Default San Gervasio

Has anyone been to San Gervasio? How was it? Did you take a tour or go by taxi? El Cedral doesn't look worth the trip.

heymary;
I am anxious to hear about this too. We will be in Coz. in Feb. We were going to rent a car, and do it on our own. It is not real big, but seems interesting. Hope we get some info. from your question.

Ahhh...thanks for the memories. The first time I went to San Gervasio was over twenty-five years ago. There was no park and it was very primitive. A few trails, but if you explored you basically hacked your way around with machete. Lot's of iguanas, everywhere you stepped. Really felt as though you were in a dense jungle. The ruins are very small compared to any mayan ruins you would see on the mainland.

Of course now there is a park and a visitors center. Easy to get around. Not a lot or extensive ruins, but a nice place to visit. Once.

I'll second what Snoozeman stated...it's a nice little park.
I went there as part of an island tour through the ship. If one hasn't been to a Mayan site, I think it's worth a see for sure. It's small compared to some other sites, but has its own charm. To me it looks an Indiana Jones movie with the jungle growing into the ruins somehow.
For the record, I've also visited Tulum, Uxmal, Kohunlich, and Xunantunich Mayan sites, but still consider San Gervasio to have its merit.
Next year is Chichen Itza....so I guess I love anything Mayan.
