Tulum Ruins

Tulum (Maya: Too Loom - Walled City)

Tulum was a walled city, protected on one side by steep cliffs facing the sea and on the other by a wall of about 12 feet in height. Tulum served as a trading port. The ancient Maya name was ZAMA=City of Dawn or City of the Morning Star. The buildings that are visible on the site date from the Post-Classic period, around 1200 to 1500 A.D., and the city of Tulum was functioning at the time of the arrival of the Spaniards.

 

coba 09Coba (Maya: Cob Ha - muddy water)
The Maya name was Cob Ha which 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. 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 kilometers (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.

 

coba-restaurantLunch

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 specialties, like Cochinita Pibil or Pollo Pibil, accompanied by rice or tortillas. 1 soda is included.

 

cenoteCenote 
The Cenotes are part of the Sak Aktun ("white cave" in Mayan) system of underground rivers whose current flows from deep inside the Yucatan peninsula. After the visit to Tulum and Coba you can refresh yourself with a swim in a beautiful cenote with crystal clear water.

 

Or alternatively, instead of the cenote, a visit to a Mayan family deep in the jungle!!!

 

MayafamilieMaya Family

Visit the family in the house, learn how they make their tortillas and how they live, and go about their life in the jungle. After lunch, you'll drive to a Mayan village deep in the jungle to visit a Mayan family at their home. They will show you how they live in the jungle, their medicinal garden, and their beehives. You can make tortillas with them and eat the tortilla you just made with some scrambled eggs and chaya (Maya spinach).

The family produces also some handicrafts, like blouses or the typical Mayan dresses Huypil) for children with beautiful embroidery. When the spider monkeys that live all around there in the jungle eat their fruit, they throw down the seeds, and the Mayans pick them up and make beautiful jewelry, key chains ad other souvenirs from them. 
The family also produces honey with the stingless Maya bee Melipona, which produces honey with high medicinal value. The family also sells handicrafts that they make themselves, such as blouses and the typical Mayan dresses for children with beautiful Mayan embroidery. Also jewelry, some made with seeds from fruits that die spider monkeys throw from the tree.
The family wants you to know that nobody should feel obligated to buy their handicrafts, everybody is welcome to visit and they will gladly show their way of life in the jungle!!
