When visiting Costa Maya, there a very few things to do in port (other than shopping and swimming/eating at Senor Frogs). We booked a tour with Native Choice to visit the Chacchoben Maya Ruins. Once arriving at port, the walk to the office is about 10 minutes away (but they'll drop you off right at port at the end of... More

We visited Costa Maya as part of the Carnival Glory cruise. We had arranged a tour via Native Choice prior to our trip. We made all the arrangements on-line; the website was very user friendly, and their follow-up via e-mail was very clear. They met us just right outside the port, and although we were a few minutes late, our... More

My daughters (ages 12 and 15) and I took the Mayan Experience tour in August 2014. We found our way to the Native Choice tour office easily enough (with their emailed instructions). Be aware that theirs is the only office that isn't near the cruise ship port, it's about a 10 minute walk. We were in a tour group with... More

While visiting Costa Maya, a port on the Carnival's Conquest itinerary, with the family, we took the Chacchoben Extreme Tour from Native Choice. We visited the Chacchoben ruins and Seven Color Lagoon which was both an educational and enjoyable experience that we would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Costa Maya. Our tour guide, Frine, was very knowledgeable and provided us... More

"Joel" (pronounced Ho-el) is an excellent native Mayan guide for The Native Choice Tours. During the 45 minute ride from the port to the ruins, he gave so many insights about recent history of his people and how the area is becoming more and more developed. At the Mayan sites, he gave a very interesting narrative of the history of... More

We booked this tour for our day at port in Cozumel. It was FANTASTIC! We had a group of 8 that included a two year old and great grandma. Our tour guide Raquel was very friendly and knowledgeable and after spending the day with her we felt like we were leaving a member of our family behind. The van was... More

We booked our trip with Native Choice to see the Mayan ruins before we going on our Carnival cruise. We were so glad we did! They provided us directions to their office, which was a 10 minute walk from the port. Our tour guide Erick gave a great tour from start to finish. In addition to seeing the ruins, we... More

He shared so much information with us as we drove to... More

We took the Chacchoben Ruins Tour on July 10th while visiting Costa Maya on the Carnival Sunshine. The tour was easy to book online and I immediately received an email confirmation along with the directions & map on how to reach the Native Choice Tours office. I was traveling with my husband, 3 sons (12,15,19) and my oldest son's girlfriend.... More
