  • a great stop on our day trip to cozumel. We saw some local entertainment and made purchases from the street vendors  more »
  • It is not just a park, also is the beach to one side. This beach has public showers and bathrooms. The place, including the park attractions such as gardens, fountain, shops and sculptures is very complete.

  • I found it by chance and then everybody wanted to go there. We became the best photo of the entire trip. It represents the beginning of the new Millennium according to the Mayan calendar.
