Coba and Xel-Há Tour

Approach the Mayan legacy at Cobá and the Hidden Wonder of Xel-Há

At the Cobá - Xel-Há Tour you will have culture, sun, and the ocean breeze on one day. Get into the fascinating Mayan legacy that lies among the Cobá remains, and refresh yourself in the beautiful inlet at the Hidden Wonder of the Riviera Maya.

On your way to Cobá, Mexico, you will have a delicious onboard breakfast while you enjoy a ride on a panoramic bus. At your arrival to the archaeological zone, you can ride a bike through one of the roads built by the ancient Mayans hundreds of years ago, even before the Chichén Itzá foundation. Climb atop Nohoch Muul, which is the tallest pyramid in the Riviera Maya, about the height of a 10-story building.

Your next stop is at Xel-Há Park where you can rest on an inner tube along a river that flows into the large cove. Climb the Scenic Lighthouse at 131 ft (40 m) tall to enjoy the viewpoint on the top, to then descend full speed through one of its waterslides. At Xel-Há
