  • One of the most wonderful an archaeological site visits and the most exciting. In Coba, the pyramid Nohoch Mu, it is the second time I climb a pyramid. The feeling of climbing the sky with your feet and get to the top to see a wonderful landscape and where you can see that there are no limits. Up is impressive, you wonder how it was that I got all these meters, and now almost touching the sky. Pure adrenaline! The visit of the area of made so much fun when riding a bike, since the area is very large. It is wonderful to walk through as impressive ruins and stopping at each place to visit and take photographs. The landscape is wonderful and the story through your eyes is even better. This visit was one of the most exciting and funny, I laughed so much and I fell in love with the landscapes that looked at my eyes. Once again, the warmth of its people is comforting, and makes you feel welcome.

  • I visited this site with my wife and daughter to 18 months; I must say it was very interesting. For the first part of the tour we took a guide (38 u.s. dollars) who explained the various places on the site; then we rented a cart (for a few dollars) that brought us to the main attraction, the 40 m high pyramid on which you can climb.
