Cozumel 500 Years: Encounter of two cultures

This festival celebrates the cultural meeting that took place in May 1518, when Spanish ships arrived in a new land that they named the island of Santa Cruz, known by the Mayas as Cozamil, and where the first mass was celebrated in the territory of what today is Mexico.

The program includes a concert by the singer Lila Downs, a concert by the Symphonic Band of Cozumel, Mayan ball games.
