Private Tour to Tulum or Coba: Mayan Ruins

Private Tour Guide in Tulum: Rod Ratner
Where Tulum Ruins meet the Caribbean Sea

Tulum & Coba are both beautiful archaeological sites:

  • Tulum ruins are the only beach-side ruins in the whole peninsula so the view and location are spectacular.
  • Coba ruins are hidden in the jungle of the Yucatan Peninsula and therefore you get a whole different experience. 
Coba Private Tour Guide: Rod Ratner
Coba: Yes! We are still able to climb the Highest Pyramid in the Riviera Maya!

Choose one out of this two different sites:

We strongly recommend you and your family to choose an early visit to any of the archaeological sites in order to provide you with the most enjoyable tour experience possible. All of the ruins in Mexico are open from 8:00 AM and close by 4:00 PM. From 10 to 12 you will find the most crowded times when the big tour buses arrive, by then we will be a step ahead, driving towards our next location!


  • It takes around 45 minutes from Playa del Carmen to arrive to Tulum ruins.
  • It takes about 1 hour and 30 minutes to arrive to Coba from Playa del Carmen.


  • The archaeological site of Tulum is easy to self-explore at your own pace (spending about 1 hour to 1 hour and a half) which will be an advantage on this special journey. Guided Tours are available only by request (not included).
  • The Coba site is larger (1hr and a half to 2hr visit) and would imply using a Mayan taxi service (we rent bicycles or pedi-cab for you) and a local tour guide (fee included).


Please note that we are not allowed to go into any of the ruins without an Archaeological by federal law.

At Tulum you will not need to hire a local guide as we will provide you with information right before arriving at the site. 


Please note that we will make sure to arrive early in order to beat the crowds and the heat. You will be able to enjoy any of these sites to their fullest and continue with the schedule according to your customized tour.
