Mayan Ruins Tours in Jamaica

You'll go back in time as you explore the Mayan ruins of Costa Maya. These cities are old, and we mean really old - some of them were built almost 2,000 years ago. They offer a fascinating glimpse into life Mayan-style and visiting them is one of the best ways to spend your vacation time.

On a Mayan ruins excursion, you’ll have the opportunity to see these historic cities up close. Archaeologists love the ruins due to their unique construction and their use of intricate decoration. As you explore the atmospheric buildings, listen to the monkeys howling in the treetops. There will also be beautiful tropical plants and flowers all around the dense jungle landscape.

The two most popular Costa Maya ruins sites are the Chacchoben Mayan ruins and Kohunlich. Both are within a couple of hours of Costa Maya cruise port. Chacchoben is the most visited of the Costa Maya ruins and has loads of temples and plazas to explore. Kohunlich isn’t as well explored, but it’s perfect for an off-the-beaten-path adventure.
