San Gervasio Mayan Archaeological Site, Cozumel

(3.5/5 based on 1,100+ reviews on the web)
Follow in the footsteps of Mayan women, who were expected to make the pilgrimage to San Gervasio Mayan Archaeological Site at least once in their lifetime. An ancient reminder of the once-mighty Mayan civilization, the spiritual site was dedicated to the worship of a feminine god, Ix Chel, hence its importance to Mayan women. Consider taking a guided tour to fully appreciate the site's epic history, although information boards in English mean self-guided exploration can still prove rewarding. Look out for the site's resident iguanas, who like to bask in the sun. Bring your camera and sunscreen, and consider arriving early before it gets busy.

  • Great place make time because we could have stayed all day. It was pretty warm so bring your water. Lots of geckos so watch where you're walking. A definite stop.  more »
  • Visited here as part of an excursion on our Princess cruise. Our guide Sylvia was knowledgeable, informative and fun as she took us on a 45 minute tour; we then had about 15 min on our own to explore....  more »
  • I thought it was a cute and well kept place. Worth it, if you're in Cozumel and you like the story, take a ride out there. It is full of iguanas and there is humidity, so it is recommended that you go with plenty of water.
