Brief History
The Maya are believed to have first settled Cozumel by the early part of the 1st millennium AD, and older Pre-Classic Olmec artifacts have been found on the island as well. There are a number of ruins on the island, most from the Post-Classic period. The largest Maya ruins on the island were near the downtown area and have now been destroyed. Today, the largest remaining ruins are at San Gervasio, located at the center of the island.

The first Spanish expedition to visit Cozumel was led by Juan de Grijalva in 1518. In 1650 many of the Mayan islanders were forcibly relocated to the mainland town of Xcan Boloná to avoid buccaneers' predation. Later, in 1688, the rest of the island's population, as well as many of the settlements along the Quintana Roo coast, were evacuated inland to towns such as Chemax.

In 1848, refugees escaping the tumult of the Caste War of Yucatán settled on the island and in 1849 the town of San Miguel de Cozumel was officially recognized by the Mexican government.

The original airport was a World War II relic and was able to handle jet aircraft and international flights, a much larger airport was built in the late 1970s. This resulted in much greater tourism to Cozumel.

Scuba diving is still one of Cozumel's primary attractions, mainly due to the healthy coral reef marine communities. These coral reefs are protected from the open ocean by the island's natural geography. In 1996, the government of Mexico also established the Cozumel Reefs National Marine Park, forbidding anyone from touching or removing any marine life within the park boundaries.

The island was struck directly by two Category 5 hurricanes during the 2005 Atlantic hurricane season. Despite Emily being a powerful storm, it was the slower moving Hurricane Wilma that caused the most destruction when it hit the island in October. There was some damage to the underwater marine habitat. This included the coral reefs, which suffered particularly at the shallower dive sites, and the fish that inhabit the reefs. [info: Wikipedia]
