Coba - Ancient Mayan Mystery

by Andre Gunther

Coba (GPS: 2029.450 N 8743.986 W) was a major center of the Mayan empire. The city is as mystical as it is beautiful. It is located deep in the jungle near a series of lakes where Spider Monkeys can be found. Parts of the city are still being excavated. If you arrive early in the morning, you can beat the crowds, which are not nearly as bad as in Chichen Itza, and feel like an explorer who just discovered one of the greatest secrets of ancient times. Locals are very friendly and the admission fee is not worth mentioning. The commercialization of the area won't stop at Coba, so while you are staying in Cancun or any other place nearby, we urge you to take the trip to Coba. You will not regret it. If you come to visit early in the morning, you will be able to pay a visit to fabulous Punta Laguna and its population of Spider Monkeys. [ more ]
