I did a trip to Coba compliment of the Cancun Tourist Board and it was pretty amazing. One could see the entire forest from the top of the Nohoch Mul pyramid. I’d like you to experience the same.
Coba is located in the Yucatan Peninsula just southwest of Cancun and north of the coastal town of Tulum in Mexico. It is in the state of Quintana Roo,

There are limited places to stay in the Coba area, but you can stay in Tulum or Cancun where there are many hotels. I stayed in the Moon Palace.
Check below for a place to stay.
==>> Try Airbnb.
Where To Eat
There are food places along the road to Coba and also food places at the Mayan Ruins itself. Plus there are restaurants in the town.
What To Do
Walk through the ruins of the huge Mayan city of Coba. You may also rent bicycles and ride to the main pyramid, Nohoch Mul pyramid. I did my tour with Alltournative, but you can find other tour companies below. The idea is to walk to the top of the pyramid; but take your time as its quite the hike and very steep.
Coba, Mexico – Kerwin at the top of Nohuch Mul Coba
I did not do the Coba Sunset Tour, but thats an option for you as well. Oh and there are also a number of Cenotes in the area.
