    Coba

    Coba has the second largest pyramid in the peninsula. Coba is definitely a nice site with unique buildings among the Yucatan jungle. From the top of the huge pyramid one can see miles and miles of beautiful vegetation and ruins. Check my Coba page for more details.

    COBA

    On the way to Coba we went into the jungle looking for Spider monkeys.This building was home to an elderly couple who lived simply with no running water or electric.

    It took quite a long walk to get here, but it is simply 'AWESOME' Nohoch Mal Pyramid, the tallest on the pensinsula reaches 140 feet into the sky.It took quite a climb to get to the top and is very steep.
    Coba was once home to as many as 40,000 mayans.

    The Mayan ruins at Coba, around 40 minutes inland from Tulum. Awesome.

    It is a very large site, with the ruins still hidden among the jungle. We hired mountain bikes and saw all the main pyramids and temples in about 2 hours. We also saw humming birds and a tucan. You can climb the main pyramid and have a breathtaking view over the jungle at 42 metres high (equiv. to a 12th floor), with only the eagles above you. And the silence...

    Watch out for wild crocodiles on your way back to the village. They live in the lake and the 'caretaker' will ask you for 5 pesos to take a picture of them.

    Visit Coba. Many people visit Tulum, which are awesome ruins by the water, but few people visit Coba in the jungle. When we went, our tour group were the only people there.
