Cobá Ruins & Cenotes Multum Ha, Tankach-Ha & Choo-Ha
After a long time in March we finally made it to the Cobá ruins and afterwards we were in the Cenote Choo-Ha.
We drove from Cancun by car to Cobá. The track really stretches to the limit and after a good two and a half hours we arrived in Cobá.
The entrance fee is 70 pesos per person and the opening hours are between 08.00 – 17.00.
We did not book or needed a tour, as we wanted to look at the ruins only once in peace.
The ruins consist of 5 building groups and a very high temple pyramid. It is really impressive how well preserved this ruins of the Maya still is. The highlight of these ruins is of course the temple pyramid with a height of 42 m and 120 steep steps.
It is allowed to climb the pyramid.
The steps are very steep and partly so worn, so you really have to be very careful. One is only “secured” by a rope which is fixed in the middle to the pyramid. I really enjoyed using this rope, especially when climbing down. The downhill climbing I personally found much worse than climbing up. I’m like all tourists crawled back down in half seat.
Once at the top you can enjoy the impressive view and visit the ritual room of the Maya. Nevertheless, I was really happy when I was safely back downstairs. This pyramid is also the only pyramid you can climb up to today. That’s why I really wanted to come here.
You should take something to drink,
because there are not many ways to buy something. Also, the site is quite spacious. If you like, you can jump on a “bicycle taxi” and have yourself comfortably chauffeured from A to B. We just walked.
Then we drove to the Cenote Choo-Ha. The cenote is open between 9:00 and 17:30.
I do not remember the ticket price, but it was not worth mentioning. I think it was 60 pesos per person or something like this. Underground you will find crystal clear water and a diving tower. The cenote has a depth of 12 meters and is equipped with toilets and showers. Parking is also available.
This was a nice and big cenote that I can recommend to you. In the immediate vicinity you will also find the cenote cenotes Multum Ha and Tankach-Ha. All three cenotes are beautiful and a cooling when you visit the ruins, as it is about 40 minutes drive to Tulum.
