Departure Point

Traveler pickup is offered
Pick up will be at all Hotels and vacation rentals accommodation of Riviera Maya area includes and only Cancun area have a little charge. We give you pick up time after your confirmation book.

Start your small-group tour of Coba and Tulum with pickup from your Playa del Carmen or Riviera Maya hotel. Get comfortable in your air-conditioned minivan for the drive to each archaeological site. A buffet lunch and beverages are provided during the day.

Coba is your first stop, with a tour of the preserved and rebuilt ruins. At its peak, Coba had a population of about 50,000 inhabitants and an area of 80 square miles (129 sq km). Walk past two ball courts and see the sacbé, or white roads, that once linked Maya cities. If you'd like, climb the 120 steep steps up Nohoch Mul—the tallest pyramid on the Yucatán Peninsula—and be rewarded with views of the dense jungle from the top.

Then head down to Cho Ha Cenote for a spectacular swim in the emerald waters of this sinkhole. Highlights include limestone stalactites formed over centuries. 

From there, drive to Tulum, the only archaeological site built on the Caribbean coast. Once a thriving seaport, it housed Maya nobility and merchants within its walls. Meander the groomed paths with your guide who points out noteworthy structures such as a restored temple whose murals reveal ancient red pigments. Learn about the Spanish conquest of the city during your walk around.

The final stop on your full-day tour is Playa Paraiso (Paradise Beach), one of the most visited beaches of the Riviera Maya. Relax under a palm tree and soak up the last hours of sun or swim in the turquoise sea, with a prime view of the ruins above.

Your tour concludes with transport back to your hotel in Playa del Carmen or the Riviera Maya.

Due to unexpected hotel issues. I needed to reschedule my trip. This company was not helpful at all and basically kept all the money for themselves. They did not offer any compensation, credit, or refund. Seems like the tour company wants money.

Ulysses was fantastic. Our 9 year old son loved how much Ulysses taught is about the Mayans. He was so informative and friendly. This is a great tour and the ruins are amazing. The cenote was also a wonderful part of the adventure. If you like to learn about history and want a wonderful tour guide then I would recommend this tour.

What a jam packed fun filled day!! Ulysses was the BEST tour guide- he was so knowledgeable. I definitely learned a lot but also had so much fun. Wear comfortable walking shoes. We opted to wear our bathing suits and bring a change of clothes because it was back and forth between ruins/swimming activities. We saw the Tulum ruins first, then visited the beach, then headed to Cobá for lunch and more ruins and last stopped at the cenote. This was great because of the heat it was nice to have breaks to swim, and we dried off quickly for the next activities. At the Cobá ruins, you can rent bikes inexpensively during your free time. Bring pesos for that. That was probably my favorite part of the whole excursion - riding bikes through the jungle. It was beautiful. You don’t get a ton of time at each location but we wanted to see a lot in a day and we got exactly what we asked for! Thank you to Ulysses and our driver for a great day!

Since we got picked up the tour guides were amazingly nice. We had so much fun learning the history and taking wonderful pictures with the most beautiful views in Tulum. When it was lunch time, the place they took us was really delicious. When we went to coba we rented bicycles to go around and it was fun, plus you exercise. Last but not least the cenotes is the most beautiful water you’ll ever swim in. My fiancé and I enjoyed swimming in the clear water freely. You won’t be disappointed if you book this tour.

Ulysses was very knowledgeable and shared a lot of information that enhanced our experience. The tour also provided ample time to explore the various sites and take lots of pictures. We were also pleased with our driver Javier. He got us to every destination safely and efficiently. The food served at lunch was delicious.

Ulysses our guide and Javier our driver were great. After we were picked up from our resort the first stop was Tulum. Ulysses shared a lot about Mayan culture and we got to see some breathtaking views. Next we went to the beach for about an hour. Pretty area but you had to either swim or stay in the bar area as it’s shared by some private companies. In our opinion, we could have done without the beach stop. Next to Coba for lunch and a little shopping. Lunch was very good and we were able to try several local things. Then off to the Coba ruins. Highly recommend wearing good walking shoes/tennis shoes. We walked for a bit then almost everyone in our group rented the bicycles; very well worth the 60peso rental. Our final stop was the cenote. This was our favorite stop. A well needed cool down. I highly recommend bringing along your water shoes. We didn’t know that it’d be in a cave—so very cool. They kept our group small (8 people) so we felt safe and included all day. Also, if you bring a backpack to keep your extra shoes, clothing, and towels in the driver always stayed with the van.

The Coba Ruins, Cho Ha Cenote, Tulum and Paradise Beach Day Trip with Lunch Included tour by Mayan Riviera Tours was great. Ulises was our tour guide and Javier was our driver. It was $89.90 pp via Viator and the same tour (Mayan Tour: Cobá – Cenote Cho Ha – Tulum – Playa Paraiso) cost $100 pp via the Mayan Riviera Tours website so I bought it thru Viator. My husband and I were in Cancun so we had to pay an additional $15 per person for the extra transportation charge. We were picked up at 6:30 AM. We made three more stops to pick up the other 10 people. There were 12 seats in the van and all were full. We got back to our Hyatt Cancun Zilara resort at 6:45 PM. It was a long, hot and sweaty day, but a lot of fun. Our first stop was Tulum. Then we went to the beach that you can see when you are behind the highest temple at Tulum and look to the right where a bunch of small boats are. We stayed at that beach for about an hour. There was seaweed in the water but it felt very good. If you want fresh showers after getting in the ocean, you have to pay. None of our group paid. We just stayed salty and stinky for the rest of the day. Our next stop was a tasty buffet lunch. We ordered one beer and one bottle of water and the charge was 90 pesos. If you want to buy souvenirs, this is the place to do it since this is the only time you’ll have time to do it. There was a large gift shop on the first floor of the restaurant. After lunch we went to Coba. When you are at Coba, you can walk the two or 3 km each way to the main pyramid, which is currently closed to climbing due to Covid, or you can rent individual bikes for 60 pesos or a pedicab that will hold two people for 140 pesos. Everyone in our group rented the pedicabs and were extremely happy for it! Please remember to tip your driver. After Coba we went to the Choo Ha cenote. Just like at the other cenote we had visited in November, you must shower prior to getting into it so that your bug spray and sunscreen don’t kill the fish. (Liquid soap was provided.) To access the cenote you walk down two flights of wooden stairs. Once you get down to the cenote there is a natural rock ledge for you to place your belongings, like your shoes, towel and glasses, but leave everything else in the (unlocked, guarded and with the door open for easy access) van because there’s not a lot of room. The cenote is very cold, just like another we’ve been to so my husband and I only went in to our knees but others in our group jumped in, dove in, swam around and enjoyed it. We were at the cenote for an hour. If you want to rent life vests you can but I didn’t see anything else to spend money on, even beverages, but I might just not have noticed. The van was spotless when we were picked up in the morning, but by the end of the day was very sandy and dirty. A large cooler with ice and 330ml bottles of water was at the sliding door for easy access by all. Since we were staying at an all-inclusive, we had been hoarding water, sodas and beer and brought those cold beverages in a laundry bag and dumped them in the cooler for others to enjoy. I definitely suggest that you bring additional beverages if you want, even a large bottle of water since the small ones are quite tiny on a hot and humid day. This was the second tour we took with Mayan Riviera Tours. In November, 2020 we went to Chichen Itza and Ek Balam and were fortunate to have Ulises and Javier then, too.

Amazing tour with a small group! Ulysses was very knowledgeable and gave us plenty of free time to roam around the sites for pictures. The cenote at the end was a great way to cool off! Definitely recommend this tour!
