Popular destinations include ancient Mayan temples on the north side of the Island; the sanctuary to Ix- Chel -the fertility goddess- in San Gervasio and the Museum of the Island of Cozumel, with its colorful displays of underwater reefs and other Island treasures.
History of Isla Cozumel
Mexico's Isla Cozumel (or Cozumel Island) derives its name from the Mayans who believed the island to be a sacred shrine. In Maya, Cuzamil translates to "land of the swallows," a reflection of the indigenous birds that grace the landscape.
Spanish explorer Juan de Grijalva made a peaceful stop on the island in 1518. The visit was followed a year later by the infamous Hernán Cortés. The conqueror proceeded to destroy many of the Mayan temples. By the time Cortés left Cozumel, the ancient civilization lie in ruins.
