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...more

If you're in the greater Cancun area, I'd highly recommend taking the time to head down to Coba. It's about a 1.5 hour drive from Playa del Carmen area; generally the direction of travel is down to Tulum (45 mins) and then further inland (45...More
The sites were phenomenal. The tour guides of the sites were wonderful and very informative. The reason this only gets 2 stars and not 5 is because were were told that water & beverages would be provided on the bus, they were not. We were...More
My husband & I stayed at the Bahia Principe Akumal complex which was about half an hour from Tulum. We had visited the area some years ago so had already been to the more popular archaeological sites. Coba was a less advertised location. Tui had...More

Part of a whole day tour with Xtramile Tours, these ruins are being slowly uncovered from the all consuming jungle that has covered them for hundreds of years.
Be sure to get the best experience by having a guide that knows the history, myths and...More
This was part of our 4x1 tour by Amazing VIP tours. Didn’t know what to expect since this wasn’t on our radar prior to coming to Cancun. Booked this at our hotel and couldn’t be more satisfied. A little bit of a drive from Tulum...More
Great place to visit. Much less commercialized than Chitzan-Itza or Tulum. Still being discovered and you can see how much work it takes to excavate these things and how the jungle destroys them. Monkeys were awesome.
I did a bike tour through Coba. It’s nice to ride to the ruins. I love the clim up the temple to see the view of the jungle. The clim up is a little unstable especially going down, but worth the trouble.

Yes, there are taxis nearby. However, I met some travellers who had hired a taxi from Tulum to Coba, and they had the driver wait for them at the exit of the ruins. Then, their driver took them to nearby cenotes (I joined them), and then their driver took them back to Tulum.
So, I would suggest negotiating with a driver in Tulum and ask him to wait outside of Coba while you see the ruins. Then, he can take you to the nearby cenotes before going back to Tulum. The cenotes are worth a visit!
