When most people think of Cozumel ruins they’re likely conjuring up in their minds those iconic images of sites like Chichen Itza or Tulum.
While we don’t want to spoil it for you, it is important to start off by letting you know that the San Gervasio ruins in Cozumel are, ehm, more humble in nature.
Of course, that by no means implies that they are not impressive or played an important role in the history of the ancient Maya.
Not at all. It’s like having two kids and one is taller than the other. They’re both still special in their own right. That’s how it is with the Mayan ruins as well.
It’s just that you won’t find structures such as the great Kukulcan pyramid of Chichen Itza or a temple high on a cliff overlooking the Caribbean Sea.
So now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, let’s take a look at what you will find at this ancient archaeological site and one of our recommended things to do in Cozumel.
