Coba Private Tour

Nothing can set you up for the profoundly moving experience of climbing the steps of the second tallest pyramid ever built by the Mayans at the ruins of Coba! Once on the 40 meter (130 ft) pyramid, your prize will be the same stunning views saw by the very Mayans who so breathtakingly constructed and manufactured this structure hundreds of years prior! Absolute Adventure’s Coba private tour offers a unique look into the rare past of the Maya people.

Found a little bit more than 2 hours from Cancun via car, in the heart of the Mayan wilderness, the name Coba originates from the Mayan expression “Cob Ha”, signifying “sloppy water”. This is because of the amount of lagoons that can be found in the area. Coba was the biggest city amid the Mayan human population during the Classic period, which kept going from around 100 to 900 AD. At its top, it was home to more than 50,000 individuals.

 

Your exclusive visit from Cancun will start with going to the “Coba Group”, which involves a visit to the the sanctuary devoted to the rain god Chaac, the highest point of which is a most loved resting spot for vultures. Different elements of this region include luxurious palaces and the celebrated Mayan ball court. By the ball court, you can likewise see a ceiba tree which was idealized by the Mayans. Your local archeological guide will be upbeat and enthused to share the rich Mayan history of Coba with you and answer any inquiries you may have.

After an energizing bicycle ride for lively sorts (or a tricycle taxi) through the wilderness, you’ll touch base at the old pyramid referred by local people as Nohuch Mul, which signifies “large mount” in the local Mayan tongue. Moreover, it is the tallest pyramid at the Coba archeological site and in the whole Yucatan Peninsula. Here you’ll have the opportunity to see two showings of the Descending God (Honeybee God) etched on the temple’s upper chamber.

 

On our ride back through the wilderness, we’ll stop to tour the Xaibe, an observation tower at the intersection of two sacbeobs, which are raised pathways made by the Mayans. Truth be told, the longest of the sacbeobs begins in Coba and extends more than 100 km before finishing in a little city near Chichen Itza. Once we’ve rested to see a second ball court in the middle of the dense wilderness, we’ll visit the Paintings Group structure, where you can see great Mayan artwork.

After going by Coba, we offer different activities for a day trip: for the individuals who love history and the Mayan progression, we can add a visit to Tulum ruins.

If you’d like to chill out, we propose going snorkeling in a cenote or with swimming with turtles, and also making a stop at a customary Mexican eatery. Give us a call or shoot us an email for more information about our exciting Coba day trip.
