San Gervasio Mayan Ruins

Date of Visit: September 29, 2014

Mik has long been interested in the Mayans. Thus, while we knew the ruins were not likely to be very accessible, we decided it was worth trying to see as much of it as we could with him. There are two entrance points with the first being basically just a shopping area for $5 per person and then the next being the ruins for $4 per person. They only take cash and thankfully Mik got in free because we ended up only having just enough cash for three people.

The first area has ramps to the left of the buildings to access the area and then get back to the ruins area. The ramps aren’t that great and are rather steep; but very accessible compared to what you end up going through in the ruins area.

In the ruins area the ground is definitely uneven, but there is a decent amount of the sidewalk style path that is not too bad.  The pathway does have steps at points, but only one at a time. However, there were a few places that were definitely rough with big rocks to maneuver through. One of the roughest adventures we have done in a long time, but totally worth it.

Mik had a great time exploring what we could. Not sure how much we really missed, but we definitely saw enough in the hour we were there and left more because it was hot and humid and Mik was tired of getting bit up by mosquitos rather than because we had explored everywhere we could get Mik to.
