ROYAL CARIBBEAN CRUISE – MAYAN RUINS EXCURSION

Our tour guide, Maria Martinez, was excellent. She was a wealth of knowledge about the Mayan culture and the Ruins. It is amazing to see the Ruins and try to imagine how these pyramids were built so long ago. Maria made sure we were able to see all the Ruins and provided us ample time to explore and take pictures. The bus ride from the port was about an hour and Maria was a great guide in making the bus trip not seem very long. This was a fascinating tour and also educational.

WELL WORTH IT- CRUISE SHIP EXCURSION FROM COSTA MAYA

We got into a bus from Costa Maya cruise port. Bus guide was very informative and clearly understandable. The ruins were amazing. The pyramid structure you first see was used for sacrifices. The remainder of the ruins were for storag of valuables and foods for the very wealthy during that era of history. We were in the “Beverly Hills” of Mayan civilization according to our guide. He also discussed the various plants, trees and fruits which all greatly enhanced the guides your of ruins. A must do over just sitting around at a beach. You can sip the tequila when,you get back to the cruise terminal.

CHACCHOBEN MAYAN RUINS

We we on the NCL Western Caribbean cruise and decided to do this as an excursion. We booked this tour off the boat. Outside the gates of the port. It’s OK, the people were nice and the prices were great. We went with a smaller group, about 12 of us in one van. It’s about 45 minutes to get to the site. The entrance was still being worked on. The entrance to the grounds was great. Not enough bathrooms for the amount of tourists that come and visit. So ladies there is a line. The have enough souvenirs for everyone. Bring a drink, hat, sun block because you’ll be walking. I wore flip flops…but I was fine. Otherwise wear good walking shoes. Got 2 mosquito bites so, if you have bug spray use it. Our tour guide, Lilia Virginia Martinezwas great. Spoke great English. The tour was 1 1/2 approximately. Got to see beautiful ruins and some areas that were still in the process of being excavated. Got great pictures. We got to climb a little, learned a little about the people, plant life, etc. We didn’t have to travel too far from the boat. Our driver also dropped some of us off to Senor Frogs after. Highly recommend.
