Playa to Coba ruins

I have been to many archaeological sites in all of the Americas. Can I consider Coba to be one that you should visit if you're in the area? Totally!

Site is not far from Tulum, (45 minutes to 1 hour). Contrarily to other Maya sites, you can still climb the biggest pyramid! This is a big plus as you can really sense how these buildings were a major achievement when they were built, if you're on the top of it!

Site's is in the forest so it' s never too hot and there's plenty of shade. For those who can't walk too much, you can hire a tricycle taxi, (man powered), for a few pesos).

One part of the site is more quiet so you can go there to look for birds, especially early in the morning.

This was last stop for this trip. It was good to be back, to revisit some places and discover new ones.

Next stop, Nicaragua!
