Excellent Excursion. We booked the later trip and although I was a long bus ride it was definitely worth it. The ruins are amazing, our guide was great (Roberto). It was very easy to find the location to meet us with the tour, the bus was comfortable, and everything was orderly.
Kohunliche and Dzibanche - about a 2 hour coach ride to get there but so worth it. The ruins at both are magnificent and there is an aura at each site - both are in the middle of the jungle and off the beaten track - Kohunliche more than Dzibanche I think. You can climb the temples at both to get spectacular views. I just loved both of these, and even people who had been to Chitchen Itza said these were better.
Wonderful tour of Choccoben ruins and lunch at a Mayan village. Hugo was an excellent guide at the ruins, and the lunch and experience after was worth the trip. Native Choice tours is about a 6 block walk beyond the port/shopping area, but well worth the walk.
Kolcunich Maya ruins. Short walk outside of port, short wait. Long drive. Driver's english wasn't too good, but good enough. Ruins very interesting and well preserved. You can climb on the ruins, which is unusual in Mexico. Some ruins in Belize are higher, but this was still excellent.
Outstanding in every way. David Villagomez, our guide, was knowledgeable and personable. Clean and new buses. Felt very safe with this company. Ruins were impressive to see and hear about. High recommend.
Costa Maya, Mexico. We did the COSTA MAYA CHACCHOBEN MAYAN RUINS AND BACALAR KAYAK EXCURSION. We had to walk four blocks from the dock security area to the Native Choice offices … why they couldn’t meet us at the dock security area is a mystery to me. The tour itself was kind of ho hum after the ruins in Belize and the Bacalar part was a waste because we couldn’t kayak due to high winds. However, our guide Rose made up for it with her knowledge of the Mayan culture in Mexico which is somewhat different than Belize.
We visited Chaccoben Mayan Ruins, they were absolutely incredible. The ruins are about 50 minutes from the pier each way and you are transported in a very large and comfortable air conditioned bus equipped with a bathroom. Complimentary water bottles are constantly offered but it is essential to bring tons of bug spray!! The ruins are covered in mosquitos and Zika is found on mainland Mexico and throughout the Caribbean. These ruins are not to be missed!
Wonderful excursion but for the heat and humidity. Very informative and interesting. I would have given it 5 stars but for the weather. You will be doing a lot of walking and standing. This was a problem for me as I have foot and leg problems.
Dianna was our guide. She was a great guide for the 10 family members who took the tour. Diana is very informative and gave the tour with such pride. She had the children really interested in the history. When we arrived at Chacchoben she took us to the end of the tour and worked backwards which was great because we carried out our climb in peace and missed all the crowds. Watch out for the Red Ants so do wear socks. The tour lasted about 4 hours in total and was very interesting thanks to Dianna
