COBA MAYAN RUINS - COBA TOURS
If you're looking for more Mayan Ruins than just the
popular tours of Tulum and Chichen Itza, Coba is probably for you. Coba covers an immense area of some 50 square km. The ancient city
was begun in A.D. 600, and thousands of Maya are believed to have lived
here during the Classic period.
Only in recent years has the importance of Coba come to
light; now archaeologists are convinced that in time it will prove to be one
of the largest Mayan excavations on the Yucatan Peninsula. More than
5,000 mounds have yet to be uncovered!
Coba is situated in the jungle, and all along the paths
are mounds overgrown with vines, trees, and flowers. The fact that the
jungle hasn't been cleared away here nor all the mounds uncovered adds a feeling
of discovery to your visit. A typical tour to Coba includes a tour to
Tulum or an adventure in a Cenote as well, so you can hit two ancient sites
in one day!
