We had a fabulous morning touring to this amazing Mayan village. It took 45 mins to get to, however Edder keep us entertained with the enthralling history of the area and the Mayan people. Saul drove us safely to our destination and supplied us with water to keep us hydrated :). Edder was very knowledgeable about the various sections of... More

We went on this tour with Kasey and Abner. It was excellent. Both K and A were professional and the information we got expanded and reinforced or knowledge of Mayan civilisation. Better still the additional time at the Mayan village developed the historic into the modern context and added the living dimension to the "pile of old stones" as our... More

We booked a Chacchoben tour with The Native Choice on our last cruise and we were extremely pleased. The ship excursions are often overpriced, so when I found out about The Native Choice and read all the great reviews, I didn't hesitate and I booked with them. The only tricky part is getting out of the port area in Puerto... More

An excellent tour! Perfect amount of time at the ruins and the lagoon. Eric, Alondra, and Edgar were outstanding! Would be nice if they got paddle boards at the lagoon as it was the perfect place to paddle board.

Chacchoben (chock-cho-ben) was not a major Mayan village, according to our tour guide, but it would still have been a fairly sizable place in the middle of the jungle. Before going on our cruise, our group decided that we needed to visit a Mayan ruin since we were going to be so close to them along our ports of call.... More

This was an excellent tour and worth doing instead of a ship based tour. The location was easy to find (once getting out of the port area). Rose was our tour guide and Alejandro our driver. They were both excellent and really took care of us. We were the only ones on this tour, however we joined about 10 other... More

This was a great tour, once we found our way out of the port area and were in route to Native Choice offices. Our morning began figuring out how to exit the maze of the port and that was the only problem we had. The map they provided wasn’t very helpful. However, we eventually did find their office and were... More

Toured the Chochoban ruins - were skeptical at first as this is not a "ship" tour company but needed not to have worried - easy to find - very professional - no waiting whatsoever - we were later than the original group - they left ahead and we had our own private tour van to meet up with the others...

We went on our honeymoon . . . the history and cultural experience was very interesting. Erick and Edgar were very knowledgeable and friendly. The food served at lunch were authentic Mayan dishes and cooked over an open fire. The family was friendly and took pride in their preparations for us.

The Native Choice office is super easy to find and everyone is very welcoming. We highly recommend the Chacchoben Ruins and Seven Colors Lagoon combo tour. Our tour of the Mayan ruins was an excursion that we were looking forward to. But my wife and I agree that Kaci our tour guide and Saul our driver made our experience the... More
