Nohock Mul is a large pyramid in the Maya city of Coba, and is the tallest structure in northern Yucatan at 42 meters high. Believed to have been built between 200 and 100 B.C., tourists love this spot for its panoramic views of the surrounding area.


This steep pyramid claims to have 120 stairs. However, climbing these stairs may not be the easiest, as your feet are likely to be bigger than the steps themselves.
