“Very cultural”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

Just got back today from a week in Cancun. We took the trip to Coba and the Mayan village, worth every $ that we paid, no more to pay after you book as all entrance fees are covered. If you do decide to go on this trip take some colour pencils, colouring books or other such like things for the children you will meet in the village. A really good trip, going in to the jungle to see the biggest pyramid in the area and deff take the 'Mayan Taxi' a two seater bike taxi peddled for you for a 100 Peso, walk in there as it is a long 6 mile round trip in very hot weather, not for anyone other than the ultra fit! The lunch provided in the village was great and to fin the day a swim in a sink hole in the jungle. The guide was great and we were a small group of 7 so we had every chance to have questions answered. Water provided but recommend you take a further bottle with you. Deff recommend this trip.

“a great day out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

All of it was very interesting and informative. Our guide was superb. Take the tricycles to Coba as it's uncomfortable to walk in the heat- doesn't cost much.

“Do Climb the Pyramid!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Not so exploited as Chichen Itza and you can climb the pyramid (117 steps) where you get a great view.

I wouldn't take the "bike taxies", the walk is not that long.

“Awesome Climb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

We rode bikes with our guide Daniel to the main temple at Coba. Most of the group climed to the top. I made it over 3/4 of the way which is a big accomplishment for this fear of heights gal! This is the last year that Coba will be open to climb, so if you are in the area it is worth the trip!
