Tours to Ruins west of Chetumal

We will be in the Yucatan in February and want to see the ruins west of Chetumal. We won't have a car and wish to know if there are day tours available from the city. It doesn't look much like there's a lot of tourist action here.

Hi IslandGrovers -

I see that no one has replied so rather than leave you ignored - I'll tell you that I don't know of any. I went to a number of those sites in February 2008 and spoke to other tourists….and, all but one was driving themselves. The one exception was a retired gentleman from Iowa who was traveling alone by bus. We met up with him in Xpujil - he had made an arrangement with a Xpujil cab driver for the day to take him to several sites. He had spoken to the hotel staff (to recommend a cab driver). I believe he paid around 80 US dollars. Generally speaking, Kohunlich is about 70 Km / Chacchoben is about 80 km / Xpujil is about 160 km / Becan is 180 km away from Chetumal. There is supposed to be a very interesting Mayan Museum in Chetumal - we are thinking of checking it out this February.

Have a great trip!

Hello Lbuggs:

Thanks for the information. I think you are right; when we get to Chetumal we will ask around for a cab driver, should there be no organized tours. The museum in the city is on our list, for sure!

Have a great trip in February.

Cheers,

IslandGrovers
