Take our Coba ruins tour or an Ek Balam tour and make the most of your visit to Cancun or the Riviera Maya! A Coba tour will let you see one of the most extensive cities built by the ancient Mayan civilization and you can tour the ruins by bike if you wish.
Been there, done that, got a T-shirt on a Chichen Itza tour and looking for something different? A Coba or Ek Balam tour from Cancun will bring you to visit two Mayan ruins sites that may not be on your radar. Coba is located northwest of Tulum in the state of Quintana Roo, about two hours from Cancun. Ek Balam is in the nearby state of Yucatan, located 170 kms/105 miles from Cancun. On our Coba tours you'll be amazed by the views from atop the Nohoch Mul pyramid, one of the tallest in the Mayan world and climbing the Acropolis on an Ek Balam tour is an experience not to be missed.
We're pleased to bring you a fine selection of Coba and Ek Balam tours and excursions. Our Coba ruins tours from Cancun can be combined with visits to the Tulum Mayan ruins or the natural aquarium of Xel Ha Park. Adrenaline junkies won't want to miss the Coba Mayan Encounter which includes an exciting rappel into a cenote and ziplines over the jungle canopy! Our Ek Balam tour include a visit to the spectacular Cenote Maya, a natural limestone sinkhole perfect for a refreshing swim, rappel and a zipline with a water landing!
A day trip to Ek Balam or Coba is a BIG adventure! Our drivers will pick you up in the morning from Cancun or the Riviera Maya and we recommend you have a healthy breakfast for energy for the Coba excursion or Ek Balam tour. The heat of the sun can be intense, we recommend wearing light cotton clothes, wide-brimmed hats, sunglasses and lots of sunblock! Since both archaeological sites are set deep in the jungle, mosquito repellent is a very good idea. Bring your bathing suit and towel for the cenote swim, you won't want to miss the chance to refresh in the sacred waters of these natural pools!
One of the best things about our Coba tour is the fact that you can climb to the top of pyramid Nohoch Mul, which is the second tallest pyramid in the Yucatan Peninsula. The view from the top of this huge temple will take your breath away during any of our Coba ruins tours!
On the other hand, an Ek Balam tour, which is one of the ancient Mayan cities with the most ornate structures, is a must. In addition to touring this ancient city during our most popular Ek Balam tour, you will rappel into Cenote Maya where you can swim, dive and zipline.
