Costa Maya Mayan Ruins Excursion Reviews
Very good tour guide, very nice park to explore ruins. It was very hot and humid and misquotes were troublesome for a few in our group.
I booked a tour of Chacchoben through The Native Choice before we left, and I cannot recommend this trip highly enough. Our guide was Ivan, and he was wonderful and very informative. The ruins are beautiful, and we even saw monkeys! The trip from just outside the port (about a 15 minute walk) to Chacchoben takes about an hour, and you see the true rural Mexico on this trip. Our bus stopped on the way back to buy pineapple from one of the women selling it along the street.
If you don't have an excursion booked for Costa Maya, don't even bother to get off the ship. The town of Mahahual has almost nothing in it.
Limited time here as well, but truly magnificent to witness these structures! We had PERFECT weather and not many tourists here during our visit. Great photos! The ship (Vision of the Seas) pressured our tour-guide to return to port early so they could leave port on time.
This was a great excursion but the bus ride was VERY long, I believe 3 hours each way. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and really got into it. The bag lunch provided was not good. You may want to bring food with you if you can.
Very insightful and thorough tour of the extensive Mayan Ruins. We had visited the Mayan Ruins at Belize in February and these were much more extensive.
Great tour guide--Daniel. Very interesting. Learned a lot of information. Beach was nice.
The 2.25 hour ride each way was a bit long. The ruins are, in fact in ruins and are being restored/rebuilt. Our guide, though pleasant was so talkative and slow that we saw about 1/4 of the ruins before we had to leave. I suppose he had to deal with people in good shape and those with canes. We climbed up and down and took pictures. I am sure there are much better Mayan sites.
