Let's start by explaining a little bit about Cozumel's Festival de Cedral. The Mayan site of “El Cedral” where this Festival takes place is just off the main road of the island, 10 miles south of downtown. It’s known as the location discovered by Spanish explorers on May 3, 1518 and site of the celebration of the Santa Cruz (holy cross) each year.
