We made the wrong decison of going with an appalling tour company called Easy tours. As the name suggests they take everything easy and don't care about the customers. They showed us a couple of cenotes, a mayan village(which was the worst part of the trip) and the coba ruins(which were the highlight).

Here are my honest suggestions to anyone who wants to visit Coba Mayan Village -

1) If you are based in Playa - the best form of transport is hiring a cab or collectivo. Trust me it's worth the money because you get to see the ruins at your own pace. The guides explanation of the hiostory wasn't interesting at all and I couldn't see any other guide in the vicinity offering something different. It's better to buy a guidebook at the souvenir shop.

2) Do not get fooled into seeing the village as people there were acting to be 'poor' to sell their products. The blessing ceremony they did made no sense at all. It was more like a stage act. Outside of those little boundaries(or rather a set!!) everything was neat and clean, beautiful streets and expensive souvenirs.

3) If you have no health/arthritis issues - do climb the pyramid. We went on a day that was overcast and it constantly drizzled from the minute we got into the tour bus right until the end of the day but the view was certainly worth the climb. It's anything but scary from up there unless you have a fear of heights.

4) It's okay if you don't want to ride a bike to reach the main pyramid. The entire walk wasn't even a mile and we enjoyed walking under the shade of the trees.

5) Do not forget insect repellants. The ruins are inside a jungle so there were few insects around.

All in all a great place to spend time and a total Mayan style construction as told by the guide we had at Chichen Itza(which has Aztec influences too). Though there is no clear history...it's quite intriguing.

We rented a car from our resort at Maroma Beach and drove early in the AM to get there early, avoid the heat as well as all the tour buses - smart idea! Hire a guide for the first part of the tour - we learned a lot and it really added to the experience. The climb is fun - up more than down.
