You don’t need to be a history buff to enjoy these ancient Mayan ruins. Located on the Northern third of the island, San Gervasio is an archeological site where Mayan women used to visit to pay tribute to Ixchel, the goddess of love and fertility. This site has an unusually long history, beginning in 100 BC and continuing into the 16th century. Many companies give tours around the site, but you can also walk around the ruins freely. The ground is uneven and rocky in many places, so make sure to wear durable shoes. Several small lizards and iguanas roam the site, so the squeamish might especially want to wear covered shoes. San Gervasio is surrounded by a jungle filled with lush flowers and foliage, so make sure to bring your camera to this fascinating site.
