If you haven't already climbed this ruins, you best hurry. It will be closed to the public climbing it in three weeks according to our tour guide. We chose this over Chichen Itza due to the fact that we could climb it, and apparently due to danger to tourists, is will soon be closed to this. It was pretty amazing, and being twice as tall a Chichen Itza, it felt pretty good to do it. I've read reviews about people doubting the sincerity of the Mayan Village after this tour, but our guide said the dad of the family visited works for the tour company at the cenote included in the tour, which is why tourists are allowed to visit his home in the village. They make no bones about the fact that they have solar energy, or television - but they do have a little simpler life than most. Get real if you think an entire world isn't going to fall into the materialism that we've all been attracted to. Also, seeing the Coba ruins, and learning the history from our amazing guide, Rudolfo, was a great experience. It was especially great since we had just seen one of the ball games played out at Excaret the day prior. A wonderful experience, but given that you won't be able to climb these ruins shortly, I would likely visit Chichen Itza in the future.
