Travel Photo Thursday | Mayan Ruins

During my first cruise to the Caribbean, we stopped in several ports, Cozumel, Mexico being one of them.  Our tour guide/driver took us to the celebrated Mayan Ruins in San Gervasio, the largest of the 30 Mayan ruins in Cozumel.  It was nice to get a taste of history and learn how advanced that civilization was as far back as 2,000 years ago.  It felt good walking along the paths of such great people who contributed so much to the sciences that we benefit from to this day.

    Very cool photo! I’ve always wanted to see some of the Mayan Ruins (I was obsessed with archeology as a kid), but haven’t yet had the chance. Some day! 🙂

    nice photo, Renee. I loved visiting Mayan ruins in Mexico. I went to Chichen Itza — didn’t make it to Cozumel. Fascinating history.

      Catherine, I found out after the fact that Chichen Itza was the best of the Mayan Ruins.

    I loved Cozumel. We also rented a scooter and drove around the city. Was by no means the safest idea but it was a blast none the less. Thanks for the photo, brings back good memories. Happy travels.
