Best Coba Ruins Day Trip from Cancun or Riviera Maya
Surrounded by two large lagoons, Coba boasts archeological wonders and is home to the tallest Mayan pyramid in the Yucatan region: the Nohoch Mul Pyramid, which rises an impressive 140 feet (42 meters) above the rainforest floor. You can climb all the way to the top and enjoy panoramic views of the miles of jungle that surrounds the archeological site.
You'll have approximately two hours of free time at the site where you can wander on your own or stick with the professional guide. Bicycles and pedicabs are available for rent (for an additional charge) to take a quick tour of the ruins on wheels! After visiting the site, you'll head to a local restaurant for an authentic Yucatan-style lunch (included in the tour price).
After lunch, you'll stop at an authentic Mayan village and interact with its inhabitants. You'll have the opportunity to study the local flora and fauna and learn about Mexican traditions, culture and history directly from the village people. Bring your bathing suit along as you'll also stop at fresh-water sinkhole, where you can take a swim to freshen up!

With his encyclopaedic knowledge, Alfredo was in inspiration to anyone wishing to gain an insight into Mayan culture and heritage.
