Stop At: Zona Arqueologica de Coba, Carretera Federal Tulum 307, Coba 77793 Mexico

Cobá, considered one of the most important cities in Mesoamerican history. During its peak between 500 and 900 A.D., Cobá was home for about 50,000 inhabitants, and also the central terminus where the Mayan system of roadways interconnected. These raised stone paths, called saucebox connect the buildings of Cobá and also connect it to other Mayan cities. The longest one runs 62 miles (100 kilometers) and reaches the city of Yaxuna.

Coba’s main pyramid, Nohoch Mul, is the tallest in the Yucatan at 137 feet (42 meters tall). Walk around or ride to the pyramid, then climb to the top for see panoramic views of the surrounding jungle.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Cenotes Park Hidden Treasures, Carretera Tulum-Cancun km 115-116 Rancho la Teresita, Tulum 77780 Mexico

Once you’ve taken lunch, we’ll move on to the Hilarios Cave. Enter the cenote through a spiral staircase, emerging into a cave full of countless stalactites and crystalline water. A cool, refreshing dip in the mineral-rich water is the perfect afternoon pick-me-up.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Tulum Archaeological Site, Carretera Federal, Cancun - Chetumal Km 230, 307, Tulum 77780 Mexico

After an early morning pickup from your hotel, we’ll drive you to Tulum, an ancient Mayan city on a cliff overlooking the ocean. As your guide walks you through this 10th century city, you’ll admire its archaeological wonders such as Temple of Frescoes, the Temple of the God of Wind, and El Castillo.

Tulum’s uniqueness lies in its combination of historic ruins set against the backdrop of the crystal-blue Caribbean.

Stop At: Playa Paraiso, Carretera Boca Paila Tulum KM 1.5, Tulum 77780 Mexico

The final stop before returning to Playa del Carmen will be Playa Paraíso, Tulum’s white sand beach, where the Mayan Riviera stretches 75 miles (120 kilometers) to the north and the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve protects the area’s prolific aquatic life to the south.

The entire experience was very good. If you want to experience a lot in a short period of time, this is a great price. If you want to learn all about the history in detail, choose a different tour.
The driver was a speed demon, passing more than most would feel comfortable with and may have been practicing for some Mexican Daytona. Be prepared for a good workout if you climb the pyramid at Cobá, bring more water. You may also want to bring a small flashlight and a waterproof camera for the Cenote. It can be dark in there and you want to see as much as you can. Water shoes for your feet if they are sensitive. Tulum is beautiful, mostly the beach. You don’t have as much time at the Ruins, unless you want it. Bring your towel from the hotel. It is a long day, but you will experience a lot. I rated the tour excellent because it was a good price for all the sites. If you’re picky and want a lot of education along the way, consider another tour, perhaps it was just the guide?

We really enjoyed this day out. Each part had something special to remember, our driver (Anthony) and tour guide (Obet) were excellent and made the day relaxing and enjoyable. Even though the tour ended with a visit to a beach and we'd already had several days relaxing on Playacar beach, we just took the time to unwind at the beach bar, have a cocktail and enjoy the views of a different area. It was really reasonably priced too in comparison to other tours on offer at our hotel and around Playa del Carmen. We thoroughly recommend this tour.

I tried leaving a review after the tour but couldn't with my phone. I am glad. I would have rated it 5 stars either way, but after taking another tour in the region, I have another level of appreciation. George was our tour operator. His English was great and he was very informative. He was very passionate about the Myan's and their culture. This tour fits in so many things and is such a great value. It is also small and very personal. We had 10 people in our group and they did a great job of making us all feel welcomed. George spoke Spanish and English and even greeted a German couple in their native language. I can not recommend it enough!!!! If you are in Playa and have any interest in either of these ruins, do this!!!

The tour guide we have is not great. He seems to be rushing everything. He would walk really fast and leaving us behind. Do not recommend Coba and the cave. Seems to be waste of time, especially you are only staying at Cancun for very short time period. Also the lunch place is horrible, I could bearly eat anything. Do not recommend this tour. Bad experience.

the long trip started early but you want to get to Coba before the busses come. great trip, only part I didn't like (and no one did) was that at 4:00 we were ready to go home and they stopped at this beach for 2 hours (we all are staying at beach resorts).
