Exklusivt för Viator: Arkeologguidad tur från Cancún med tidigt inträde till ruinerna i Cobá och cenotebad
Följ din guide, en certifierad arkeolog, och få en fördjupad visning av Cobás historia och arkitektur. Cobá kan skryta med nästan 6 500 konstruktioner inom den arkeologiska zonen, vilket täcker cirka 70 km². Cobá anses därför vara en av världens största förcolombiska bosättningar från den klassiska perioden. Omkring 50 000 personer bodde en gång i staden.
Stadens byggdes runt fem sjöar inuti den täta djungeln, vilket har gett staden dess namn: på mayaspråken betyder det "plats med oroligt vatten", på spanska "vatten som rörs upp av vind". När du går runt i ruinerna får du lära dig mer om platsens vägnätverk, steler (stenmonument) och hieroglyfiska texter.
Klättra upp till toppen av Yucatán-halvöns högsta mayapyramid Nohoch Mul som reser sig 42 meter över regnskogens golv och har en fantastisk utsikt. Du kan ta dig till pyramiden antingen till fots eller med cykel.
Svalka dig i värmen genom att bada i det klara vattnet i slukhålet (cenoten) Choo Há. Cenoten är perfekt för dykentusiaster och du kan snorkla i dess cirkulära inre.
Den är 10 meter djup och naturligt upplyst, så utsikten över vattnet är spektakulär.

Traveled to Cobá with Eric and Sara, had a great time. Departed Sun Palace at 0520 and returned about 1530. Eric was a quick and safe driver, Sara provided interesting information about Cobá and the Cenote. We were a small group so we had her full attention. This tour provides bicycles, this saved a lot of time. Included lunch at a traditional restaurant was good. Have been to Tulum and Chichen itza, this was smaller but very different because the jungle has taken back the area and you get to climb the temple.
I was disappointed in this experience. We were picked up at 5:15, but didn't get to Coba until 10:30. Our guide slept (and snored ), or was on his phone most of the driving time. He did give a brief description of the Mayan calendar which was interesting. Wouldn't recommend this 8 hr drive.
This tour was incredible! We learned a lot of interesting facts from our tour guide, got to stop at the cutest little souvenir/market on the way, experienced the park with close to no crowds, ate a fantastic lunch at a fun restaurant and the cenote swim was the cherry on top! Extremely beautiful, beyond gorgeous. The early access is completely worth it in my opinion. Even with a last minute switch in tour date, everything was right on schedule and extremely satisfactory. I would suggest calling ahead a couple of days to confirm your booking and the time that you will be picked up, that's how we found out that our tour had to move back a day because our booking party wasn't big enough. Other than that, everything was wonderful!
This was one of three tours we took on this vacation with Viator - so I want to open with the other two were amazing The Coba site was super interesting and the ruins were of course amazing. Our tour guide whom I will not name was quite disappointing. She had a very difficult time taking control or her group and being a leader. Although I am sure she must have some great knowledge of the ruins we were viewing, she did not tell us much of interest about what we were looking at. She was clearly more interested in telling stories about the local flora fauna, and wildlife, than the nature of the ruins or the day to day lives of the Mayans that inhabited them. Coba is an extremely large site so it is important to maintain a tight control of the group and the pace at which you are exploring the site - she was unable to do this. She was slow moving and had very limited agility to navigate the sites, or even the basic walking and stair work needed. We had been promised a schedule of a guided tour, followed by an hour of free time to explore the rest of the site that was not part of the tour, including climbing of the tallest ruin in the Yucatan. She ran such a poor tour that when she finally finished her part of it, she told us we only had 20 minutes of free time left to explore. Much of the group rebelled vocally, so with persuasion, she conceded to give us the promised hour. We also went to the local restaurant buffet lunch, and it was excellent. The Cenote swim was also very good. I am sure that with a different guide, this would have been 5 stars.
Very interesting tour and it was great to get there early before the crowds arrived. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
