The Archaeological Zone of Coba
You can go visit Coba, directly to the archaeological zone by your own, renting a car. Or you could visit the great Sanctuary of the Melipona bee and Mayan Cacao to live some ancestral experiences. Like grinding cacao in the antique mayan style, using a “metate” an stone grind. This mayan zone is only 3 kilometers towards Tulum, we were there, the children enjoyed a chocolate drink (organic cacao) and we enjoyed a very rich cacao liquor. We saw some crafts that work in the same Mayan community, they explained to us how they extract the honey of the melipona bee and all its properties, we bought some souvenirs and they gave us some tips to go to Cobá such as bringing enough water, insect repellent and comfortable shoes.
How to get Coba by your own

So you must crive another 45 minutes more and you will arrive at Coba. If you are already in Cancun, you must take the road south towards Tulum and turn off before reaching the town of Tulum.
