Visit of Maya Ruins Coba and swimming at Grand Cenote
Coba (Maya: Cob Ha - muddy water)
The Maya name was Cob Ha and means muddy water, named after the muddy lagoons close to the site. Coba is the largest and oldest Mayan Ruin site in the Yucatan, with an estimated 6, 500 structures dating back to 200 B. C. Coba has the highest pyramid in Yucatan, at nearly 140 feet ( 42 m ) high, with 120 steps to the top, giving you a fantastic view over the jungle.
Enjoy a delicious lunch Maya style in a beautiful restaurant with an amazing view over the lagoon of Coba. At the buffet you can choose from the salad bar and between Maya specialties like Cochinita Pibil or Pollo Pibil, 1 soda is included.
Gran Cenote (Sak Aktun = white cave)
Grand Cenote is part of the Sak Aktun ("white cave" in Mayan) system of underground rivers whose current flows from deep inside the Yucatan peninsula. Grand Cenote is a large beautiful garden cenote with white sand beach type areas along with easily accessible caves for snorkeling.

This was a wonderful tour for our party of 16. We had a variety of ages ranging from 6 - 60 and he was able to enterain the entire group with his vast knowledge and wonderful stories. He arrived on time with a welcoming smile, clean vehicle, stocked with water and working air conditioner. He was very knowledgable about the Mayan culture and gave a great history lesson while traveling to COBA. The group loved the stories which made the drive more enjoyable. In addition they enjoyed the Grand Cenote.
