Without a doubt , Mexico is one of the most exciting destinations to visit for everything it offers. However, there is only one place in the Mexican Caribbean that keeps the greatness of what the Mayan civilization once was, we refer to Quintana Roo in the Yucatan Peninsula.

It was precisely on the island of Cozumel that a 5-star resort inspired by the Mayan culture was built: Grand Park Royal Cozumel.

THE MAYAN CULTURE IN COZUMEL THROUGH TIME

Learn how this great civilization came to the island of Cozumel.

The Mayans were one of the main civilizations that developed in ancient Mesoamerica. The occupation on the Island of Cozumel spanned the Late Preclassic period (300 BC – 300 AD) being its period of maximum splendor from the 4th century to the 10th century, just when the Spaniards arrived on their land approximately 500 years ago.

The old name of Cozumel was Cuzamil, which means in the Mayan language: " Nest of Swallows" . It was an important settlement for the Mayans thanks to the erected temples of the Goddess Ixchel , goddess of fertility and the moon.

It was in the area of San Gervasio where the Mayans built pyramids, temples and palaces demonstrating their great architectural advance which consisted of using geometric characteristics
