We spent our last day at Vidanta Resorts on different tours before leaving for Puerto Morelos for another week.  Our 3rd tour will be the famous Mayan Ruins of Coba where we will attempt to climb the famous Nohoc Mul pyramid.

Forty miles from Tulum lies the ruins of Coba which is considered one of the important settlements in Mesoamerican history. This is the only ruins that is surrounded by several lakes. There are as many as fifty sacbes (ancient roads) that led into this huge Mayan city center, one of them over 62 miles long -- the longest in the Mayan world.

One of the famous ruins is the Nohoc Mul pyramid, considered to be the tallest in the Yucatan at over 126 feet with exactly 120 steps. The pyramid may look like easy to climb but as you approach midway, it is already scary for some of us "afraid of heights". You might think climbing to the top is easy? Wait til you come back down!

Nohoch Mol pyramid is not for the faint of heart. The steps are steep and uneven. They can be slippery, even when grabbing onto the fixed safety rope that extends from the bottom to the top. Going back down is very tricky, and many visitors resort to going down the steps, on their bottoms, literally -- sitting on the steps, one down at a time!
