Chose to visit here to have a break from the sun lounger. Journey from Riviera Maya was relatively easy. Although Mexican driving takes some getting used to. Passed a few villages which seemed to consist of craft shops only. Didn't stop at the time but...More

Having visited many Mayan ruins, this place is still in my top 5 mainly for the fact that you can still climb the main pyramid. Definitely go early and rent bikes to see all the sites.

Coba is an amazing site to visit and well worth it. Entry at 70 pesos is low for the experience you'll have. There are various ruins through the jungle including the arena for the Mayan football games which ended in sacrifice! The site is extensive...More
