Awesome experience!

This excursion was a great experience. We got to travel to ancient Mayan ruins and learn about their history and what happened to the Mayans. The ruins were majestic and something everyone should see. Afterwards, we were driven to a beautiful estate with villas and palm tress and an amazing view of Bacalar Lagoon. We got to eat some delicious tacos that were included with the price and offered all we can drink as well. There was a play area for kids, kayaks, chairs and tubes available. Our only complaint was that the swimming area has large and slippery rocks, but that's not really something that can be controlled so we understand. Our tour guide, Diego was very informative, funny and friendly. We definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting Costa Maya. If you go, enjoy the "massage" on the drive there!!

Erick was amazing and personable and full of so much fascinating information about the area, the Mayans and the ruins. Getting to the company is a small trek, but their instructions are spot on and I was able to find it easily enough. The ride to the ruins was in a comfortable and air conditioned van. They passed out plenty of water bottles for us to enjoy and cool down with as it was a really hot and humid day. After learning about the ruins, we’d all get a chance to explore and take pictures before moving on. After Chacchoben, we traveled to the Lagoon area for a light lunch of tacos and drinks. It was absolutely beautiful, but I would recommend water shoes as there was no soft sand but gravel and the man made lagoon was rocky as well. I really enjoyed kayaking around the lagoon. Just wish we’d had a little more time there. This was a great tour and the staff were always on hand with a friendly smile. Highly recommend

Incredible experience with the best guide Joel!

We had an AMAZING experience at the Chacchoben ruins. Our guide Joel was from the company Native Choice, and he was incredible - a native to Costa Maya who had a history degree and grew up around these ruins. We learned so much and had the best time. I can’t recommend this enough - but remember to ask for Joel as your guide!

Loved supporting local and seeing how locals live on the drive to the resort! Erick was super knowledgeable, helpful and kind. The bus we were on was super nice and very comfortable. We loved seeing the ruins but we really loved the little resort, with amazing food and service. Definitely the highlight of our whole trip.
