Coba and Punta Laguna
Just 44 Kilometers from Tulum, in the vicinity of the village of the same name you will visit the beautiful ruins of Cobá. Be prepared to climb the 120 steps of Nohoch Muul’s pyramid.
In the Maya language Cobá means “waters stirred by the wind”, an appropriate Mayan name as this settlement is surrounded by two large lagoons. For many years Coba was an ignored piece of Mayan history due to its location. Located between Tulum in the state of Quintana Roo, and Valladolid in the state of Yucatán, archeologists first learned about the site in the mid 1800′s.
Less than a 15-minute drive from Cobá Punta Laguna Nature Reserve offers one of the most unique sightseeing attractions of the Yucatán Península: spider monkeys. The creatures are a top draw for the reserve, which also showcases jaguars, pumas, howler monkeys and dozens of bird species.
