Archaeologists believe Coba was one of the most important Mayan cities on the Yucatan Peninsula. Coba means ‘waters stirred by the wind’, an appropriate Mayan name as the city is surrounded by two large lagoons.
The city is hidden in the heart of the jungle. Visitors can enjoy shaded walkways that are the original sacbeos (white roads), three settlements that show the architecture of this once large city, 2 ball courts and climb the highest (42m) Mayan pyramid in the Yucatan, Nohoch Mul.
The archeological site contains numerous stelae (free-standing carved stone slabs), that document ceremonial life and important events of the city. Some stelae here depict women, suggesting the city had many female rulers.
