Cobá is a large ancient city that dates back to the Pre-Columbian Mayan civiliation. Coba was once trading center with a population of more than 55,000 people. This ancient site is situated around 5 small lagoons and contains many large temple pyramids. Beautiful and interesting, Coba is worth a day trip. Coba is located about 90 km east of ancient site of Chichen Itza and is accessible by road (taxi or car) for a day trip. Coba Tours are available.

How do I get there?

Take a Tour: A really good option is to take a tour of Coba with a tour opertor. Most of the tours include a stop at the small Mayan Village Pac Chen for lunch and then a swim at the cenotes and even zip lines through the jungle.

Rent a Car: If driving to Coba, a good combo driving tour is Tulum and Coba. You can go to Tulum first ) ~1.5 hour drive from Cancun and then make your way to Coba. Coba is about 45 minutes west of Tulum. If driving, don't forget to take a map.

Take a Bus. Take a bus to the bus terminal, then a bus to Tulum and then a bus to Coba.

If you do this tour on your own, it's a great idea to hire a tour guide. Tour guides will be soliciting near the entrance where you purchase your tickets. You can have a private guide or share with others.

Recommended to bring: The area does not have much shade and during the day, the sun can get extremely hot so be warned. Bottled water can be purchased at the entrance. A hat is highly recommended. The area is large so comfortable walking shoes or hiking shoes recommended and insect repellent.
