2016 Project Site Visit - Coba

Today, Mundoers also traveled to Coba, about an hour bus ride from Tulum.  The town of Coba seems isolated but it has a great feel and passionate locals who are proud to live in an ancient Mayan City. We were able to see the important archaeological site and ruins that housed impressive pyramids, ball courts, temples and ancient roads.

Walking the town of Coba outside of the ruins we saw homes that incorporated ancient Mayan wall structures, small hotels, outdoor restaurants serving Mayan cuisines, a large plaza and a school.  There is a potential to partner with an organization already established in Coba working with locals citizens.

This has been a successful first project site visits for Isa Mundo and we will be assessing potential school projects in the area which will be our first in the state of Quintana Roo.  We will keep you updated on next steps and look forward to launching a project in the region.

Muchas gracias.
