We did the Mayan Experience tour through The Native Choice Tours and it was fabulous. The buses were new and very clean. The driver, Pedro, and the tour guide Maria were excellent. Maria was very easy to understand and she was very knowledgeable. The tour guide at the Chacchoben Mayan ruins was Ivan. He had a passion for the ruins... More

Our group of six were in a van by ourselves with a wonderful guide, Diego and excellent driver, Edgar. Diego was very friendly and informative, telling us about his country and the Mayan culture. Once we arrived at Chaccobean, another guide, Joel, led us around the ruins, telling us even more about the Mayans and answering all our questions. Diego... More

We researched our tour through Trip Advisor before booking and we are so thankful that we did this tour rather than through the ship excursion. Booking was easy and we only had to put a deposit down, which was a nice option. We paid the balance in cash when we checked in. The walk is only a couple of blocks... More

Erik and the rest of the team at Native Choice are fantastic! I was initially hesitant about doing this one (despite my interest in the ruins), but it was definitely worth it! This tour almost didn’t happen. We had difficulties getting off the boat and to the office, and ended up getting there ten minutes after our group had left.... More

This is quite the team. I see others have described what occurs on the tour. Let me just add that these are people who care deeply about their history and culture, and take enormous pleasure in sharing it with visitors. In addition to learning about the Mayan ruins, I found out that a pinch of chili powder makes fresh pineapple... More

We booked a local tour instead of our ship excursion in order to get a more personal experience. This is exactly what we got! Our tour was 2/17/15....Check in was quick and easy, they provided bottled water for all four of us in our party, and we were on a small bus with 6 other people. Joel, our tour guide,... More

We had a great time on this tour. It took an hour to drive out to the ruins from Mujahaul (the city the Port Costa Maya is in) and our driver stopped and got fresh pineapple slices for all of us to try. The group was larger, about 15 people, but MUCH smaller than every other group there. Enrique was... More

My husband and I went on the Mayan Experience Tour on 2/19/2015, our guide was Erick. Erick provided us with Mayan history, and local history during our ride to the Mayan ruins. Once at the ruins he provided a great deal of information on the ruins. After the ruins our group was split up into different tours, our group went... More

Rose and Raoul gave us a wonderful taste of Mahahual, Mexico. Rose shared local information and Mayan history on our very informative ride out to the Chacchoben ruins. The ruins site was just amazing and Enrique gave us real insight into the religious practices and lifestyle of the ancient people of the area. We had a quick stop in Pineapple... More
