This was for the past three years this was one of my families favorite places. Then Mexico politics and greed (government type) took a huge bite out of it. Forced to charge a fee at the gate this place is now nearly empty. The merchants...More

We have gone to El Cedral several times in the past and found it quite charming. This year they are charging $2 per person to drive through. I didn't really mind paying considering that people drive through and there's probably wear and tear on the...More

They charge a fee to enter, but don't tell you that nothing is open on a sunday. Waste of time and money.

We stopped by Cedral on a Sunday, so all the shops were closed. Our tour guide did provide a very informed history of the place and how it came to be. There was a charge of 35 pesos to enter.

Literally a tourist trap. Outrageously priced shops with same merch as anywhere else on the island. Little temple is nice enough to visit, as was the pleasant little church next to it. Felt relieved after driving away

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 the Mayan ruin, and it was wide open, so...More

This is a good way to see a Mayan ruin if someone in your party is in a wheelchair, that being said it was ok to see. You enter into this little town through a toll and only have to pay $2 per person. You...More
