Mayan ruins are truly spectacular so tourists visiting the Yucatan region, including the Riviera Maya , should make sure to include tours to Chichen Itza and Coba Ruins, In fact, if you have the time and the money, it may also be a good idea to spend a nine-day tour that will give you an opportunity to visit and walk on the best preserved Mayan ruins in the entire Yucatan Peninsula. However, if you must choose one, then you should consider the ruins in Tulum because they contain some of the most important Mayan finds.
Of all the Mayan ruins, the Coba Ruins are the most popular. Coba, which literally signifies murky waters, represent the five lakes in the Yucatan. The major attraction in Coba is the Nohoch Mul, which houses the highest Mayan pyramid in Yucatan. Another popular ruin in Coba is El Tiempo de la Iglesia, which is The Temple of the Church in English. It is also quite popular to tourists. Many historians claim that the city of Coba diminished in popularity to pave way to Tulum and Chicheh Itza towns during the Spanish occupation. If you go deeper in the jungle, you will also be able to come across the Muyil Ruins, which is nearer the Mexican marine sanctuary Sian Ka'An.
Although the Chicheh Itza and Coba ruins are popular Mayan ruins, the Muyil Ruins are also starting to gain attention from tourists recently. The only reason why this area was not accessible decades ago is that the ruins are actually inside the jungle of the Yucatan. Aside from marveling at the Mayan architecture, you can also go bird watching in Muyil. In fact, tourists who include Muyil in their itinerary are usually nature lovers and adventure seekers. Visiting these Mayan sites is actually no longer difficult, particularly because tourist guides will lead you to paths that are easy to follow and track.
Before you go inside Mayan ruins, however, it is advisable that you get to know the forecasted weather conditions in the area and if there are available accommodations or restaurants. If you visit Chichen Itza and Coba Ruins, you actually do not need to bring your own meals. Majority of Riviera Maya tour operators actually include food in Coba and Muyil Ruins tours. Besides, you should try popular Mayan delicacies, which include La Cochinita Pibil (pork in red spice sauce cooked the traditional way), while you are in the Yucatan peninsula.
