After being closed due to a Covid-19 exposure, The Coba Archaeological Zone re-opened once again on August 15th.

Since the Covid-19 pandemic shook the world in 2020, many things have changed. One of those big changes has been the implementation of a number of policies and protocols that are intended to keep people safe.

A couple of the common protocols when there has been potential exposure to Covid is to shut down operations, sanitize as well as trace back and contact other guests who were around the day of the exposure so they can take proper precautions and get tested.

As The Cancun Sun previously reported, The Coba Archaeological Zone had just recently reopened after another exposure shut down when it had to yet again, shut down again for another cleaning and tracing sequence.  All Coba staff appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding while they do their best to keep up with protocols and standards.

The National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) has allowed  The Coba Archaeological Zone which is located in the municipality of Tulum, to re-open with strict prevention protocols put in place.  Guests will be able to explore the site Monday to Sunday, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., with last access at 3:30 p.m. However, only 230 people are allowed in simultaneously with a maximum of 2000 guests per day. 

Due to confirmed cases of Covid-19 with associates of the Cobá Archaeological zone, the location is now closed to the public until further notice.

The INAH has also stated that guests will have to follow prevention protocols while on site. These protocol include but are not limited to:

  • Sanitizing your hands
  • Maintaining social distancing of 1.5 meters between guests for the duration of the tour
  • Temperature check upon arrival
  • Wearing a face mask is also mandatory

Coba has emerged as one of the most important archaeological zones nationwide, which has led it to also become one of the 5 most visited archaeological sites in the country. It is rich in history and definitely deserves a spot on your bucket list.
