I prefer the dry season from December to April to escape the European winter and to have fewer mosquitos, less humidity and heat. Best month April, already fewer crowds in Yucatan.
Less crowded early morning before busses arrive.
Opening hours are from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. Gets crowded before midday.
Coba is an ancient Mayan city deep in the Yucatan jungle. It consists of a large complex of ruins. Still not as popular as Chichen Itza. One of the main attractions for visitors is it is still open for the public to climb 130 steps to the top with a spectacular view. It is one of the tallest pyramides in Yucatan.
It is possible to rent a bike or to hire a guide. We preferred to walk independent with a map of the area. Bring insect repellent!
We combined Coba and Tulum in one day.
