Default Costa Maya tours to Mayan ruins

I seem to remember some input about Mayan ruins from Costa Maya. I've done Tulum and Chichen Itza several times each and would like to see others. Saw one in Belize that was being excavated a few years back. Anyone have any input?
Thanks if you do!
Marty

We really enjoyed the Chaccoben ruins. They are not quite up to Tulum. We have never been to Chichen Itza but I think it is something special. Still, Chaccoben was very interesting and well worth a visit.

We booked independently with David and Ivan at Costa Maya Excursions | Activities in Costa Maya, tours and travel information
and they did a terrific job! (Note that the cruise lines try to control Costa Maya and you have to be persistent to get out to the independent van loading area!)

check out our trip report and pictures at The Halls Western Caribbean Cruise

Have a GREAT cruise!

Thanks, Mike. I will always choose seeing something historic over a beach day, which is what I consider Costa Maya to be. Really appreciate the info.

We went on the Chacobben excursion and had a great time. It was only a 4 hour tour so we did not spend all day on the bus, in fact it was only a 45 minute bus ride away from the pier. The ruins were great and our guide explained us so much about the Mayas which made it a great experience. On the way back we had the choice to go straight to the ship or be dropped off in town, which we did. It was great as we still had time to enjoy the beach and a cold Corona. There are many beach bars/restaurants on their main street.
