Mexico Off The Beaten Path: 212 reviews and 213 photos
Visit the Coba Ruins, - 'The City of Ghosts''. One of the truly great Classic Maya sites. Approximately 50 square kilometers in size and over 6000 ruins , only a few of which have been restored. Walking trips, either with tours guides or alone is extremely easy - and safe.
Stay at the Hotel Bocadito in downtown Coba (~800 inhabitants) and try their Cochinita Pibil. The hotel is about $10.00 a night, a twin bed, cold water shower - nothing fancy.
I've been here about 10 times in the past 8 years. I'm getting pretty good at knowing this place and know many of the local people quite well. I'm no longer a 'gringo' but an 'amigo'. The people love talking with you. Its nice to learn some of the Maya language.
