Mayan Ruins and Cozumel Island Tour
San Gervasio Cozumel Mayan Ruins

Mayans believed it necessary to at least once in their lifetime make the difficult journey across open sea to the ancient city of San Gervasio on the island of Cozumel, home and sanctuary of ‘Ixchel’, the Mayan goddess of childbirth, fertility and medicine.

San Gervasio experienced an unusually long history, inhabited by Mayans from 300 B.C. until the 16th century. If you are interested in undertanding Mayan culture, you must visit San Gervasio at least once in your lifetime also. Protected as a National Park, it is now home also to a variety of jungle wildlife. Keep your eyes out especially for the large colorful iguanas that now inhabit the ruins, sunning themselves on the ancient roads called ‘sacbes’, pronounced ‘sock-bays’.

On this tour you will be picked up at your hotel or the pier where your ship arrives and be taken to the ruins of San Gervasio in an air-conditioned vehicle. After touring the ruins with a professionally licensed guide, you will have a sightseeing ride around the island with a stop on the windward side for a beautiful view high above the Caribbean Sea. Then it’s on to Palancar Beach for 2 1/2 hours of free time. There you can swim or just relax, take in the sun and enjoy a lunch and tropical refreshment. Food and drinks at the beach are not included. You will then be taken back to your ship or hotel.


Choose the tour with snorkeling and you will be taken from the beach to the reef by boat to a beautiful snorkeling location. With 2 1/2 hours of beach time on this tour, there is plenty of time to go snorkeling if you wish.
