Discover the Nohoch Mul Temple

At roughly 138 feet tall, Nohoch Mul is the tallest Mayan pyramid on the Yucatan peninsula. It 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 Amazing Cenotes

After immersing yourself in history, your Mayan Cenote and Coba Private Tour will continue with a trip to swim in the cenotes. 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 the water receded from the Yucatan Peninsula, leaving behind a network of incredible cave formations that are full of beautiful rock structures.

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.
