The area is home to turtles, crocodiles and abundant fish and bird life. Fronting the serene lake, Villa Cobá is situated on the edge of the village of Cobá only a 10-minute walk from the archeological site.
The villa is accentuated by richly-colored tile flooring, authentic Mayan statues, and Mexican pottery that blend together to create a native-like ambiance.
Despite its current-day tranquility, Cobá was once an important Mayan town, with 50, 000 inhabitants. The Cobá archaeological site is the only one in Mexico that tourists can visit either on foot or by bicycle.
