“Spectacular Mayan Ruins”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 29, 2012

Don't miss out on the opportunity to visit the Mayan Ruins in Costa Maya, Mexico with "The Native Choice" as your tour guide. They were very easy to locate outside the Cruise port with their own reservation desk located within a small shopping plaza. At the plaza you will board a nice comfortable bus. Our tour guide Henrique was very informed and spoke the whole way on the bus trip to the ruins about the culture in Costa Maya. The Mayan ruins were very interesting, beautiful and worth the trip to see them. We returned to the port with plenty of time to shop around before boarding our ship, Carnival Dream. I would highly recommend this excursion with The native Choice.

“Best time in Costa Maya!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2012

Booked the Chacchoben Extreme tour as a cruise excursion and had a blast! Our guide filled us in about the ruins and it was very interesting to learn about the Mayan culture and rituals. There are opportunities to climb a bit on the ruins and get pictures as well. There are bathrooms before you start walking around the ruins as well as water and snacks. After the ruins, you are taken to Bacalar Lagoon for lunch and swimming. The lunch was delicious and the fresh, home made salsa was so good! There are bathrooms available at the lagoon. There are lounge chairs for sunning and if you do choose to go into the lagoon, I would recommend water shoes as the bottom is a bit rocky. Kayaking is included in this as well as the water is a gorgeous blue. Would absolutely recommend this tour!

“This is the company to use, period.”

Excellent guide. Extremely informative and believable. Though not arduous, this isn't a tour someone who can't do stairs should go on. Beautiful, largely unspoiled temples.

“A+++++Must do and experience this wonderful site and people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2012

All of the above from other travelers... It is sad that the cruise company does not add this tour to the itinerary. Not only is an excellent tour, but you can shop at the Temple site and it's 3 times less expensive. The tour guides are the best. If you wait to get your souvenirs at the end of the Temple tour you can talk to the vendors to pay less... The lunch is amazing, a great spread and tasty too. You do have plenty of time to get back to the ship. Do take your bathing suit/towel with you because on the way back there is a huge pool that you can experience right at the ship's dock along with a pool side bar. Definitely the best tour in town! We actually never book trips on the cruise and this is by far the best... Enjoy!
