COBA PRIVATE EXPRESS TOUR
Exclusive Online Discount!
After complimentary pick up at your Playa del Carmen hotel, you'll travel in air-conditioned comfort non-stop to the impressive Coba Mayan Ruins. Here, you can explore this once-mighty empire, and even climb the great pyramid, giving you awesome views over the Mayan jungle below. The ruins are large and spread out, so there are bicycles and pedicabs (rickshaws) for rent at the gate, and expert trained guides available for hire at the entrance to give you incredible insight about the Mayans of Coba, and help you enjoy your visit to the ruins even more.
After your visit, we'll take you directly back to your hotel (or the ferry pier if you prefer). For Calica guests, we can drop you just outside the cruise pier and you can walk inside. This is a great way to make the most of your time in Playa del Carmen. These trips are fully customizable, so you can stop for shopping or lunch if you like, or add extra hours to see even more.
When: Daily on Your Schedule.
Where: Pick-up and drop-off at your Playa del Carmen or Riviera Maya Hotel. For cruise passengers, we pick up in downtown Playa del Carmen at the ferry pier. There is an additional charge for pickup at hotels north of Playa del Carmen, because we have to drive the opposite direction to pick you up and double-back.
How Long: Approximately 6 Hours. You don't have to stay the full 6 hours if you are pressed for time. We'll get you back in time. Additional Hours are also available if you have more time. Coba is approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes from Playa del Carmen.
Additional Hours: $50.00 per hour.
IMPORTANT: Due to maintenance at Coba, climbing the Pyramid is not allowed.
Entrance Fee: $6.00 Adults and Kids
A private guide can be hired at the ruins entrance gate for about $30.00 USD. Your driver will show you where to go. This fee is for your whole group to have your own private guide for a 45-minute tour. You also have the option of just exploring on your own without a guide.
You can hire a pedicab to take you around the ruins site for $10 (a great idea for those with limited mobility) or you can rent a bicycle for $3.50.
If you plan to use a video camera inside Coba, you will need to pay a $3.50 USD government video tax.
Kids: All ages welcome. Kids same price as adults. This tour is priced per person. If you are 8 adults and 1 kid in the vehicle, choose the 9-People van.
Cruise Passengers: Yes! This tour is great for a shore excursion.
