About El Cedral Ruins Cozumel

El Cedral is the oldest Mayan Ruins on Cozumel Island, dating back to 800 A.D. The Mayan village was once the capital of Cozumel, and the largest community on the island. It was discovered by Spanish Conquistadors in 1518, who tore down much of the Mayan temple, and then during World War II, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers destroyed more of it to make way for the island's first airport. Today, there is not much of this once significant Mayan temple remaining, but you can see a portion of it, and with the help of one of our knowledgeable guides, you can picture the community as it once existed - as the hub of Mayan life in Cozumel.
