After an early morning pick up and couple hours jaunt south of Cancun on an air conditioned bus you are going to visit Tulum ruins! The certified tour guide will take you around the ocean front site and explain the layout and meaning of the most iconic buildings and temples around such as “El Castillo” and the “Temple of the Descending God”, the astronomy of things and how they used to be a key point for maritime trade back in the day. A Tulum ruins tour brings you back in time and to the edge of the world!
Then is time to take off to Coba ruins, a few kilometers west of Tulum. This off the beaten path Mayan ruins site has a good 1000 years of history behind it and it once was a very powerful city having influenced the Yucatan peninsula, Belize and Guatemala before the rise of Chichen Itza. You will climb Nohoch Mul pyramid which is 137 feet height and has a total 120 steps, feeling the ancient vibes emanating from the stones. From the top of this Mayan pyramid you will have a 365-degree view of the jungle as well as other big structures on the site and the two lagoons that surround it. The Cancun day trip to Coba wraps up with a dip in the cool and crystal waters of cenote Tancach-Ha and a delicious and authentic Yucatecan lunch.
