Default Mayan Ruins in Cozumel suggestions please!!

Does anyone know if there are any Mayan ruins in close proximity to the pier in Cozumel? I would really like to see some, but really do not want to spend my entire day on one excursion.

Thanks!
Michell

I really don't think there is much to see in Cozumel, you probably need a full day to go to Tulum or Chichen Itza (if they still even offer that one). In my opinion, it is worth it to seeChichen Itza, it is remarkable. Cozumel is OK, is you want to snorkle or scuba, but otherwise its pretty quiet.

Tulum is unbelievable but it is a very long ride.

Yes, there are Mayan ruins on Cozumel in a park/reservation at San Gervasio. These ruins are not as extensive as the ruins in Tulum, but they actually are more significant because the island of Cozumel is a sacred place in the Mayan religion. Most ships have a 1/2 day excursion that goes there, and may also include a folkloric show in San Miguel de Cozumel. The ship's tour is the best way to see these ruins.

I agree with Paul. If you really want to see ruins while in Cozumel, research Tulum, however there are private air operators that fly into Chitzen Itza at about $300/person. Expensive, but still cheaper than planning another trip there to see ruins.
