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]

Chitenitza has Mayan remains surrounded by manicured lawns. However, if you want a more authentic experience then Coba is the place to go. The pyramids and the other structures literally rise up out of the jungle. What's even better is that you get to climb...More

We took the Coba tour provided through Princess lines. Everything about it was outstanding and the guides were the best. I climbed the tallest pyramid and recommend it if your in good shape and unafraid of heights and steep inclines.

Amazing opportunity to se ancient buildings - and to actually climb up a 42 meter high pyramid/temple. The climb is not for anyone afraid of heights. Going up is easy, the way down is worse...

This was a fun place as it seems to be the last Mayan ruin that you can climb. 130+ feet up was quite the experience, especially when you get to the top and see the amazing view.
