We traveled from Akumal to visit these Mayan ruins. Using the local collectivos (small mini buses) it took about 80 minutes in total . The ruins are spectacular and worth a visit . Much less crowded than Tulum. You can hire bikes or be chauffeured...More

Beautiful set of ruins that are best seen by bicycle- you can either rent one and ride yourself or hire a 'driver'. Just do it! and then go to the nearby cenote to cool off- about a 10 minute drive away.

We saw already a lot but this one + the climb was amazing. Coba temples are not very big. But this one don't miss. Owh please rent a bike!! It will save your foot/legs.

Hired a car from playa del Carmen and drove to Cobá before they stopped you climbing the temple. It’s a good walk to the temple while most people hire a bike to ride there. It’s a moderate climb up the Mayan temple but the view...More

We've been to many of the Mayan ruins in Mexico and this was definitely one of our favorites. The experience of riding bikes through the jungle was so much fun! We had a large group of 12 people ranging in age from 7 to 76....More

My girlfriend and I did a day excursion to Coba while staying in the Cancun Hotel Zone. We thought it was a good trip and Coba was worth visiting since they allow to climb the main temple there. That alone made the trip worth it....More

We enjoyed our guide's stories, loved the walk up there and the walk on the pyramid although we were a bit rushed with a cruise tour. It was fascinating and we really felt connected to the place. More time would have been good.

We toured Coba, Tulum, and Chichen Itza (while staying in Cancun) on our first visit to Mexico. One effect of the tours was to feel shame and disappointment with the Eurocentric educations that we had received, growing up in North America. We wish that we...More
