Default Belize or Costa Maya Ruins or Both???

Help! I can't decide if we should do the ruins in Belize or Costa Maya or both. I'm thinking about the Cahal Pech in Belize and then Chacchoben in Costa Maya. The information I've seen on websites on the Cahal Pech ruins look very interesting. We have such a short stay in Belize (1:30 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.) that I thought I'd book a cruise line excursion just to be on the safe side. I was thinking about Chacchoben in Costa Maya and then spending the rest of the day exploring Majahual. Just thought I'd get anyone's thoughts on these two tours.

Many thanks!

Not sure where the above poster went, but Chacchoben definitely has SEVERAL structures. I was there two years ago (also been to Tulum) and Chacchoben was fantastic. I have not been to any ruins from Belize yet, so I cant compare those for you. I have photos of Chacchoben if you are interested.
