Key Information

Description

Delve into the incredible history of the Yucatan Peninsula at the archaeological attractions of Tulum and Coba — two of the most remarkable ancient Mayan towns in Mexico. On this full-day guided tour, you’ll follow a local guide through historic ruins, swim in the spectacular limestone sinkhole Cenote Mariposa, and experience Mayan culture with an introduction to traditions around honey and cocoa. After a hassle-free hotel pickup, your first stop is at the picturesque trails of Tulum, perched high above the crashing waves of the Caribbean. This ancient site boasts well-preserved Mayan architecture, including a massive pyramid and the Temple of the Frescoes, which was used as a solar observatory. After visiting the Tulum Ruins, you’ll rest awhile at a pristine beach to enjoy some time in the sun and the lapping of ocean waves on the shore. Next, you’ll continue to the Canamayte complex, where a local shaman will welcome you with a traditional ceremony of purification. Then, take a dip in Cenote Mariposa: an incredible natural reservoir characteristic of Yucatan, with gorgeous clear turquoise waters welling up to fill a natural limestone sinkhole. After cooling off, your next call is a demonstration of Mayan traditions around authentic Yucatan honey and cocoa. Then fuel the next part of your journey with an a-la-carte lunch, before exploring the extensive archaeological site of Coba!
