Only a handful of the 5000 mounds have been uncovered at this jungle ruin site. To see all of the excavated ruins, the return circuit is approximately 7 km. Walking early in the morning through this jungle site is most enjoyable, though reasonably priced bicycle and tricycle (driver included) rentals are available. Unlike Tulum and Coba, most of the structures at Coba are accessible. Even the pyramid, which is taller that the one at Chichen Itza, can be climbed. Besides the impressive buildings, there are also a number of carved stelae throughout the site. That the jungle is largely uncleared and most of the mounds are unexcavated, adds to a feeling of discovery when visiting this site. If possible, try to visit this site prior to visiting the more restored sites of Tulum and Chichen Itza.
