Visiting the Riviera Maya means accessing an admirable world full of attractions and new experiences that you and your family won’t forget. One of the family activities in Riviera Maya is to visit the ruins of the Mayan City of Coba. These ruins, which in their heyday harbored more than 50,000 inhabitants, were built between 500 and 900 AD. It had several temples, among which the imposing pyramid of Nohoch Mul, 42 meters high, which you can climb and admire the majestic landscape.
Cobá allows you to discover its ruins with a bicycle that you can rent at the entrance. This a very popular option among the little ones who enjoy one of the best family activities in Riviera Maya.
