Visit Sites of Interest in Cozumel
The ancient Mayans used to make pilgrimages to Isla Cozumel to venerate the goddess Ixchel. Today, divers, families and couples vacation in this destination for its fine white sand, a turquoise sea and for the variety of activities it offers.
1. South Point
Part of the jungle, between mangroves and white sand beaches and reef formations, is Punta Sur, an ecological park and nature reserve. In the park there are two lighthouses: one dating from pre-Hispanic times called “Temple of the Snail” and the more modern “El Faro Celarain”.
2. Chankanaab National Park
Custody flora and fauna representative of Quintana Roo, along a path with archaeological replicas of the Toltec, Mayan, Nahua and other cultures. In its gardens you will find more than 350 species of Cozumel plants. Snorkeling or diving are the options you have to contemplate the underwater sculptures of Christ and the Virgin in the Chankanaab reef, although you can also go zip-lining, with three circuits.
3. Corn Town
An interactive pre-Hispanic town where you experience the life of the Mayans and their traditions. Learn about the importance of corn, cocoa, feather art and henequen in this place where dance and music merge with the aroma of copal and Mayab drums.
4. Cha'an Ka'an
It is a planetarium. In Mayan it means "to observe" or "to enjoy the sky." It is intended to preserve the Mayan legacy and their astronomical knowledge that influenced their agriculture, worldview and culture in general.
Its design refers to a swallow, a symbol of the island and its curved shape makes it resistant to strong winds or storms.
5. The Archaeological Zone of San Gervasio
It is the sanctuary of Ixchel, the goddess of fertility and love, to whom Mayan women must pay tribute at least once in their lives.
