You can also explore the Goddess Ixchel’s shrine at San Gervasio ruins, where she was paid homage, by the old Mayans who would come to Cozumel Island at least once in their lives as pilgrimage in request for her favors, which were in fact fertility and health thus enabling Mayans to continue to flourish in the Yucatan peninsula as well as Central America.

Food is also a reason worth travelling for, and if you find yourself in the Yucatan peninsula, where Cozumel Island is located you are sure to find yourself up for a treat!
