Ruin Tourist Spot
Marvel at centuries-old architecture with a visit to Cobá Zona Arqueológica Cobá, whose name means "water stirred by wind" in Mayan. Home to the tallest Mayan pyramid located in modern-day Mexico, which stands at 40 m (130 ft), the archaeological site showcases the ingenuity of ancient architects. Experience a steep climb to the top of the pyramid, where you can catch various views over the site. Take a tour to learn about the cultural and scientific achievements of the Mayan people, who were the first to acknowledge the importance of the number zero in mathematics.
