The present day village of Cobá lies on either side of Lago Cobá, surrounded by a dense jungle. It has the tallest pyramid in the northern Yucatán, a magnificent structure, from with the views of the jungle from all sides are superb. You will not find in Cobá the great array of buildings which can be seen at Chichén Itzá or Uxmal, nor the compactness and sea views of the Ruins of Tulum.
