Beyond the breathtaking waters and ribbons of white sand is a land steeped in rich history and ancient wonders.

And at every turn, there is something exciting to discover and explore. From the majestic archeological site in San Gervasio to the rustic, vivid green church in El Cedral, Cozumel has many stories to share. And their origins go back to 300 A.D. when the first Mayans settled on the island.

Before there were vacation seekers, there were religious pilgrimages, as many women came to pay homage to the fertility goddess, Ixchel. Through every passing century, Cozumel became one of the most important sanctuaries in the Yucatan region. And the Mayan influence remains today.

But that is just the beginning. Let us take you on a guided tour and uncover the magic of the ancient Maya. You’ll soon realize why this is like no other island in the world.
