Chichen Itza (in the mouth of the Itza spring)

Chichen Itza is located about 400 km west of Cancun and is probably the most famous Mayan ruin city in the Yucatan. Chichen Itza, founded around 400 A.D, had its heyday from 800 to 1200 AD and was the center of political, religious, and military power in the Yucatan.  Despite the large population, there was plenty of drinking water by many leading water caves and cenotes in the region. On a tour of the city, you will learn about the history of the Maya and Chichen Itza.

Coba (Maya: Cob Ha - muddy water)
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.
