Visit the only Mayan city which can compare to Chichén Itzá: Cobá. We'll reveal all the secrets of this historic place and you'll be able to refresh yourself in the Xel-Há natural park.
Day 1: Cobá
We'll pick you up from your hotel and hit the road in an air-conditioned vehicle on the way to Mayan culture's second city: Cobá. We'll explore this jewel of the Yucatán as the first lights of morning hit the pyramids, creating a unique, almost mystical atmosphere.
Accompanied by a professional archaeologist we'll see the main attractions Cobá has to offer, highlighting the astronomical observatory and the Nohoch Mul pyramid. And if you would like a panoramic view of the Mayan city, you can climb to the top of the pyramid itself to take some fantastic photographs.
During the tour, we'll reveal the meaning of the name Cobá and learn the differences and similarities between this Mayan city and the famous Chichén Itzá. Before heading back to the hotels of Cancún, we'll visit the Cobá Stele, a commemorative stone monument, which according to local legend bears the date of the end of the world.
Day 2: Xel-Há
Picking you up from your hotel in Cancún we'll make our way along the southern Caribbean coast, arriving at the famous Xel-Há park, enjoying the stunning landscapes of the Yucatán peninsula.
To combat the heat we'll refresh ourselves in the swimming pools and natural caves: in this ecological space you'll find underground tunnels, zip lines, and attractions for the little ones. You're sure to love it!
