TIPS for cruising passengers - do it on your own, save money and see more
thg 1 năm 2020
There are 3 outstanding sights you should see while your cruise ship is docked at Costa Maya port: Chacchoben ruins, Bacalar lagoon (7 blue lagoon) and Mahahual beach.
Here, I'll give precise tips how to do all 3 in 7 hours, based on our great experience from Jan 2020.
First advice is do NOT book via your ship or third party - DO it yourself: you'll save a lot of money, see more and have comfort over your time.
- on the Costa Maya docking date get up early, have your breakfast and bring with you beverages from the ship (suppose you have a drink package paid),
- be among the first to disembark the ship (this is important for later crowds at the archeological site),
- skip (just walk through) the whole Costa Maya port. It's a pretty big labyrynth style shopping area, built in Mayan theme-park like houses with inflated prices catered to cruising passangers. You can visit it on your way back when embarking the ship if you want,
- ignore the taxi drivers inside the port, they're more expensive,
- walk to the port gates and ramp and exit, there're plenty of taxi drivers waiting,
- haggle with them for day hire, telling the route you want: Chacchoben-Bacalar laggon-Mahahual beach, ask 7,8 of them until you reach a favorable offer,
- to have a picture - their offer is around 200$, we managed to negotiate 140$ (paying is at the END of the tour),
- first stop is Chacchoben archeological site (around 40 min drive). Here you have to pay taxi's parking fee 8$, plus 6$ pp entry fee. You can opt for a guide (30$), but no need, you'll see them around and can put your ear close to hear the story, moreover there are few explanation plaques,
- we reached the ruins at around 9.30 AM, almost the only one there (therefore is getting up early important). Count on around hour and a half for visit. The site is great, like Chichen Itza on a much smaller scale, but in a lush jungle. The driver waits you on the parking lot,
- when exiting around 11 AM huge crowds, no parking space, no place for pics with noone around (see my pics and get up early),
- second stop Bacalar lagoon - the 7 blue lake color lagoon (slightly more than an hour drive from the ruins). 2 hrs free time - terrific swim in crystal lake water, rent a kayak (10$ only),
- third and last stop is Mahahual beach (less than an hour from the lagoon) - more relax time before embarking (see my reviews on that page).
All the drivers we spoke to (haggled) were very nice, not pushy. That was also the case with our Xavi, very honest and decent man, only downside he didn't speak English, but we made it on our poor Spanish. At the end when paying we tipped him extra 10, so rounded the whole trip to 150$ - real bargain.
Do not be afraid, do that trip on your own and have a great time with no rush for much less money and in your own comfort without groups.
For your info, only Chacchoben (WITHOUT Bacalar and the beach) costs 119$ pp if booking via ship.

Chaachoben is really worth a visit. We have seen many Mayan ruins and believe this sight is excellent.

North of Chetumal, south of Tulum, west of Costa Maya, not much else nearby.
thg 1 năm 2020
Drove there by car rental from Tulum. Fairly easy to find. Entry fee is 65 pesos pp, but beware they don't offer to give any change. We had to purchase a snack from vendor to get sufficient change to pay admission fee. You can purchase a guide for up to 4 people for $40 USD. The vendors only accept USD, and souvenirs are over priced from what we've encountered elsewhere. Apparent a large percentage of their tourists come from cruise ships docking in Costa Maya. If you haven't been to Mayan ruins the cost of a guide is probably worth it. Nice pathway, some of it replicating Mayan roads. Several large buildings. Got to see several spyder monkeys while walking through the ruins. Worth the experience to see what ancient Mayans were able to create.

We went here as an excursion on a recent cruise. This area is interesting and very well maintained. The tour guide was very informative.

Watch for directions

Its an easy drive from Mahahual or Bacalar but when you are almost 10 mins away be careful You might get confuse on the entrance, since there is a sign that its advertise to turn to Chacchoben be careful if in this turn you start driving to streets its the way to the town ,not the ruins, the ruins announcement will have a pyramid logo and there are just couple of mins away from the town but not in the town so just return to the highway and continue straight thru the highway for couple more mins and the ruins parking lot entrance is right at the side of the highway and its advertise with the pyramid logo. Beautiful ruins with in the jungle Nature , small enough for a half a day visit, shaded enough to enjoy the walk and if you are lucky watch for the tall trees , Monkeys might be taking a nap I would recommend to hire a guide they are locals with great knowledge and guide you to a nice visit

So fascinating to see the ruins and the way the Mayans lived thousands of years ago. Beautiful facility with rich history. Just beware of the wild monkeys.

un peu decevant vu le prix
thg 11 năm 2019
en croisiere sur un navire MSC 'je ne vous recommande pas cette experience, a moins d'etre vraiment fan des croisieres::), nous nous sommes dit que passer par le mexique et ne pas aller voir les ruines d'un site maya ce serait vraiment stupid... nous avons donc pris une excursions (plus de 100$ tout de meme) pour faire 1h30 de bus aller, plus 1h30 retour, et rester environ 1h sur le site
dieu merci notre guide francophone nous a pas mal eclairés sur le site, ce que nous etions en train de voir, et une partie de l'histoire du peuple maya....mais meme si cela etiat interessant et que le peu de ruine qu'il y avait valaient un détour, cela ne valait certainelent le prix que nous avons payé

Im Gegensatz z.B. zu Calakmul darf man die Tempel hier nicht besteigen, dafür sind sie schön freigelegt/im Ganzen zu sehen. Wir haben 60Pesos pP Eintritt bezahlt und sind auf eigene Faust durchgelaufen (lokale Führungen über ca 45mins. werden am Eingang angeboten). Obwohl am Parkplatz einige Busse standen, hatten wir beim Durchlaufen nicht so viele Gruppen gesehen - dafür aber eine Affenfamilie in dem Bäumen :-)

This was a good tour. Daniel C was our guide, and he did a great job of presenting us with Mayan history (with visual aids) during the bus ride. The ruins were interesting. The only *slight* disappointment was, when they said we'd be able to climb one of the pyramids, we envisioned climbing all the way to the top of one of the classic ones you see pictures of. That wasn't the case, here. The steps you can climb are from a partially excavated pyramid. Still cool to climb, just not quite what we were expecting.

Cruise excursion: Adventure of the Seas Royal Caribbean:Chacchoben Mayan Ruins

Group profile: 2 adults, 2 children (8,4), 2 senior citizens (73,70)

Timing: 50 min bus ride each way from/to port. 1:20-1:30 mins on site.

Bus ride: smooth, there is not much around past the port. Pretty much sparsely populated area.

Ruins: lots of walking in a jungle setting. Bring bug spray. Lots of walking. We got to see a pyramid right at the beginning then a market area. Then there is a big climb up-to get to the top of a hill where there are two more pyramids: one larger and one smaller than the first one. Lots of opportunities to hear about history, get photo ops and explore. Its a circuit route so you come out the same way you come in. There are vendors of souvenirs and a cafe with light snacks at the entrance. Being that these are not the largest site and the biggest pyramids there is, it is worth it since the other excursions are twice as long. We had enough time to get out the port area without being rushed.
