A Fantastic Day Of Adventure, Education and Fun – You'll Love This Tour! 
Mounting bikes/pedicab are provided to explore at Coba. A taxi tricycle is available for moms and babies, there are also smaller bikes available for children ages 7-11 (otherwise, there are taxi tricycles for them too). This is one of the greatest family tours we offer. It is informative and safe. At Coba you can climb all of the buildings, see crocodiles and visit an authentic Mayan village, seeing their lifestyle and wildlife. 
Your encounter with the Maya culture starts with a 1,500 year old historical journey to the ancestral city of Coba, an archaeological site hidden deep inside the rain forest of the southeastern end of the Yucatan Peninsula. Climbing the Nohoch Muul temple (the tallest pyramid of the state), you will be able admire the pristine beauty and immeasurable vastness of the surrounding subtropical rain forest. This journey then leads you to an authentic Mayan village, a self-sufficient Mayan community living next to an integral part of the region’s lagoon system. You will walk through the forest, learning the mysteries of their local fauna and flora. You’ll be able to see their lifestyle and wildlife. 

We’ll explore the Mayan ruins of Coba riding bikes or hiking. Coba is one of the most important sites of the Mayan culture, and is unique in that it has been restored. This quiet and peaceful archaeological site dates from 600-900 AD. Coba was the heart of a large metropolis composed of many cities within the eastern Yucatan Peninsula. It was one of the most important cities for Mayan culture because it is both a city and a religious center at the same time. No other Mayan city had this privilege. 
We’ll spend the day exploring the lost empire of the Maya, climbing the great temple of Nohoch Muul, and witnessing the once grand city of Coba. These are the biggest ruins near Cancun, Mexico. They are also the most recently uncovered, and restoration is still taking place. Afterwards you’ll swim in a fresh water underground cave cenote.

LDS Tour 2. Tulum, Coba and Cenote Tamcach-ha

     
 

Tulum (meaning wall in Mayan) is located 62 km from the city of Playa del Carmen. It is believed that the original name was Zama (meaning sunrise), since it is in view of a daily dramatic sunrise due to its geographic location. Tulum is divided into three areas: the Mayan ruins of Tulum, the hotel zone and the village of Tulum. 
The archaeological zone of Tulum is perhaps one of the most beautiful places on the Riviera Maya, combining the mystery of the ancient civilization which inhabited this area with the singular beauty of the Caribbean Sea which bathes its shores. The city of Tulum is the only known archaeological site located by the sea and belongs to the region known as Tankah-Tulum which comprises the zone of Tahkah, Tulum and Xel-Ha. It was constructed at the top of a cliff facing the blue sea and has and an underwater coral reef that is the world’s second-largest.

With Alma’s LDS all of our guides are gentle, warm and have a testifying spirit. They definitely have a similar speaking manner and demeanor. You are privileged to get a great touch of Mexico and the Nephite/Lamanite heritage from our guides. It is a pleasure to sense how very closely they are connected to the Mayan lands and committed to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Perhaps at Tulum you’ll be surprised to see a Mayan, Book-of-Mormon-like setting perched as a light house on the shore. Tulum was built as a fortress city overlooking the Caribbean. The important structures here include the Castillo, a former temple and the Temple of the Frescoes with a 13th century wall painting. This is the “Garden Tomb” of Book of Mormon lands for us. Here we find a depiction of a woman giving birth to an “upside-down” God. At the Temple of the Frescoes, we see a depiction of “laying on of hands” on one fresco – hands that are symbolically giving a blessing. 
The highlight of the tour is a three-panel series on the three-tiered temple. The center panel shows an upright God(which we interpret as God the Father). The left-hand side depicts an upside-down God (which we suggest as imagery of the Son of God, coming down to earth). The third panel is blank (which we propose might represent the Holy Ghost because He has no body). As the sun begins to shine in the morning at Tulum site, we take some quiet time to read 3rd Nephi and clearly visualize the Father announcing his Son, Jesus, whom he has sent down to minister and teach his gospel. It is a Beautiful Spiritual Highpoint of our tour.
We’ll explore the Mayan ruins of Coba by riding bikes or hiking at the Nohoch Muul temple
(the tallest temple in Yucatan peninsula after tikal), you will be able admire the pristine beauty and immeasurable vastness of the surrounding subtropical rain forest. We will explore the grounds of Coba on wheels.

This is one of the greatest family tours that Alma LDS Tours in Cancun offers. At Coba, you can climb all of the structures.
This journey then leads you to an authentic Mayan village, a self-sufficient community living next to an integral part of the region’s lagoon system, you will see crocodiles and you’ll be able to see their Lifestyle and wildlife. You will walk through the Mayan community’s forest, learning the mysteries of their local fauna and flora.
