My husband and I booked our Dzibanche Maya Ruins Tour excursion through The Native Choice instead of Carnival to get away from the "cruise crowds" (aka "moo tourists") and we were very impressed with the price, value, and service. The Native Choice's confirmation included everything needed; from detailed instructions about where to meet, what to bring/wear, and what to do if cruise dates changed (we went at peak hurricane season!). We were the only two people on this excursion with our very knowledgeable guide, David. David made the two hour drive seem too short as he taught us about the site we would visit, the areas through which we traveled, and about Mayan and world history. Dzibanche is a very remote and quiet (other than toucans and howler monkeys) location and other than a maintenance worker, it was just us and our guide...and the wildlife. Many of the buildings/pyramids/temples have been excavated and restored and many have not. Only the main pyramid was closed as it was still being excavated. David also knew about plants that help ward off mosquitoes, which were thankfully not a problem on our visit. If you want a more personal excursion at a lower cost, I highly recommend The Native Choice....and ask for David!
