HI, we will be at Cozumel from 6:30 to 2:30pm and will be renting a car from Avis which opens at 8am.
Do you think we will have enough time to visit San Gervasio and still have some time for the kids to play at the Paradise Beach ? approximately how long will the ride to San Gervasio ? Do you have to join the tour when you are get there ? Is it worth going ?
You should have plenty of time to do both. The ruins at San Gervasio are moderate...I and you don't really need a tour...we wandered around on our own. The largest ruin is way in the back...hike on the trail thru the woods about 10 min....a temple to the fertility goddess Ixchel. Lots of iguanas sunning themselves. You probably won't need more than 1-2 hrs there and from the car rental place the drive is no more than 15-20 min. Afterwards, you can continue on toward the East side of the island where there is a great place for an early and affordable lunch...Coconuts...amazing views!!!! Travel on toward San Miguel (one major road around the island) and stop at one of the beach clubs along the way (Paradise, Nachi Cocum etc) for a little beach time before dropping the car off. Have a great time!!!
