    What to Expect
    This fascinating and informative tour takes you on a journey to the real Mexico to a time when the Mayan people ruled this part of the world. During your tour you will visit the archaeological site of Coba where the more adventurous can climb the pyramid of Nohoch Muul, the highest in the state. From the top of Nohoch Muul, you'll be amazed by the stunning views. Discover the secrets of the mysterious Mayans as your expert guide entertains you with detailed information and fascinating stories to complement the tour.

    From here your tour continues on and you'll soon find yourself in a small Mayan community to experience their day to day life. Your visit might include seeing the local school, visiting a Mayan house as well as learning about how the people make their living from the land. This is "authentic Mexico" at its best and you will have the chance to browse the villagers handicrafts where you may just find the perfect souvenir.

    In keeping with the local theme of the trip, you will enjoy a delicious Mexican-style lunch with something to suit all tastes - you don’t have to be a lover of hot and spicy food to appreciate the dishes on offer!

    After lunch, the final stop is at an underground river cavern (cenote). The cenotes truly capture the natural beauty of this area as well as offer the perfect spot to cool down with a dip in the crystal clear waters. They are an extraordinary natural phenomena that you won’t want to miss experiencing or photographing.

    Your tour ends with hotel drop-off.

    My husband and myself went on this trip as it looked very interesting as your able to climb the great Pyramid. We were picked up at 7:00 am in the morning so a nice early start to the day. We got on the coach to be greeted by our tour guide for the day Raul. What a lovely guy.

    Very interesting tour. The guides were great. The bus tour stopped for us to have breakfast then on to coba. The site is very big so we suggest renting the bikes. They are very reasonable. Then on to the cenote and an excellent buffet lunch. A whole day tour with 2 meals
