El Cedral

cedral-1-2Archaeological site in Isla Cozumel

This Maya ruin, a fertility temple, is the oldest on the island. It’s the size of a small house and has no ornamentation. El Cedral is thought to have been an important ceremonial site; the small church standing next to the tiny ruin today is evidence that the site still has religious significance for locals.

The village of El Cedral is 3km west of Carretera Costera Sur. The turnoff is near Km 17, across from the Alberto’s Restaurant sign. Look for the white-and-red arch.
