Fantastic!!! Kasi is knowledgeable, informative, & loves her culture/history. She supplied us with so much info that I wish I had recorded it! Edgar (our driver) did a great job getting us to/from the ruins. Though it's a long drive, it's well worth it!

Diego (our tour guide) was very knowledgable about the Mayan culture and gave us an excellent briefing during our visit of the pyramids. Our driver Alejandro was attentive and respectful, offering water and wet clean washcloths during the excursion on a hot sunny day. The Mayan experience was interesting, we got to meet this humbled family, learned about their local... More

My wife and I are so glad we listened to the TripAdvisor reviews and used Native Choice Tours. The walk to their office was not bad but it was quite hot walking in the sun. It was a SAFE and quiet walk. We were greeted with smiles and bottled water. The air conditioned mini bus was clean and comfortable. Erick,... More

We selected this tour based on the reviews on Tripadvisor. Be forewarned, that it is a bit of a walk from the ship terminal to their office. If you have mobility issues, you might want to consider a taxi. Our guide was David who truly loves his work. It was a relatively long ride out to the ruins with nothing... More

My family booked the Chaccoben Extreme Tour directly with Native Choice and it was excellent. Our tour guide, Casey, was insightful and provided a history of the Mayan culture. The ruins were amazing and we had enough time to shop for souvenirs at the stalls at the Chaccoben ruins. After leaving the ruins, we boarded the van and were driven... More

We decided to not book with the cruise line and use Native Choice to visit the ruins. It was a great decision. It's an easy walk (few blocks) from the port and well worth it. Much cheaper than booking through the cruise line and their entire team was very friendly and knowledgeable. Our tour guide Joel was outstanding. He was... More

We booked this tour before going on a cruise,the price was far better than the cruise ship tour. We docked at Costa Maya, and after leaving the ship found the office very quickly. The people here are very friendly and willing to show you directions. After finding the office we where given bottled water, and set off in are air... More

WOW! So happy we booked with the native choice instead of cruise line. Not only was it less expensive but the small group gave us the chance to really get a feel for the culture and history of Costa Maya. The Chacchoben Ruins guide was wonderful, we learned so much on the way to the site and professionally escorted through... More
