We arrived a little late due to our underestimating the walk (we have two disabled travellers with us) eventually jumped taxi and the company arranged for the 5 of us to catch up on the tour ....
Lorenzo initially began regaining us with information re the local villages and when we arrived at the ruins Edder and Rito took over.
Edder is extremely knowledgable and patient, we were a bit slow as it was a drizzly day and the paths were wet and wee bit slippy. We ere entertained or should i say Edder was interrupted by some spider monkeys playing in the canopy above.
Rito was very kind to assist one of our party with the short path between the ruins .
Regaled by the information and knowledge of Edder it was then time to head for the lunch time with the family and this was a most special treat indeed. Glad we booked this trip, felt we genuinely enjoyed the hospitality and the culture and would recommend booking this trip and using this company with no fears whatsoever.
Outstanding experience with our tour guide Jose Manuel and our driver. The ride is smooth and safe. Our driver is kind enough to carry cold water for our whole group (12 people). Our tour guide Jose Manuel Palafox Puc is very knowledgeable and patient with our young and elderly travellers. We learned a lot on Mayan history and culture from the tour!
A very interesting excursion, because of the fantastic and extensive explanation of our guide, Ivan!
Thank you so much!
David was a truly wonderful guide, so knowledgeable about history and also a very interesting and fun person. He was also a safe driver. We were the only two people on the tour, so David was our private guide :) what a treat!! At the ruins he found pieces of pottery and even a piece of an obsidian knife. I am lactose intolerant, our lunch was a vegetarian sandwich, I&#039;m not sure what the greens were, but they were amazing! I would recommend to anyone that they book through Native Choice, it&#039;s a short walk, the map is very accurate and easy to follow. All of their tours look very interesting, we are looking forward to going back to Costa Maya and trying out another one.
Tour guide, Fabiola, was very knowledgeable and an excellent guide. After seeing the Mayan ruins, we went to a small, but beautiful resort for lunch and some time on their private beach. Swimming and kayaking available. Good value, much less expensive than tour offered by cruise ship, that did not include the resort experience.
This tour was by far the highlight of our vacation. The staff was very nice and so knowledgeable of the ruins. They were able to answer all our questions and provide so much information that we were blown away by the experience. We didn't feel rushed through the ruins at all and were able to explore each area thoroughly. They even stopped and got us some fresh pineapples on the way back to the port, which were amazing. I would recommend this tour to everyone! Great staff and awesome guides!
Very pleasant welcome when we arrived at the departure point from all staff. Our guide was Hugo, who is very knowledgeable about history and the local flora. He was also very personable and interactive with both adults and children in our group. Our driver was named Able and he is very able to drive safely and serve us as well. A great team and a wonderful down to earth tour for us.
Really friendly and helpful throughout. We enjoyed it very much and would recommend it highly. All were very knowledgeable and we learned a lot. Very excellent! We only wished that it could have lasted longer - at the very least we would want to do the Extreme version that included a meal. That would offer the best experience and is definitely worth the time and $.
We now know that Costa Maya is in the state of Quintana Roo, and that there are only 1500 people in the village of Mahahual (Ron that was for you :)
We will never forget you, nor the welcome that you gave us. The people here are amazing!
