About
Although not as popular as Chichén Itzá, these ancient Mayan ruins are noteworthy in their own right, as this is the site where Mayan women paid tribute to the goddess of love and fertility.

We took this tour a few days ago and it was fantastic. Our tour guide, Luz, was so knowledgable and made our time interesting and fun. She really knew her stuff. She was one of the best tour guides I've experienced and I've travelled a lot! The driver Arturo was also fantastic and pleasant. Highly recommended tour and if you are lucky, you will get Luz and Arturo.

We spent $20 to get a tour guide. Ricardo was wonderful, spent a lot of times explained all the history and fun facts. The tour lasted about an hour.

We took a tour here, from our cruise, and had a wonderful guide, that really enhanced the visit. We learned a lot, and we're glad that we visited the ruins.

Pros; The ruins were really interesting. Our guide Trisha was excellent.

Cons: The vendors. "Martin" has a shop on the left when you come into the park, $15 for $4 can of mosquito spray. I know it's a captive tourist audience but c'mon. It turned this from a nice tour into another place to get ripped off by the locals vendors.

I found the local people in Cozumel generally very friendly and kind but when they're intent on making their sales, they're sharks and you're their lunch.

Takeaway; Buy water, sunscreen and insect repellent before you leave. If you have a car, turn left when you leave the park. This roads ends at the beach and it's a really pretty drive along the east coast that will wind up in downtown in 30 minutes or so.

We visited as part of a tour with Royal Caribbean. This was one of three stops. We paid $65 per person. You could rent a car or motorcycle as others on our ship did. We enjoyed the tour and learned a lot. Be sure to take bug spray and water. Our tour guide had us buy water there wish I am sure is something they have arranged. We were rushed at the end and only had time to visit the 2 shops at the exit which is probably also arranged. You can negotiate what you are willing to pay as they start out a little high. I felt bad for the other shops as they which as they didn’t have an opportunity to sell things if you are with a tour group as we only had 5-10 minutes to shop.

This was a really nice Mayan site to visit. There is a lot to see and if you can get a guided tour that is best. As stated in other reviews, TAKE BUG SPRAY or be sure to put bug repellent before you start the walking tour. Wear comfortable shoes, take your water and be aware that some of the terrain is rough, so watch your step. All the employees were very friendly and take cash if you plan on purchasing anything. A lot of times the card readers were not working, so we were unable to buy anything and there are no ATMS in that area also. Prices are not bad at their gift shops and I think buying gifts there on site is a great idea since that money goes back to the site and their employees.

Be sure to use bug spray, the mosquitos are insane. The walk was gentle, we didn't take a tour and I am glad as it was so peaceful to wander on our own.

There are 2 Mayan sites that cruisers can easily visit while making port in Cozumel. They're San Gervasio and Tulum. Of the 2, San Gervasio is the easiest though it's also smaller. The site holds the temple that was dedicated to the Mayan moon goddess who was also the goddess of fertility. So, if you were a Mayan woman who wanted kids, you came here to give offerings to her. According to my tour guide, the maximum number of Mayan here was 600 and the site reflects that i.e. small. Still, it's worth checking out and was an easy bus ride from the Cozumel cruise ship terminal. If you're cruising into Cozumel and want to see some real Mayan stuff, this might be your ticket.
