VIVAS VALDÉS, VEUDI (2023). NOTES AND RESEARCH – HISTORIAN CHRONICLER OF COZUMEL. INTERVIEW CONDUCTED BY THE DIRECTORATE OF TOURISM AND ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT OF THE MUNICIPALITY OF COZUMEL

The post office was inaugurated in 1972 and remodeled in 2023, it has had 2 previous historical locations, the first one in the early 30’s in this same avenue a few meters from the corner of 2nd street north. Later it occupied a private building located on 1st street south at the intersection with 10th avenue. 

During the XIX century the maritime-terrestrial communication with respect to the mail was irregular and only depended on the civil authorities, it was until the time of the disappeared territory when apparently the first office worked approximately in 1932.

It is especially important to mention that regardless of the air mail that began to be used in the mid 40’s, previously it was only by sea the transfer of mail and valuables in general, which eventually were the responsibility of the shipping companies that have communicated with us at different times via Puerto Juarez, Puerto Morelos or Playa del Carmen to make connection with the city of Merida in Yucatan or Chetumal in Quintana Roo.

Nowadays the use of this service has diminished a lot due to the technology that allows us to communicate instantly to any part of the world.
