San Gervasio Mayan Archaeoligical Site

San Gervasio is the most important historical Mayan site on Cozumel and the largest Maya establishment found on the island to date. San Gervasio was a sacred Maya site. It was also a strategic site for commerce and politics in the area. This historical destination was a sanctuary to Ix Chel, the goddess of fertility. It was an obligatory pilgrimage for Mayas, once during their lifetime, to visit Ix chel. On the walls of the buildings you can see ancient drawings and aspects of the rich culture of the Mayas. One of the most interesting buildings is the Temple of the Hands. Inside there are numerous small red handprints of unknown significance painted on the wall, perhaps it was an ancient daycare center for Mayan mothers!

San Gervasio is a place where one can explore Mayan culture and its mysteries. Guided bilingual tours are available or you can experience this amazing destination on your own; but make sure to visit this unique archeological site.
