin in the Yucatan was amazing! The view from the top was well worth the effort!

So if you have been to any of the other Mayan archeological sites you will already have picked up most of the information the guides at the entrance will have. Save your money.

After the first pyramid and ball court there is a stand where you can rent bikes or hire a two person bike taxi this I do recomend. We rented the bikes. My son & I love riding so this added to the visit. My wife and daughter were both a little wobely so should have gotten them the taxi.

Others have described the site better than I could so read those reviews if you want a detailed account of the ruins.

One thing - you can climb the big pyramid here unlike some of the other sites. Not for the faint of heart but once your up there the view is worth it.

We love this type of trip but this was a whistle stop to one person's 'house' and didn't really get any essence of how they really live.
