Maya Ruins and Swimming
Tulum (Maya: Too Loom - Walled City)
Tulum was a walled city, protected on one side by steep cliffs facing the sea and on the other by a wall of about 12 feet in height. Tulum served as a trading port. The ancient Maya name was ZAMA=City of Dawn or City of the Morning Star.
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.

Our tour was the highlight of our trip! I'm well-traveled but taking a tour of this kind was a new experience for me, so I had a lot of questions before I even left -- Volker was courteous and very helpful in the planning process. The day of the tour, he was so helpful in calling out the highlights that were worth seeing and very knowledgeable when we asked for more info. Next time I'm in Mexico, I won't even research.... I'll just book with Volker again.
