In Cozumel there are several Mayan sites located on the northern half of the island.

San Gervasio can be reached by following the sign leading from Cross Island Road; a gravel road leads to the entry, where you pay a modest fee. Once inside, you can wander through the four districts, the first dating from the Early Classic Period (A.D. 300-600), and the last from the Late Postclassical Period (A.D. 1250 -1500).

The majority of the structures of San Gervasio were used as altars and shrines and for governmental gatherings. While the buildings are not of the scale of other Mayan sites on the Yucatan Peninsula, you'll sense a certain mystique as you walk on the altars where ceremonies were once held in honor of Ixchel, the fertility goddess.
English-speaking guides are available.

San Gervasio was a sanctuary of the goddess Ixchel, drawing pilgrims from the entire Mayan world.
Its splendor began around A.D. 200 and its vitality endured until the arrival of the Spaniards. San Gervasio was a strategic point for the commercial and political development of its era and you can visit this sacred site today.

Cozumel Island has a large variety of attractions such as:

Cross Cozumel Island Road ends in the center of the eastern coast of the island. Turn south and drive along the southeastern coast, where you'll see a more rugged side of Cozumel. The area is virtually uninhabited except for iguanas and birds that make their home in the mangrove trees and scrub jungle. The coastline varies from golden beaches to limestone formations.

Farther south, where the road turns dramatically west, is El Mirador beach; here, you will find an unmarked dirt road that leads to the Celarain Lighthouse. Alone the way you'll see a small ruin called Tumba del Caracol, or "Shell Tomb". Don't miss the panoramic view from the lighthouse.

Following the main road west, you'll pass signs for Palancar Beach and El Cedral.
El Cedral is a small Mayan ruin. The dirt road at the Palancar sign leads to Palancar Beach.

After passing the turnoff for San Francisco Beach, you'll come to a sign for Chankanaab Lagoon.
Located just 10 kilometers south of San Miguel, this park charges a modest entry fee but is well worth a visit.
The park is open from 7:00 to 18:00

The snorkeling and diving in the lagoon are excellent, and four dive shops provide everything you need: equipment rentals, guides and instruction, including certification courses. In the park's Mayan Zone, you can see reproductions of Mayan housing and learn more about this ancient culture's building and farming practices.

Diving in Cozumel Mexico
[Cozumel Diving Map]

This is the dream place for all those who love diving. It is the largest island of Mexico of approximately 49 kilometers long and it is only an hour and forty-five minutes away from Cancun's Airport.
You can arrive at Playa del Carmen, the capital of the Mayan Riviera, where you take a ferry that takes you to the island in 35 to 40 minutes. Said transportation offers its service during the day, from 6:00 to 19:00.

Cozumel has 25 coral reefs that are located in the occidental part of the isle. Here you can go diving, depending on a knowledge profile: advanced, intermediate and beginner divers. The currents of the sea of Cozumel allows for "planned diving", that is, letting yourself go with the current.

For the divers with experience we recommend the Palancar coral reef, where the depth varies between 6 and 12 meters and between 30 and 37 meters, in its deepest points. Every time you go diving, make sure that you are going with certified guides of the Association Divers International (PADI).

The coral reef in Punta Sur is very attractive because of its marine life diversity. The immersion takes you to depths of up to 38 meters. It is a wonderful experience to be in the depths of the Mexican Caribbean.
