HISTORY OF COZUMEL.

The first Maya settled in Cozumel 2,000 years ago. However, during the classic period 300-900 A.C.- a time when priests were at the top of the social hierarchy in the Maya world and life revolved around religious ceremonies – Cozumel became one of the most important sanctuaries in the Yucatan region. Cozumel derives its name from the Mayan words Cuzam (swallow) and Lumil (land of ), which form the word Cuzamil (land of swallows). The Mayan word changed with time to the Spanish name of Cozumel. The Mayans believed the island to be a sacred shrine. Religious pilgrimages were common to the island especially from women who were either pregnant or wanted to get pregnant. They pay homage to the goddess Ix Chel, the deity of the moon, pregnancy and childbirth. It was a tradition among the Maya People in general to make the trip at least ossnce in their lifetime to the shrine of this goddess By 1200 D.C, in Middle America there existed an important long distance trade in which Cozumel was a key link. It was on this island where all kinds of merchandise arrived from far away places. Goods were temporarily stored before being sent in canoes to other distribution points. It was by 1518 that the Spanish explorer Juan de Grijalva arrived to the coast of the island on Holy Cross Day (May 3rd), named this land as “Isla de la Santa Cruz” and proclaimed the land as property of the Doña Johanna and Don Carlos Kings of Spain, The Spanish arrive, to Cozumel on May 06 making a peaceful stop on the island, received by the locals, exchanging gold and a variety of goods. Juan de Grijalva ordered the chaplain Juan Díaz to offer a mass on the same place that the islanders had a temple therefore on may 6th. The first catholic ceremony was held in México, at a location named by the Spanish like Saint John (currently named Las Casitas (little houses), where every year mass is still celebrated by the locals. The visit was followed a year later by Hernán Cortés. Cozumel was the first site touched by the army of Hernán Cortés in what is now Mexican territory, becoming the starting point for the conquest of Mexico.

TIPS OF TRAVELING ATM Machines They are located downtown in the banks Baggage Always tag your bag with your home address and the hotel/address while you are in Cozumel. It has been known in Cancun (stop over) for baggage to be delayed and sometimes as a result, shipped to your destination. Driving Be sure to understand the local traffic laws. The main hotel strip is a two-way road but the streets downtown are mainly one way. Obey the traffic rules and signs. During high season, the roads are flooded with taxis, scooters, bicycles and rental cars so if you plan to be on the road solo, be on the lookout. Parking Red lines on the street curve means no parking. Parking tickets are becoming more common. Cameras You'll definitely want to take pictures so don't forget your camera. Disposable cameras are also great and even waterproof disposable cameras for snorkeling. There are lots of camera shops. Water Cozumel has a very good purified water system. The large hotels have a complete purified water system but some of the smaller hotels do not. It never hurts to take extra precautions: drink only bottled water or purified water in restaurants. Sunscreen Just like anywhere else that's tropical, the sun is very hot in Cozumel and sunscreen is recommended, especially for children. Be aware that national ecological parks do not allow lotions in the water.

HISTORY OF COZUMEL.

The Mayan ruler of Cozumel accepted their domination peacefully. The conqueror proceeded to destroy many of the Mayan temples. By the time, Cortés left Cozumel, the ancient civilization lie in ruins. At the same time, an outbreak of smallpox killed thousands. By 1525 Francisco de Montejo made a request to the king of Spain to authorize the conquest and development of the Isla of Cozumel (Montejo was one of the captains that arrived with Cortez 9 years prior). Don Francisco de Montejo arrives to Cozumel On September 29 of 1527 and gave the Christian name of San Miguel de Cozumel. As the Spaniards became more familiar with the coast of the Gulf of Mexico, they realized they did not have to stop-over in Cozumel, excluding it as a port of call for Spanish ships. At the same time, as an immediate effect of the conquest, Mayan trade was nullified and the cult of the goddess Ix Chel suppressed. The islanders, deprived of their principal economic activity, were forced to depend only on agriculture for their survival. The mestizos founded San Miguel on the west coast and the Mayans settled at El Cedral. From mid-19th century to the beginning of the 20th, Cozumel´s economy boomed and it become an important port. The depression (1930´s) seriously affected the island economically, it bounced back during World War II putting Cozumel on the map. The U.S. built an air base for planes hunting U-boats in the mid-Atlantic and an airport was built. Drawn by the clear waters, frogmen came to train and returned home with stories of magnificent underwater vistas. Jacques Cousteau's declarations in 1960 about the richness of the coral reef surrounding the island made underwater enthusiasts aware of Cozumel's existence. By 1970, Cozumel's population quickly growth to 10,000 and today the island boasts a population of more than 75,000.
