San Gervasio Maya Ruins
Cozumel Attractions

San Gervasio is the largest Maya (Mayan) archaeological site on Cozumel.

Inhabited from 200 A.D. until the Spanish conquest, San Gervasio was not only an important location for local commercial and a gathering place for government officials but also a sacred Mayan center.

As a sanctuary of the fertility goddess Ix Chel, the altars and shrines of San Gervasio
attracted pilgrims from other Mayan settlements to worship her .

San Gervasio is divided into 4 historical districts:

Manitas, the first area of the archeological site you see

The Central Plaza with civic buildings and temples

Murcielagos, an observatory building

Ramonal,  the oldest district in San Gervasio.
