Visit the Mayan Ruins of Coba to climb the pyramid and spend time exploring the jungles and cenotes of the Riviera Maya Chichen Itza and Tulum are both more popular ruins, but if you are interested in a little more adventure, consider making the trek to Coba. The ruins at Coba are not completely restored giving it the ruins a unique vibe when exploring. And the ability to hike up the 130-foot pyramid, the largest Mayan Pyramid in the Mexican Mayan World is something you can't do at Tulum or Chichen Itza. Coba is located deep inside the jungle, over an hour and a half from Playa del Carmen, and really only accessible by car or tour. This means visitors either join an adventure tour, hire a driver or rent a car. This tour guides you with a rental car. The tour also includes a stop at Punta Laguna to see monkeys and a refreshing swim in one of the many Mayan cenotes.
