The site is huge. I walked all the excavated ruins. The sacbeoob (a sacbe is an elevated road the Maya built to facilitate travel) look just like all the other paths when you're on them. They're wide and have trees growing on the sides. If you look closer at the edge, though, there's a slope. Pretty neat.
Coming early really made the experience - there were so many people coming in at noon, as I was leaving. One of the reasons I wanted to visit Coba was the slightly more wild, less civilized atmosphere. I'm equally glad that I'm not staying, though. It's oppressively hot, even at 9am. I had thought I might stay the night in Coba and then continue on to Chichen Itza, but I changed my mind when I got to Tulum. Now I'm really glad I did. Going further inland (at least during the summer) is not for me. I can't wait to get back to the ocean!
