San Gervasio is the largest
and most famous Mayan Ruins site on Cozumel, dating back to 300-400
A.D when this urban center was dedicated to Ix Chel, the goddess of
fertility, medicine, midwifery and weaving. Mayan women used to
make a pilgrimage from the mainland to visit the temples.
The architectural style appears to
be modeled after the capital of the Itzas, with the white stone
roads connecting all the temples, similar to the roads found at
Chichen Itza. While this ruins site is small compared to the giant
sites on the mainland, it presents an interesting history of the
Mayan presence on the island.
After you complete your
guided tour of the San Gervasio ruins, we'll head to the wild and
undeveloped Eastern shore of Cozumel, stopping to see the
spectacularly beautiful El Mirador, with it's natural bridges over
