We went to Coba

Here you see Frans earlie in the morning. We had an excursion to Coba, one of the oldest ruins found in Mexico and not all explored. We made the booking of this excursion a week before we would go...and guess what ! This was the only day it rained so hard, we could see the road!

This was our guide Miguel

We had some starting problems. Beside the terrible rain we also had a problem finding the guide. He should be in Tulum but on our way up there he called us on his cell phone and he told us he was in Playa del Carmen. We had to drive 30 minutes back to fetch him up.

One of the things we would see this day

Coba was one of the things we would visit this day. As i told you Coba isnt found that long ago. Its in the middle of the jungle and driving there (about 3 hours from our hotel) leaves nothign else to see then jungle ! Other things this day were meeting Maya's, eating the Maya way and swimm in a Cenote.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Wonderful to see one of the oldest things on earth
  • Cons:Expensive and a long drive through the jungle
  • In a nutshell:Explore Mexico by yourself and see more then just Coba

    leave the guide in his hut..tip him and thank him/her for the preservation of a disappearing culture..help Mexico preserve the true Maya...Bishop Landa didn't burn all the codices..

    Wow, Yvette! This page is again a masterpiece! Het heeft even geduurd, maar nu heb ik iets meer tijd om ook achterstallige bezoekjes aan andere pagina's te brengen. Which is just like travelling on www! Groetjes, Paul

    Interesante page Yvette. De mensen hier vragen altijd geld aan toeristen hoor. Zelfs al zijn ze niet arm. De gedachtengang is van: Nee heb je en ja kan je krijgen ;-)
