Monday to Saturday.
You will be picked up at your hotel around 11:30am - 1:50pm (depending on the location of your hotel). At 2:30pm, you'll arrive at the archaeological site Coba (water will be supplied on the way). Get on a bike and enjoy the temples and lagoons with a guide. After your guided tour around the Coba archaeological site, you can choose to go adventurous or cultural.
If you choose to go cultural, be a part of the ancient Mayan culture and visit the Mayan villages and do some pottery and take it as a souvenir. Discover more about it, make some tortillas and be part of the tradition. If you choose to go adventurous, you will go on the ziplines and enjoy the views above the lagoon with loads of adrenaline. Have a refreshing swim at the sinkhole "cenote" afterwards.
From 6:15pm to 7:15pm, you'll enjoy a delicious dinner-buffet (water and wine included) watching an extraordinary Mayan live show and admiring the sunset. Finally, you'll be dropped-off at your hotel.

We loved seeing Coba and being able to climb the temple. We also enjoyed the biking part. Be aware that if you can't ride a bicycle then you can pay a little extra and ride on a trike that is pedaled for you and can seat two people at the front. My daughter and I did this because she forgot how to ride a bicycle. That ended up being our favorite part of the day. We had a blast. The man who pedaled the trike told us about the ruins and the breeze felt great. We loved that our tour guide was a Mayan who lived near the ruins. He was very knowledgeable and spoke Mayan, Spanish, and English very well. The transport was in a nice air-conditioned van/bus and the tour guide told us about the Coba ruins and the Mayan culture. This made the trip enjoyable. We chose the cultural experience, and I am on the fence about whether that was the best option. We knew we did not want to zipline, but the cenote sounded wonderful. The Mayan village was interesting, but the pottery making was not fun. We were given only a pingpong sized amount of clay, and were very hurried. Another group came in as we were finishing. Our guide did point out plants used for medicinal purposes, which was interesting. The head of the family whose home we visited showed us his Mayan bee hives which were also very interesting. A lady prepared hand made tortillas with pumpkin seed spread and they tasted great. All in all the cultural excursion portion of the tour was just ok. The dinner and show were great, very interesting and entertaining. We had ordered the lobster upgrade which was delicious but there was a delay in getting the lobster and we weren't told that it would be a big plate of food. If we had known that then we would not have gotten food from the buffet. We ended up looking like gluttons with two plates of food each. Be sure to take plenty of cash and some small bills because there are many opportunities to tip trike driver, cultural tour guide, family whose home was open to us, performers at the dinner show, driver, and main tour guide. There are also excellent shopping opportunities in the Mayan home and in the Mayan shops next to the dinner venue. Also, I'm not sure why this is called a sunset tour because you don't see the sunset at the ruins. The sun sat while we were at the dinner venue. All in all I am glad that we went. It was a really good excursion. I might have rated it a 5 had we chosen the extreme experience.
This was a wonderful tour! Between the ruins, biking, zip lining and dinner with a show we couldn't have been more pleased!
I loved this tour. It was a small group only 10 of us and that made it much more personal than some of the larger tours I took on my trip. Jesus was a great tour guide. He works incredibly hard to ensure everyone has an enjoyable trip. Luis drove the van and safely got us to and from Coba. It's hard to pick one favorite moment from the trip. Climbing the ruins, biking through the jungle, ziplining over a lake that had crocodiles in it, and visiting a Mayan village were all experiences that I'll never forget. The dinner and the show were a huge bonus. The food was great especially the pork. I highly recommend this tour!
