What were your favorite things at Costa Maya? We are thinking about the Chacchoben Mayan Ruins. Its a whole day trip... Is it worth it or are there other things not to miss at the Costa Maya stop? Would LOVE to hear your experiences & suggestions....

There used to be a swim up bar in the center of the tourist village. If it is still there, thats where I would go.

I found the ruins of Chacchoben to be quite awe inspiring. It is difficult for us to understand the total scope of mathematical knowlege and architectural abilities that the Mayans possess.

I loved this port because I went scuba diving and the diving was great! Everyone else I talked to at dinner that night hated this port and said they didn't think there was much to do right at the dock. You can do some shopping there and there is a beach but the beach has too much coral to really swim. I would say to probably to and excursion here so you enjoy this port. Either before or after you should have time to look around at the shops and stuff right by the port. Have a good time on your cruise!

I would highly recommend the Chacchoben ruins. Like drlivingson, we were amazed at the intelligence and ingenuity of the Mayans. It is worth the trip!
