Climbing pyramid

Hi there,

I`ve just heard that you can no longer climb the tallest pyramid at Coba, is this true?

Thanks,

Really? We were just there 5 weeks ago and climbed up, wonderful view. That would really be a shame if you can't climb it anymore.

If it has reopened, yours is the first post reporting it open again. It was closed for renovation.

Thanks for your replies. I`ve actually just had an email from my guide to confirm that the pyramid, Nohoch Mul, is closed for renovation.

It`s disappointing but I`m still looking forward to seeing the site.

Thanks Di

However, you can still climb at Ek Balam. Smaller ruins but very interesting.

I just read another review from Nov 5, 2009 that said they climbed it. Not sure if Nov 5 was the climb date or review date so that may account for inconsistencies.

The site is very interesting even if you can't climb a pyramid, which to be honest is a workout, hot and a little scary for me. The view is a nice shot of green tree canopy. There are buildings you can enter which makes for more hands on history.
