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 were very surprised at the amazing ruins of San Gervasio. The grounds are expansive and fascinating. Make sure to have a tour guide take you through - there are many nuances you will miss out on if you just walk through on your own.

Fairly modest and scattered ruins (unlike how I imagine the imposing 'skyscraper' Mayan pyramids of the Mexican mainland), but a great taster, nonetheless. The atmosphere, roving iguanas and clinging heat all contributed to the unmistakable sense that you were firmly in Mexico. The few stalls...More
