“Unforgettable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

Did exactly what was expected - lots of ruins to look at, were able to get up close & personal with several structures, take the "Mayan Limousine" (Trike with a bench) for a few pasos, if too hot or raining, as its a bit of a trek from the entrance to main structure...

“Incredibly impressive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

This was a truly impressive place - the sheer scale of the original city is unbelievable the fact that they have uncovered such a small fraction of it makes it a wonder just to stand and reflect on the vastness of it. The rest of my family enjoyed climbing the central pyramid - too much for me!!

“Wonderful experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

Well worth the drive from PDC. We took the bicycle taxis and had a knowledgeable guide. Don't spend your entire vacation on the beach or at an all-inclusive! My teens were a tough sell and loved this tour and learned something despite their best efforts to avoid anything educational.

“Coba”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

Best get a ride on the bikes to Coba as it is a long hot walk especially if you are going to climb to the top. Climbing to the top is not for the faint hearted though.
