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.

At the suggestion of our driver we visited this Mayan ruin...so glad we did. Our tour guide, Mauricio, was great. The site is beautiful, small, uncrowded and easy to navigate.

Interesting place to visit if you want to learn about Mayan history and culture. This site is smaller and quieter than other archaeological sites on Yucatan peninsula, so you will not be too impressed if you have seen Chichen Itza, Coba or Tulum before.

Very very neat!! Amazing to be in a place that dates back so far in history. Very hot in the summer but worth it. Nice gift shops outside the site too.

San Gervasio is a really interesting complex of ruins - mainly because you see the progression and growth of the citadel through time. The boards by the ruins are informative and helpful - as are the staff. I would recommend going early. I went just after it opened at 8am on my bike and had the run of the place... More

I went here with my parents and sister. It was really neat to see the ruins. It was so hot though. Guys were taking off their shirts and using them to ward off the sun. I would take a small umbrella or a sun hat if I were you and water. There is no shelter from the sun during the... More

My family and I visited the Mayan Ruins three days ago. I would suggest to hire a personal tour guide (for $20) and give yourself at least 1 to 1 & 1/2 hours to visit the ruins. Note- if you plan to use a "go pro camera" they will charge you $3.00. Amazing history. Yes, I would recommend to visit... More

Visited while on board Allure of the Seas, had a great guide, Patty, she was able to keep it interesting and provide a good amount of information about the site. Ruins are very interesting and the scenery is wonderful. Definetly need bug spray and sunglasses. Beware of the shops, they are very pushy and yoy have to negotiate anything you... More

This was a very beautiful and peaceful place to visit and walk through. Give yourself at least an hour and note they close 4:30pm.
