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.

There are anumber of structures (mayan ruins). Rock paths connecting them. There are informational signs around. Not sure why but I kept getting the impression that they were RECONSTRUCTIONS that were being presented a real.

I visited San Gervasio in May, the site was very nice and the ruins were of intrigue. My girlfriend and I decided to go on our own with no tour guide and we were able to see the entire site within an hour. The main site/building was very cool with an ancient tree growing in the middle of the building.... More

Four of us asked for English speaking guide and we're blessed to get Angel. I had been here once before but learned so much more with this knowledgeable guide. As a history teacher he knows how to present the Maya story and answer questions with ease and enjoyment. We strongly recommend a tour guide. $20 for the four of us... More

Very interesting to view the ruins. Park is very well set up and well maintained. I suggest bringing mosquito repellant and sun screen. The bugs ate us alive! Also would avoid this on a hot day .... it is inland with little air movement so was stifling hot on a sunny day. Still a great attractions- just choose your day... More

This is the second time that we have visited San Gervasio. It is small in comparison to the sites on the main land, but has several interesting ruins.

The ruins were stunning,i highly recommend having a tour guide for it though. Overhearing other guided groups showed that we were missing a lot of the history by just reading the plaques. But so worth seeing and touching the history.

Knowing that the Mayan Culture is very old, its great to see a whole park of mayan ruins. The Park is very well maintained and the people responsible are very friendly. There are also stores that carry regional products worth to see. I will recommend you to use a good pair of tennis shoes to walk it.

You should go in sneakers, bring your beverage and go in long pants and long sleeve shirt; while walking through the trails you will get bit by mosquitoes so spray before entering the long paths. Only saw 9 Mayan ruins out of the 17 but once you see a few - you have seen them all.
