COZUMEL MAYAN RUINS TOURS
Our Advice: If you are staying on Cozumel, you won't
want to miss a day trip to Chichen Itza. If you are on
a cruise ship, you wont' have time for that, but you can see
San Gervasio instead.
ARE THESE MAYAN RUINS TOURS ALL ON COZUMEL?
A: No, the largest and most impressive ruins sites will require
a ferry ride to the mainland. However, San Gervasio, the largest
site on Cozumel, does not require a ferry ride - it's right in the middle
of Cozumel island.
I ONLY HAVE TIME FOR ONE RUINS SITE - WHICH SHOULD I SEE?
A: Chichen Itza was just named as one of the 7 wonders of the world.
Every visitor to the Yucatan should see this impressive site.
Tulum is smaller, but it is much closer (45 minutes vs. 2.5 hours),
and has a breathtaking clifftop setting overlooking the Caribbean
Sea. Coba is the largest site, but is only partially restored.
It is the only pyramid that you can still climb of the three. If you don't have time to go to
the mainland, or are on a cruise ship, then still consider San Gervasio - the tour is an interesting
look at the Mayas, even if the ruins are not nearly as large or impressive
as those on the mainland.
