Riviera Maya photo of the day – Vist Coba a local Mayan treasure

Posted April 22, 2014 by LocoGringo in Family vacations,Loco Adventures


The Maya did not recognize Easter holidays, but they did celebrate the Spring Equinox in style. Easter falls about a month after the Spring Equinox this year but that does not mean that a visit to the Coba ruins during your Easter vacation is not a worth while endeavor.

The main pyramid can still be climbed unlike other Mayan sites, you have the option of using the Mayan Limos to take you around this large site,...

We have a big family, and there are some little ones (nephews and nieces) that get us out and about to different restaurants when they come to visit. By no means are there exclusive 'family restaurants' in the Riviera Maya, but there are some fun...
