What To Expect

Begin your tour with afternoon pickup at your hotel in Playa del Carmen and begin a short and scenic journey to Coba, an ancient Mayan archaeological site surrounded by dense jungle. On arrival at the site, you’ll climb onto a bike and cycle past beautiful lagoons and temples shrouded in legends dating back to the Mayan legacy.

Following your guided tour, you’ll decide whether to delve into Mayan culture or satisfy your appetite for adventure. If you choose the former, visit a Mayan village to make pottery and classic Mexican dishes such as tortillas.

Those that have opted to adventure will experience an exhilarating zipline ride followed by a swim in a cenote. Reconvene with the rest of your group after your activities and enjoy a buffet lunch inspired by Mexican specialties. If you have upgraded, you’ll enjoy fresh lobster and a range of delicious accompaniments while watching a Mayan show.

Your tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel in Playa del Carmen.

This was not the tour that I asked for, somewhat upsat and disappointed.
Matt_S, Dec 2023
The tour was not what I was sold. I bought the Coba sunset tour witht the Mayan popular vu show and lobster dinner. There was no show and no dinner, and the tour was over an hour before sunset and we had very little actual time at coba versus what I paid for which was very disappointing for my family who had never seen the pyramids before. The tour was good but it was not what I wanted and I would like some refund

Coba ruins must see, but there are some drawback
Farid_M, Dec 2021
Our guide Greg is did a good job. However, this tour had 2 major disappointment. First, if you are taking this tour from Cancun, the you should know that it will take 3 to 4 hours to get to Coba. You are not told this when you sign up. We had to drive to pick people from Playa Del Carmen then from Tulum. Second, climbing to Coba is not allowed due to pandemic for the last 2 years. It is not advertised in the tour that you will be able to climb, but photos of tour with people climbing on the top are deceiving. Overall, cultural part was average as well, so in my opinion. It is definitely not worthy the price for the tour.

We loved seeing Coba and being able to climb the temple. We also enjoyed the biking part. Be aware that if you can't ride a bicycle then you can pay a little extra and ride on a trike that is pedaled for you and can seat two people at the front. My daughter and I did this because she forgot how to ride a bicycle. That ended up being our favorite part of the day. We had a blast. The man who pedaled the trike told us about the ruins and the breeze felt great. We loved that our tour guide was a Mayan who lived near the ruins. He was very knowledgeable and spoke Mayan, Spanish, and English very well. The transport was in a nice air-conditioned van/bus and the tour guide told us about the Coba ruins and the Mayan culture. This made the trip enjoyable. We chose the cultural experience, and I am on the fence about whether that was the best option. We knew we did not want to zipline, but the cenote sounded wonderful. The Mayan village was interesting, but the pottery making was not fun. We were given only a pingpong sized amount of clay, and were very hurried. Another group came in as we were finishing. Our guide did point out plants used for medicinal purposes, which was interesting. The head of the family whose home we visited showed us his Mayan bee hives which were also very interesting. A lady prepared hand made tortillas with pumpkin seed spread and they tasted great. All in all the cultural excursion portion of the tour was just ok. The dinner and show were great, very interesting and entertaining. We had ordered the lobster upgrade which was delicious but there was a delay in getting the lobster and we weren't told that it would be a big plate of food. If we had known that then we would not have gotten food from the buffet. We ended up looking like gluttons with two plates of food each. Be sure to take plenty of cash and some small bills because there are many opportunities to tip trike driver, cultural tour guide, family whose home was open to us, performers at the dinner show, driver, and main tour guide. There are also excellent shopping opportunities in the Mayan home and in the Mayan shops next to the dinner venue. Also, I'm not sure why this is called a sunset tour because you don't see the sunset at the ruins. The sun sat while we were at the dinner venue. All in all I am glad that we went. It was a really good excursion. I might have rated it a 5 had we chosen the extreme experience.

I loved this tour. It was a small group only 10 of us and that made it much more personal than some of the larger tours I took on my trip. Jesus was a great tour guide. He works incredibly hard to ensure everyone has an enjoyable trip. Luis drove the van and safely got us to and from Coba. It's hard to pick one favorite moment from the trip. Climbing the ruins, biking through the jungle, ziplining over a lake that had crocodiles in it, and visiting a Mayan village were all experiences that I'll never forget. The dinner and the show were a huge bonus. The food was great especially the pork. I highly recommend this tour!

This experience was great! Had a couple of issues with the wrong dinner option but other than that the tour was great.
