Tulum (Maya: Too Loom - Walled City)

Tulum was a walled city, protected on one side by steep cliffs facing the sea and on the other by a wall of about 12 feet in height. Tulum served as a trading port. The ancient Maya name was ZAMA=City of Dawn or City of the Morning Star. The buildings that are visible on the site date from the Post-Classic period, around 1200 to 1500 A.D., and the city of Tulum was functioning at the time of the arrival of the Spaniards. it was at its height between the 13th and 15th centuries and managed to survive about 70 years after the Spanish began occupying Mexico

Coba

The Maya name was Cob Ha and means muddy water, named after the muddy lagoons close to the site. Coba is the largest and oldest Mayan Ruin site in the Yucatan, with an estimated 6,500 structures dating back to 200 B.C.  Coba has the highest pyramid in the Mayan world, at nearly 140 feet ( 42 m ) high, with 120 steps to the top, giving you a fantastic view over the jungle. Coba is estimated to have had significantly more than 50,000 inhabitants at its peak of civilization, and the built up area extends over some 80 km². The site was occupied by a sizable agricultural population by the 1st century. A series of elevated stone and plaster roads radiate from the central site to various smaller Maya sites near and far. These are known by the Maya term sacbe. Some of these sacbes go east to the Caribbean coast, and the longest runs over 100 kilometers (62 mi) westwards to the site of Yaxuna and connects from there to Chichen Itza. Your expert tour guide will share the wonders and history of the Mayan civilization with you, as you gaze in awe at how advanced these people were thousands of years ago.
