Cozumel Sights

San Gervasio

  • Archaeological Site/Ruins

Updated 03/29/2013

Fodor's Review

Surrounded by a forest, these temples make up Cozumel's largest remaining Mayan and Toltec site. San Gervasio was the island's capital and ceremonial center, dedicated to the fertility goddess Ixchel. The classic- and postclassic-style buildings and temples were continuously occupied from AD 300 to 1500. Typical architectural features include limestone plazas and arches atop stepped platforms, as well as stelae and bas-reliefs. Be sure to see the temple "Las Manitas,"

with red handprints all over its altar. Plaques in Mayan, Spanish, and English clearly describe each structure.
