San Gervasio is an archaeological site. This area is a portion of the Maya civilization. It is located in center of the island of Cozumel. The ruins were once a center of worship to the goddess Ix Chel (meaning “She of the Rainbows”): who was believed to be deity in fertility, medicine, and weaving. Maya people would travel to the site and make offerings at certain times of the year. Many of the structures have roofs less than 4 feet tall and include inside stone walls and outside columns. The reason for the shape of the structures and roofs remain a mystery as they were constructed by wood and straw when in it was in its original condition. It is also thought that further wood and straw huts did surround many of the buildings, mainly the Plaza Central. San Gervasio is a federal and state park.
The ruins and the many roads to and from each area are overgrown and there are iguanas of every size some reach over 4 feet long. The roads are the only areas not completely shaded by the rain forest that surround the ruins. Iguanas sun themselves on the road throughout the park, and are adjusted to the presence of humans.
