Coba (pronounced cō-bǝ) is an ancient Maya city on the Yucatán Peninsula, located in what is now northeastern Quintana Roo, Mexico. The site is the nexus of the largest network of stone causeways of the ancient Mayan world, and it contains many engraved and sculpted stelae that document ceremonial life and important events of the Late Classic Period (AD 600-900) of Mesoamerican civilization.[1] The adjacent modern village bearing the same name, reported a population of 1,278 inhabitants in the 2010 Mexican federal census.[2]

Took the bus for 40 pesos. Entrance was 70 pesos. Rented bikes for another 50 pesos and spent a couple of hours. Climbed to the top. Probably have to take a taxi back to tulum for 400 pesos

The view from the top of the tallest Mayan pyramid is spectacular and well worth all the hard work to climb the tall steps. Careful on the descent as the stones can be slippery and you will definitely be tired. We saw a number of...More
