I visited Costa Maya in a family group of adults as part of a cruise. Our guide Joel was excellent and very knowledgeable about the history of Chacchoben, the Mayan culture, and the Mayan people. Spoiler alert: he is Mayan. Chacchoben was beautiful and not over crowded. Don't forget to get some pineapple with chili powder! YUM!

Native Choice did a great job on the tour. The walk from the port to the office is a very easy 10 minutes. The bus ride was nice and the tour of the ruins was informative and beautiful!. David did a great job as tour guide and has an unending knowledge and passion about the Mayan life and history. We... More

We booked through native tours based on the review and we weren't disappointed! Our ship arrived late- but I had an email from native tours letting us know that they were going to be late- it was no problem walking off the ship and finding where to go. The vans were really nice, very comfy for our extended family of... More

We were taken on a tour of Cozemel with Native Choice Tours and the couple who took us (Angela and Jose) treated us to a great time there. They took us to several places, all were of great interest - the Mayan Village, Mayan Ruins, the market. They showed us probably more of Cozemel than anyone else on our cruise... More

I had tried twice to make a reservation for a different tour so was somewhat disappointed that our cruise ship did not arrive on time to do the tour we had signed up for. However, the tour for Chocchoben with Erick was great! He really cared about the history he was sharing with us and it showed. Employees also carried... More

The staff at Native Choice was friendly, informative and professional. We went to Chacchobben ruins and had a great time despite the heavy rain. With that being said I will have to say I was amused with the fact that we were given umbrellas upon our arrival and the tour from our cruise ship had garbage bag ponchos. Another great... More

To start off, we got to the port 2.5 hours late so we were extremely worried we would not get back to the ship in time but we continued on in hopes we would be ok on time. The walk to the office seems not to bad on the map but in reality it is a bit of a walk... More

We booked this before embarking on our cruise after reading all the positive reviews, and we were not disappointed! Our guide David was very passionate and enthusiastic about sharing his culture with us. He welcomed any questions we had and even purchased some pineapple for us to try. Oftentimes, tour guides are working for the tips, but David really seems... More

It was a hot day in May and we were met at the pyramid on the way to Native Choice storefront and given a ride the rest of the way. That was a very good beginning to an extremely enjoyable day. Check in only took a few seconds since we had prepaid and we were in a van and on... More
