Coba and Punta Laguna
Coba In the Maya language means “water stirred by wind” and it is surrounded by a dense jungle.
You will climb the pyramid of Nohoch Mul, more than 130 feet high,
Nohuch Mul, which means “large mound” in the Mayan language, is the tallest pyramid at Coba archaeological site and on the Yucatán Peninsula.
The Maya culture flourished here between 400 and 1100 A.D.
Two small lakes nearby made it a desirable location for the Mayans.
As you explore the site, wandering the pleasantly shady trails beneath the jungle canopy, keep your eyes and ears open for wildlife. You'll surely spot some interesting tropical birds and howler monkeys.
Punta Laguna is a nature reserve with a spider monkey sanctuary. Our canoe tour is though a beautiful and relaxing lake in the middle of the jungle where you will observe the interesting vegetation and wildlife, and then you can fly though the top of the trees on a Zip-Line.
