We did a tour through The Native Choice Tours and we HIGHLY recommend it. This was one of the best parts of our trip! We went to the Kohunlich Mayan Ruins and it was truly an incredible tour. It is a 10-15 minute walk to the Native Choice building, but it felt safe. They dropped us off right at the port afterwards.
These guys were fantastic! Juan Carlos is very knowledgeable and has a passion for the Mayan culture. We were given a wonderful tour by a wonderful guide, taken to a sweet little butterfly farm by a local biologist, and then returned safely with time to spare before the ship left port.
Very nice man, informative & friendly
Don't have to buy water as you leave ship
Tour provides water to and from ship.
Nice Ruins, take lots of pictures. Lots of walking, wear comfortable shoes.
Bargain at shops & get it there, bc not the same stuff back at Port.
Bring CASH if shopping & for tipping tour speaker if he's good.
Enjoyed the trip to the ruins to see countryside. Ruins were very interesting and the line for the ladies restroom was not a surprise. Cold water was so pleasant. Back to the ship for lunch and relaxing.
This tour consisted of a lot of time on the bus going between places. The ruins were interesting, but we were there a long time and I was unable to finish the tour due to the difficult walking conditions. The beach break included a late lunch buffet and free drinks on a remote beach north of the port. We got back VERY late and had to hoof it to the ship on the long dock, hoping we would make it. Our tour guide was good.
Great company and service. Would highly recommend for families. They were very conscientious and it was a comfortable drive. There was lots of information that they gave you and it was just a very pleasant trip with a great guide.
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.
