An authentic window into the Maya world
The archeological sites at Tulum and Coba are authentic jewels of the Mexican Caribbean. Both were built by the ancient Maya in different time periods, beginning in 100 B.C. and ending in A.D. 1520 with the Spaniards’ arrival. Immerse yourself in Maya culture, from the highest Maya temple to the depths of the ancient Maya underworld!
Tulum is one of the most frequently visited archeological sites in Mexico and the Riviera Maya. It is probably the first big city seen by the Spanish conquerors, and the city’s splendor led them to declare that even the big city of Seville wouldn’t appear bigger or better! You can’t miss seeing one of the most impressive urban areas ever constructed by the Classic Maya civilization.
Allow our LDS professional guides to help you relive the past as you learn about the engineering, writing, architecture, and the intimate presence of the Book of Mormon teachings in each monument. Without a doubt, Tulum, Coba, and the refreshing cenote Tamcach Ha (a natural sinkhole) make this tour the most memorable experience during your vacation to Cancun.
Visit the Temple of the Descending God, the Temple of the Creation, the House of Halach Uinick (high priest), admire its surrounding walls, and find out the meaning of well-known Maya rituals such as the purification ceremony or human sacrifice.
Cenotes were the entrance to the underworld for the ancient Maya. Don’t miss this great opportunity to swim in the clear and refreshing waters of the Tamcach Ha cenote and enjoy this natural wonder, a place as mystical as it is incredible.
