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 San Miguel cemetery is more than 150 years old, it can be divided into 3 sections where the oldest, starting with the small arch built at the end of the 19th century and known as the common grave, keeps among its tombstones the remains of those who made the history of the island; at the end of this section there are 10 tombstones of the 1848 repopulators where one of the most significant is that of Don Juan de la Cruz Rivero who died years ago.

Undoubtedly, the municipal cemetery keeps a lot of history of our island.
