Coba (pronounced cō-bǝ) is an ancient Maya city on the Yucatán Peninsula, located in what is now northeastern Quintana Roo, Mexico. The site is the nexus of the largest network of stone causeways of the ancient Mayan world, and it contains many engraved and sculpted stelae that document ceremonial life and important events of the Late Classic Period (AD 600-900) of Mesoamerican civilization.[1] The adjacent modern village bearing the same name, reported a population of 1,278 inhabitants in the 2010 Mexican federal census.[2]

We visited Coba with Yalku tours (which I highly recommend, best tour I've ever been on) and it was so incredible! Climbing up the main pyramid was an experience I'll remember for my whole life, and the whole biking concept is so cool! I felt...More

Went here on our Honeymoon and it was great! You ride a bike to the ruins of a pyramid and climb to the top. Went swimming in an underground cenote and it was very refreshing after the climb. Highly recommend!

These ruins are fantastic! Renting a bike and cycling along the warm gravel paths feels truly special, and the view from the top of the main pyramid is breathtaking. One tip: be sure to go as early as possible to avoid crowds.

To date, I have visited 3 Mayan archeological sites: Chichen Itza, Tulum, and Coba. Though they all were fascinating and had their own pros and cons, I think my favorite of the three was Coba. A big part of that probably had to do with...More

Myself and my husband went to Coba recently and, having previously visited Chichen-Itza and Tulum, were very excited to see this site. We did not use a tour guide as we did not want to be limited by any time restrictions and we were glad...More

I saw the zip line and it is outside the Coba ruins but did not go on it. It only goes over the laguna and I am sure you can go on it without being part of some excursion group. There are at least 3 options on hwy109... More

I would not consider it strenuous. The walk there as mentioned is flat. The only thing considered strenuous is the climb itself but totally worth for the view. Going down is harder but taking your time both ways and maybe... More
