Coba & turtles adventure
Come and discover this Mayan treasure nestled in the lush jungle of the Yucatan Peninsula. Cobá is the nexus of the largest network of “sacbé” or stone roads of the ancient Maya civilization and recognized by its stelae, large engraved stones used to record significant events, by doing it, they left a whole cultural legacy behind. The highlight is the climbing of Nohoch Mul. This is the highest temple on the peninsula! When you climb this imposing building and take in the beautiful view from the top, you will be amazed! Truly a unique experience!
In our next stop, we are visiting the picturesque coastal community of Akumal, well known by its relaxed and natural atmosphere. Its warm waters are the perfect setting for turtles to have adopted this site as their home. The word Akumal in Maya means, “place of turtles.” Our experienced staff will guide you during this impressive swimming experience giving you the opportunity to see the turtles in their natural habitat.
Finally, we will take you to our exclusive hideaway on the beach to enjoy a delicious lunch and to relax in this idyllic place before going back to your hotel.
