  • If you're in Mexico, in the Yucatan Peninsula, you must not miss the excursion to the Maya ruins at Coba. The site is surrounded by greenery in the Mexican jungle and occupies an area of 90 km ². At the entrance to the site you can rent a bicycle or be accompanied on a rickshaw with driver. In the area there are many temples, buildings and fields for the ball game but the main attraction is undoubtedly Nohoch Mul which dominates the surrounding area and you can climb (120 steps) to get to the top and enjoy a breathtaking view over the whole area .

  • Very impressive place. We rented for a few pesos bikes and we shot it bump in just over two hours. The main attraction is the pyramid that is still scalable. From the top the view is remarkable. The descent might worry a little but it can be done safely with the help of the rope. Highly recommended!!!
