Mexico Panoramic Photo

You can no longer climb the pyramid at Chichen Itza, if that is what you'd like to do... better get to coba soon: The pyramid is taller, the cenote is better, and you get to climb the pyramid. There is a small Mayan Ball Court like at Chichen Itza. A guided tour will take you through serveral different areas of ruins before getting to the pyramid. There is still shade around these Mayan ruins, as the buildings, etc., at coba are still being uncovered (2008).

Coba is at the southern end of the Riviera Maya. It is inland, but not far from the Tulum Ruins. If you go on an arranged tour to Coba, there is a good chance you will also visit a very interesting cenote. We also saw a stalactite cave on our tour.

These photos were taken in 2008.
