Coba Archaeological Site

Quintana Roo

Very ancient and important Maya city between lakes, driven by long roads or sacbe’ob, which made it prevail over many others until Chichén Itzá defeated it. The city of Cobá is one of the few pre-Hispanic settlements that maintains its original name, as evidenced by inscriptions carved on the monuments.

Surrounded by five lagoons, it came to dominate an extensive territory, and its 50 raised roads, known in the Maya language as sacbé (white road), led to ceremonial-administrative-residential complexes.
