Coba Mayan Ruins
In Mayan folklore the word Coba means ‘waters stirred by the wind’ which is an appropriate name for a settlement and its position between two large lagoons. If you visit this ancient historical site you will experience an unparalleled cultural encounter with an array of important artefacts, statues and structures set amidst traditional Mayan villages.
Exploring the ruins you will come across sites including the Conjunto de Pinturas Pyramids, Macanxoc Group Alters and the Sacbe white road trail. As you delve deeper into the Mayan settlement you will soon discover the centre features the most famous pyramid statue proudly standing at 140 feet tall. An ascension to the top provides a remarkable view of the surrounding landscape and scenery.
