Join a local guide for a glimpse of the Maya. This National Geographic-style tour includes the ancient city of Coba, a swim in a cenote and a visit to the beautiful walled Maya temples of Tulum. Deep in the jungle, nestled on the shores of four lakes, Coba is home to the tallest pyramid in the northern Yucatan. Visitors enjoy a fascinating guided tour of the archaeological site and may be lucky enough to spot colorful forest birds and huge blue morph butterflies. Approximate time: 2 hours.
Next stop is one of the Riviera Maya's cenotes or sinkholes hidden in a cave. Cool off in the crystal-clear waters and admire the impressive stalactites and stalagmites. Approximate time: 45 minutes. Lunch is a delicious combination of regional dishes. Local arts and crafts may be purchased after lunch in nearby stores. Approximate time: 1 hour.
The last part of this incredible journey is the visit to one of the Maya World’s most beautiful ancient cities, Tulum, a cliff top citadel with breathtaking views of the Caribbean, miles of white sand along the Quintana Roo coast and the dense jungle inland.
