This excursion far exceeded my expectations. Our tour guide Edder and driver Pablo were knowledgeable, entertaining and personable. He went around the big tour groups to give us the best possible experience and even stopped at a local stand to let us try fresh pineapple.

We had Fabiola as our guide - she was wonderful, describing the history and heritage of Chacchoben ruins. Highly recommend! We did the tour during our cruise port day in Costa Maya and had enough time after the tour to also look around the port.

They are super good about getting you back to ship in time. We did the earliest tour and got back with plenty of time to still see the touristy shopping area at port.

Yes, I have an electric scooter and they took it in and out for me and treated me like royalty! The only part I was unable to see was up and over one of the ruins, but our guide took me around to a different area that the... More
