What to expect

Uncover the history of Coba and visit its ruins at your own pace on this self-guided tour! Hear the story of how this astonishingly advanced civilization rose and fell and get to know the little-known facts about the unique trees found in these ruins.

Visit the ball court, used for ceremonial purposes, to depict a struggle between dark and light, and then head on to La Iglesia Pyramid and the Crossroads Pyramid, an example of an unusual twist on the usual Mayan architecture. As you walk, you’ll notice the surprisingly-intact network of ancient roads crisscrossing the site.

Admire the Pyramid of the Painted Lintel, an impressive limestone structure once painted in bright colors. Learn all about the religious beliefs and practices of the ancient Mayans, as well as the infamous calendar by which they tracked the passage of years. Conclude your tour at the foot of the Nohoch Mul Pyramid, the second-largest Mayan pyramid in the entire world, and choose to scale the 120 steps to survey the Coba Ruins from a whole new perspective.
