Coba was built and became a central center of Mayan government towards the Classic period. This was at a time when the Mayan civilization was collapsing. Coba continued to prosper through the first part of this period. It is believed to have supported a number of people during this time. A few of the buildings may be entered and there are many paths leading to the interior of these buildings. It takes great care when allowing access to the old ruins.
