Mayan ruins of Coba

This is Coba. 1 of 5 sets of ruins my wife and I visited in Feb 2016. Click on the photos to enlarge.
I've had a mild obsession with ancient ruins since seeing my dad's pictures of Chichen Itza years and years ago.
Indiana Jones can probably also be blamed for my amateur archaeologist tendencies. Anyhow...
Coba is home to Nohoch Mul, the tallest temple pyramid on the Yucatan Peninsula. One of few you are still allowed to climb. Between 600-900 AD Coba was said to have had 50000 inhabitants and covered 80 square kilometres! Be sure to rent a bike if visiting as you have to cover a bit of ground to see all of the excavated sights. These are Noblex Panoramics shot on Ektar 100.
