Experience Mexico’s history like never before on a cultural tour that takes you to some of the most archaeologically significant and well-preserved ruins in the Mayan Empire. Our Mayan Cenote and Coba Private Tour lets you and your group run your hands over ancient wonders and walk up spectacular pyramids before you take the plunge into Cancun’s famous cenotes for a guided snorkeling session. The underground tunnels you’ll visit are home to some of the most fascinating marine life in all of Mexico!
Climb the Nohoch Mul Pyramids
At roughly 138 feet tall, Ixmoja is the tallest Mayan pyramid on the Yucatan peninsula, and climbing to the top of the pyramid’s 120 steps will be the highlight of your private Coba tour. The view from the top is frequently described as breathtaking and awe-inspiring. Ixmoja was the primary temple of this pre-Columbian city, and standing on the same stone platforms where Mayan priests once practiced their rituals is a once in a lifetime experience you’ll remember forever. Throughout your Mayan Cenote and Coba Private Tour, our knowledgeable bilingual guides will answer all of your questions about what life was like when the Mayan civilization was in its heyday.
Walk the Cobá-Yaxuná Causeway
The ancient city of Coba - which is more than 1,000 years old - is where the largest network of stone causeways in the Mayan world meet. You and your group will also have the opportunity to meander through the site, exploring the grand Cobá-Yaxuná causeway and other ceremonial roads, a Mayan ball court, buildings, and Grupo Cobá, one of the site’s other pyramids. Another intriguing feature of the site that you’ll discover are the stelae - upright stone sculptures that stand as a record of the history of the Mesoamerican civilization. The engravings on these stones were used to record changes in population, document ceremonial life and serve as a record of import events in the Mayan world.
Swim Cancun’s Famous Cenotes
After immersing yourself in history, your Mayan Cenote and Coba Private Tour will continue with a trip to snorkel in the cenotes that are just minutes away from Coba. The refreshing waters in these cenotes are some of the clearest and most beautiful in all of Mexico. These underground pools were formed millions of years ago when water receded from the Yucatan Peninsula, leaving behind a network of incredible cave formations that are full of beautiful rock structures and home to all kinds of interesting marine animals that have adapted perfectly to life underground.
Mayan Cenote and Coba Private Tour Tips
This is a wonderful tour for families who are comfortable with moderate levels of activity. Sturdy walking shoes are a must, and you may find you’re more comfortable in the Yucatan sun if you bring a hat with a brim. You’ll be wearing a life vest as you explore the cenotes but it’s still important that everyone in your group has mastered basic swimming skills. Don’t worry if you’ve never snorkeled before! Our guides will explain everything you need to know to comfortably breathe underwater using one of the snorkels and masks we provide.
