Thanks!
we are going to do the Maya Chen beach. Got recommendation from a fellow DISer and they have great reviews onTrip Advisor. www.costamayabeachresort.com we're going there in three weeks off of the EB Panama Canal cruise.

There is a very small port area with a few shops. We were very unimpressed with the souvenirs. Much of what we saw, we can buy the exact same thing here at home (San Antonio). Granted people who live further from Mexico may find it more interesting than we do, but it is stuff we can just go downtown to buy and don't.

My parents considered Native Choice but their excursion times over runs the DCL time by 1 hour I think.

I emailed them for confirmation that it will run based on the Fantasy's schedule, but didn't feel confident so ended up booking through DCL anyway.

They will modify for the cruise ships schedule. Their tours are not set in stone at all. The day I was there we were the only ship in Costa Maya so the two tours at they had at Chacchoben were only DCL people. I was told to head to the check in desk as soon as we got off the ship, we did not wait until one hour after the ship docked as their website says. We only waited about 10 minutes after checking in before we left. If you fell more comfortable with DCL then book through the ship, just want to make others aware that The Native Choice will work with times.

Thanks, that's very helpful. We'll consider it. They still have 4 days to cancel their DCL booking before they leave.
