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]

Enjoyed this trip, very informative with lots of facts and details from our guide Roberto. We went on an organised trip through Thomsons we were first at the attraction so got photos before anyone else arrived. Had a good meal at Coba and visited the Mayan village. Quite a humbling experience. Cooled off with the Cenote swim and finished off... More

We booked a tour through Xcaret to visit Coba followed by time at Xel-Ha Park. Booking was easy and the tour group was small at under 10 people. The shuttle from our hotel was included and was on time. It took us to Xel-Ha Park where we changed onto a big tour bus and headed to Coba. They provided us... More

The best ruins in Quintana Roo. If you're looking for the real deal Mayan experience look no farther. Climbing to the top of the pyramid was the highlight.

These were probably our favorite ruins in the area due to the shaded area, ability to climb around and the bicycle transport. We traveled with our 4 and 7 year old boys and it was great to be able to take a bike down to all of the ruins and then let them walk around and explore. They enjoyed it... More

Stopped here en route to Tulum, easy to locate. 50 pesos to park then I think 70 pesos?? Per person to enter. It's a reasonable trek so suggest a good level of fitness. We were feeling lazy so hired one of the bike guys to cycle us which worked in our favour as he was happy to talk about the... More

Visited this place on June 6th and it was a unique experience. Taking a tour of Chichen-Itza was one of my personal dreams come true but taking a tour of this place was just different. We took a private taxi here and only paid 64 pesos per person which is about $4 usd to get in. Inside the site you... More

Huge. You rent bicycles to get around. Fun and you get some exercise. The places are spread out. Some amazing ruins. Lots of people climbed the tall one. My heart didn't want to chance it but I was really tempted. We had seen this and Tulum the same day. Bit of a ride but worth it. I am amazed at... More

Awesome excursion, but recommend doing it when the weather is not quite as hot. They claim that some of the pyramids will be closed off to tourists soon, and I believe the highest/tallest one there will be shortly -- try to climb it before they do!

The price of admission was very inexpensive. It cost's approximately 50 pesos, less than $5. We toured the first section which had numerous ruins. If you want you can pay for a Mayan guide to take you to each ruin and explain the sights. After a 2 km hike you come to the main prize which is a 9 story... More
