  • This was so terrible, I did not even take any picture. :D we spent here around 5 min. Nothing to see here, we laughed when we saw this place. Everyone tries to sell you something, which is annoying, b...  more »
  • If you only have one day on Cozumel, trust me: skip this. It's a super small ruin, surrounded by a bunch of overpriced aggressive shops. There is a pretty little Catholic church sort of built around t...  more »
  • El Cedral is presented as one of the few places in Cozumel where there are Mayan ruins. But the reality is disappointing, for the ruins it is actually a tiny pyramid of 2.5 m high, glued against the Church, with no explanation of his presence, nothing. So it is little more than a small pile of stones. This a little central square of the village is surrounded by tourist shops. There is not much more to do... Entry to this site is paid, certainly very cheap, but even I find that it's not worth it. If your desire is to see real Mayan ruins and learn a little history, go your way. You can go for it at San Gervasio, Cozumel or, better, on the continent, where a real historical sites are present.

  • Not exactly as advertised! It is supposed to be a Mayan ruin, there is a small Mayan building right next to a cute Catholic Church. The shops have all the same things they have in the center of Cozumel for greatly reduced prices. What they need to do is market it as a discounted souvenir shopping destination. NEVER TAKE THE FIRST or SECOND PRICE! These people love to make a deal!
  • Mexican rural village with very nice people but no cultural interest. Most information I found previous to the visit, don’t correspond to the reality there. The maya “ruin” can only be seen from the outside and it’s a pile of stones with a closed little entrance, that probably was used for storage. The catholic church and main square have no relevant highlights. There is no arts and crafts that you wouldn’t anywhere else. SAVE YOUR TIME AND MONEY. It’s absolutely not worth the trip.
  • Loved the ATV Ride! and the cave diving.... The staff was amazing and very friendly. Had a blast!!!! loved the trails and the terrain! The tequila they offered was amazing!, smooth and tasty.
  • Technically there are ruins but the cheap shops are the only thing worth seeing.
  • Rented a car and went and got lost. Bought some Premium Tequila to bring home. Had a blast drinking Tequila with the locals! Gonna gove it three more star's! ***
