Coba. Tips (5)

Coba Ruins - Coba Mexico

Coba was a great little day trip for us. We rented a car in the town of Tulum and drove the approximately 30 miles to the ruins at Coba. Coba is in the jungle and is an amazing thing to see. It is amazing how the ancient Mayans built these towns & cities. Coba was not as large as I thought it was although the guides were saying they are still unearthing ruins every day. There are many ruins throughout the jungle. It gets quite "stifling" hot. I thought I'd be cool because we were in the jungle but it was quite the opposite. Be sure to bring plenty of water and bug spray.
Once you enter the park it is about a 10 minute walk along a trail until you get to the first of many ruins. You can rent a bike for I think it was a couple pesos, or a few dollars, we walked but I wish I would have rode the bike it looked like fun! Be sure to climb the "great pyramid". The climb is steep but coming down is not as scary as it looks.
You have to pay to get into the park, a couple pesos and beware you have to pay to use the restrooms! The restrooms are NASTY! Ick...just a word to the wise.

Coba

Coba is another Mayan city not too far from Cancun. Most of it is still covered by the jungle of Yucatan. This jungle is not a rainforest. It is a very dry forest with mainly bushes and not very high trees. Only during rainy season the jungle gets green.

For more please see my travelogue!

COBA

Coba is 3 hours from Cancun. It's in the middle of the jungle and it has lots of things to see. It'll be quite hot, so bring a large bottle of water. In Coba the tallest mayan piramid in the Yucatan peninsula is located. If you like climbing piramids and having a view of the jungle, then it's 100% recomendable. If you're not interested, keep on going.

COBA
Coba, an important archaeological site in the State of Quintana Roo, is located in the southeastern part of Mexico. Northwest of Tulúm is the Mayan city whose name means 'water stirred up by the wind'. This archeological zone is surrounded by five lakes named Macanxoz, covering an area of 11,119 acres.
A stone cylinder weighing approximately 5 tons was found near the Coba surroundings and was probably used for levering the sacred roads.

In Coba you can see the interesting work of three architectural groups:

The Coba
The Nonoch Mul
The Chucmuc Mul

Trip to Coba. Tallest of the Mayan ruins.
This is a huge area, much of it unrestored. You have to walk a lot but you see the huge temple, the arena where they played their famous ball game. There were several arenas, one compleyely restored and a couple partially restored. If your into history or architecture this is a must see.
