It covers the top highlights of the Yucatan Peninsula comfortably and is perfect when you visit Mexico for the first time and you want to know the Mayan World.
Departure from any hotel in Cancun and Riviera Maya (9:00 am approx). Tulum is the only place where you can find beachfront Mayan ruins. It was one of the last cities inhabited and built by the ancient Maya, and it even managed to survive for another 70 years after the Spanish began occupying Mexico. Due to its location on the cliffs of the Caribbean Coast, it used to be an important commercial and political center. Today it is one of the most popular Mayan sites to visit, certainly also because of its magnificent white-sandy beaches with the sublimely turquoise waters, rivaling the best of the Caribbean. At the archaeological site, don´t miss the “castle,” “the temple of the frescoes,” and “the house of the columns.” Let’s continue with a visit to Coba, one of the most important and oldest Mayan treasures in the region. The archaeological site contains many temples as well as a legendary ball game area. After a 1.5km walk, we arrive at the Nohoch Muul Pyramid (the tallest pyramid in the region) from the top of which you will enjoy a wonderful view of the sub-tropical jungle that surrounds Coba. Finally, you will be dropped off at your hotel in Merida.
