Private Deluxe Cobá and Tulum Tour

Please inquire

Discover the most important Mayan Archaeological Sites of northern Quintana Roo, State – Cobá and Tulum.

Explore the region safely in your own private expedition while having fun and learning about the local culture past and present – you may be surprised to find out that the local people of Cobá still speak the native Mayan Language!  Even at first glance, the impressive structures at Cobá speak to the grandeur of the civilization that produced them ages ago. Interestingly, today very little is known about this largest and most important Mayan city in this region during its apex, known as the Classical period; your expert guide will discuss the different theories that seek to explain the different temples, ball courts, structures and other salient features. Tulum’s pre‐hispanic name was Zama, which means “dawn”; most archeologists believe this is due to Tulum’s geographic location, perched on a cliff looking eastwards upon the Caribbean Sea, allowing for a full appreciation of the sunrise.

The Deluxe tour offers luxury Vehicles, a la carte lunch, all entrance fees, snacks, cold scented towels, Certified Guide + Driver and more flexibility.


You will be picked up in your hotel lobby by your expert guide and privately transferred in a deluxe vehicle to Cobá (1.5 hours). Upon arrival and before entering the site your guide will explain the historical importance of Cobá. Due to the sheer size of this site you will be given the choice to visit Coba by bicycle under your own or if you prefer, by tricycle that will be driven by one of the local people.

After the visit we will continue to some of the best kept secrets of the area – the secluded underground Cenotes. Cenotes are underground sink holes that form along a river network and can be accessed through tunnels, caves, and other geological openings into the mysterious and beautiful subterranean world. The Cenotes you will visit are only a few minutes away from the Cobá, but are considered some of the most beautiful in the whole Peninsula and perfect for a refreshing swim after exploring in the tropical climate.

Once you have enjoyed the refreshing waters you will continue on to a well deserved lunch at the nearby lake of Cobá before returning to the coast and the hallowed grounds of Tulum (:30 mins). 

After your expertly guided visit you may opt to take a refreshing swim into the turquoise Caribbean sea (weather and sea conditions permitting). You then return to your Hotel
(1:00 – 2:00 hrs depending on hotel location).
