On the highway from Tulum to the Coba ruins, you will pass through the little roadside village of Macario Gomez where you will find a wealth of Mexican handicrafts for reasonable prices. Hammocks, tables, hanging lamps, hats...you will even find great little taco stands and fresh fruit stands where you can refuel on your way to or back from the Coba ruins. We love this pit stop on the Coba road and we think you will too! Visit the Coba ruins.
