It's very windy and our day is not without reward... a family of spider monkeys but they are difficult to follow...
Cobá - After the park, we head for Cobá, about 56 miles east of Chichen Itza and approximately 20 miles west of the Caribbean. A climb up the tallest pyramid, Nohoch Mul, 138 ft. tall with 120 steps, reveals two carvings above the alcove of the descending god, still bearing the slight colors of turquoise and red.
Only a few of the roughly 6,500 structures have been uncovered. As many as 50 sacbes, mayan roads, led into this massive city, including one which is over 62 miles long, the longest in the Mayan world.
Visitors can still climb this pyramid for a commanding view of the jungle from above.
