Option #1 – Cobá $95 USD

Visit Cobá and discover the amazing Nohoch Mul, the tallest temple in the Yucatan Peninsula. From the top you will have stunning views of the jungle.
Cobá was a large city of the Pre-Columbian Maya civilization, estimated to have had some 50,000 inhabitants at its peak with the built up area extending over 80 km². The bulk of Cobá’s major construction seems to have been made in the middle and late Classic period, about 500 to 900, with most of the dated hieroglyphic inscriptions from the 7th century. Cobá remained an important site in the Post-Classic era and new temples were built and old ones kept in repair until at least the 14th century, possibly as late as the arrival of the Spanish.

Option #2 – Cobá & Tulum $105 USD

See the description for Option #1 for information on Cobá. After Cobá, explore Tulum, another impressive archaeological site set on a cliff overlooking the Caribbean Sea.
Each Mayan city had a specific purpose. Tulum was a seaport, trading mainly in turquoise and jade. In addition to being the only Mayan city built by the sea, Tulum was one of the few protected by a wall. Made of limestone, the 784-metre wall encloses the site on three sides, is seven metres thick and 3 – 5 metres high.
