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 loved the tour guide Maurice. He was informative and entertaining. This was an excursion from our cruise. The site was unique and easy to navigate. There were lots of iguanas.

This isn't the most spectacular set of ruins to see when coming to Cozumel. If you want to see massive pyramids and such, you'd be better off taking the bus trip to Tulum on the mainland, but that is an all-day trip. These are located on the island less than 30 minutes from downtown or the cruise piers. There are... More

We hired a cab at the San Miguel cruise terminal and had him wait while we self guided ourselves through the ruin. Well marked and worth 1 to 1 1/2 hours depending on your walking speed. We got there before most of the tours - a rule of thumb for any of the easily accessible ruins in the Yucutan. A... More

These aren't the tall ruins fond on the mainland, but they are just as interesting and steeped in history.

It only cost $19 for two of us. You do not need a tour guide as there are signs by each ruin describing them. There is a gift shop. There is a shop where you can buy water and snacks. I highly suggest buying extra bottles of water as you can become easily dehydrated in the Sun and Heat. If... More

We spent a couple of hours touring this Mayan site. A very interesting site to learn about how they dug for fresh water on this small island, and a few small temple sites. It is very hot, and on the paths there is very little breeze so make sure you stay well hydrated. There are shops at the entrance, but... More

Even our tour guide said it was just okay, but if you love Mayan ruins this one is unusual and larger than expected. It is a shrine and pilgrimage spot for women. It is dedicated to the fertility goddess. Three areas connected by sacred roads and a very nice ancient plaza. Many birds, butterflies and iguanas as well.

Recommend you budget about an hour for the ruins. Great walking for this one. Not a lot of signage though so it might be better to pay one of the guides waiting to take you around in the front. There is a lot of walking on uneven ground so wear comfortable shoes. Nice way to see some Mayan culture while... More
