Explore the Mayan ruins at San Gervasio and toast the adventure with an enlightening tequila tasting. Although the ruins are comparatively small, they are significant as the site was once a pilgrimage destination. Worshippers came from all over the Yucatan peninsula to honor Ixchel, the Maya goddess of the moon, love and fertility. Excavations that began in the 1800s have unearthed several archaeologically important structures, including a square vaulted tomb, a large sanctuary known as the Upper House and a temple with red handprints on some of the interior walls. Centuries-old white stone roads and paths connect many of the buildings. The guide will describe the Mayan culture that thrived at San Gervasio until about 1600, when smallpox from the Spanish conquistadors devastated the population. To complement the experience, you will have the opportunity to sample three varieties of premium tequila infused with tropical flavors.

• Walk through the ruins of a Mayan pilgrimage site dedicated to the goddess Ixchel.
• Sample three flavored tequilas made on the Yucatan peninsula.
• Enjoy a panoramic drive that focuses on the natural beauty along the coast.

• Dress in weather-appropriate clothing.
• Wear flat comfortable walking shoes.
