The Ruins at Chacchoben are something I have wanted to see since I was a kid. And it met my long term expectations! We booked the tour during our cruise and had a great experience. The drive is about 45 minutes from the cruise terminal and the site is really unique. Be sure to take the tour and not miss the unique history of the place.

Cruise ship ports at 1:30 local time (12:30 ship time), and the park closes at 5 local time. So, the tour can easily be pressed for time, and ours was. The ruins were cool, and if you have someone in your party who is into it, then you will enjoy it.

Well restored ruins with guides. Unless you know about the site and Mayan history a guide is a good idea. Use local guides, not the fellows from away. Nice walk around the site with some birds & monkeys in the trees. Go before noon to avoid the giant tour buses and mobs from cruise ships.

We booked a tour with Native Choice that included a trip to the ruins as well as a lunch with a local family. Our guide, Erick was phenomenal and was full of knowledge and entertaining stories. Once we booked, the confirmation came with specific directions, and many helpful tips. We felt confident with our choice, but we think this experience far exceeded our expectations, and rates as one of the top three tours we have experienced in our 40 or so excursions.

First, know this is a long hike from the cruise ship. Second, it is well worth it. Our 7 and 14 year old loved this site and the preservation is amazing. This is really why you take an excursion off a cruise ship. To see something you would not ordinarily see, and do something different. A great way to spend time while at port in Costa Maya.
