I visited Coba after booking the tour through Olympus Tours in the Lobby of The Royal Playa Del Carmen, the hotel we were staying at. The agents at Olympus helped greatly picking this tour, stating it was not as busy as other more popular ruins in the area. I thoroughly enjoyed the ruins themselves, hearing the history from our guide, explaining what many of them were used for and the importance of them in the culture. We were not at the ruins for very long, so everything seemed kind of rushed, and there was a large amount of area to cover. There are bike rentals you can use to try and speed up the process of traveling through the area. Although they are available, they are not necessary as long as you walk at a fairly brisk pace between the ruins. My wife and I scaled the pyramid, and it isn't for the feint of heart, although I do believe at the time of my writing this it is no longer allowed.
Following the tour of Coba, we went through a hike through the jungle and zip lining, followed by swimming in a cenote. I would have to say the second portion of the tour was by far my favorite, but I know my wife being a history teacher, really enjoyed the information and the sites to be seen at the ruins themselves.
