Tulum and Cobá are perhaps the only two archaeological sites which can hold a candle to Chichén Itzá, the former a paradise on the Caribbean coast and the latter hidden in the heart of the jungle.
Picking you up from your hotel we head south to Tulum, a Mayan city, approximately 700 years old.
Tulum is known for the beauty of its views, making it one of the most popular photo spots in the country. On this tour we'll dig a little deeper taking a closer look at its archaeological remains (including the Temple of The Descending God and the Temple of the Frescoes) all the while learning about its history and telling the stories which infuse the city. Then you'll have an hour and a half of free time to take a dip in the crystalline waters off Tulum.
Then we will begin the return journey to the hotels of Cancún, where we'll arrive around 2 pm.
In order to avoid the majority of the tourists, and the hottest hours of the day we will pick you up early in the morning and hit the road to the Cobá archaeological site, one of the major constructions, and oldest cities, of the ancient Mayan civilisation.
Later you can enjoy 20 minutes of free time for a refreshing swim in the Choo-Há cenote, or take a bike tour should you wish.
The tour finishes at your hotel around 4 pm.
The guide will pick you up at your hotel's designated excursion pick up zone, between 5:30 and 7:30 am depending on the location of your hotel. We'll send you the exact pick up time by email once the reservation has been made.
This trip includes hotel pick up at hotels on the Riviera Maya (Puerto Morelos, Playa del Carmen, Puerto Aventuras and Tulum). You can also reserve this tour leaving from Riviera Maya.
