Coba (Maya: Cob Ha - muddy water)
The Maya name was Cob Ha and means muddy water, named after the muddy lagoons close to the site. Coba is the largest and oldest Mayan Ruin site in the Yucatan, with an estimated 6,500 structures dating back to 200 B.C.  Coba has the highest pyramid in the Mayan world, at nearly 140 feet ( 42 m ) high, with 120 steps to the top, giving you a fantastic view over the jungle. Coba is estimated to have had significantly more than 50,000 inhabitants at its peak of civilization, and the built up area extends over some 80 km². The site was occupied by a sizable agricultural population by the 1st century. A series of elevated stone and plaster roads radiate from the central site to various smaller Maya sites near and far. These are known by the Maya term sacbe. Some of these sacbes go east to the Caribbean coast, and the longest runs over 100 kilometres (62 mi) westwards to the site of Yaxuna and connects from there to Chichen Itza. Your expert tour guide will share the wonders and history of the Mayan civilization with you, as you gaze in awe at how advanced these people were thousands of years ago.



Enjoy a delicious lunch Maya style in a beautiful restaurant with an amazing view over the lagoon of Coba. At the buffet you can choose from the salad bar, fish and between Maya specialities like Cochinita Pibil or Pollo Pibil, accompanied by rice or tortillas.

punta laguna spider-monkey 2Punta Laguna (animal reserve)
Punta Laguna is part of a 5,000 hectar, government-protected nature reserve called Ma'ax Yetel Kooh, which is Mayan for "House of the spider monkey and the puma" In addition to the unique subspecies of spider monkey that inhabits the area, the preserve is also home to howler monkeys, pumas, coatis, jaguars and a variety of birds.The name comes from the ability to use its prehensile tail to hang from trees. The Howler monkey can swell his larynx to form a natural amplifier, allowing its cry to be heard as far as 10 km (5 – 6 miles) Group size is limited to 10 people so as not to frighten animals and to minimize the disturbance to their habitat. Not only are the guides knowledgeable as natives, but a research team of primatologists has provided them with more specific training regarding the wildlife. As you head into the jungle, you are actually hiking on a prehispanic platform (sacbe) that is often obscured by vegetation. Despite the thick jungle growth, there are several spots where temples and the tops of pyramids can be clearly seen. Most of the ruins are from the late classic to post-classic periods, around 700 to 1000 A.D., and are in the same condition like Chichén-Itzá and Uxmal when they were .
