We invite you to visit the two most remarkable cities of the Mayan culture within one tour. Enveloped by the jungle and surrounded by lagoons, Cobá was a major urban center that held economic sway over the Yucatan Peninsula through complex routes and alliances with more than 52000 inhabitants in its glory days. The ancient city’s monumental buildings, its amazing network of roads, its stelae and hieroglyphic texts are only some of the distinctive traits of this special Mayan city. Its specialty is that here is the highest pyramid of the Yucatan Peninsula and the only one in the area that can still be climbed. After climbing up the 130 stairs we will have an exceptional panorama to the jungle. After seeing the most important sights of the Coba ruins we continue our journey to the other Mayan ruins in Tulum. Tulum was built late in the thirteenth century, during what is known as the Mayan post-classic period and was the first Mayan city discovered by the Spanish conquerors in the 16th Century. This is the only walled Mayan city known to exist on the seashore. Renowned for its millenary frescos and unique buildings, this mysterious city was a major port-of-call along the Mayan maritime trade routes. After visiting the most remarkable relics, you have the opportunity to swim in the beautiful azure blue beach right at the foot of the ruin of „El Castillo” which is perched on the edge of a 12-metre limestone cliff overlooking to the sea. During our tour we enjoy a traditional lunch at a local restaurant and we return back to our hotel in the afternoon.

Its most popular attraction is its nature reserve and lagoon, where we go on a boat trip to see it’s beautiful wildlife including flamingos, eagles, herons, geese, pelicans, frigate birds, and last but not least, crocodiles. Along our boat trip we will stop at a lagoon called Las Coloradas which is home to Mexico’s second largest salt factory since salt is extracted from the seawater there.

We recommend this program to everyone who are not only interested in culture and history, but in the beauties of nature, as well and are eager to spend a wonderful day in this special area of the Yucatan Peninsula.
