Fiesta De La Santa Cruz/feria Del CedralCozumelApril 28, 2015
Springtime FairView More >
El Cedral was founded in 1847 and its ruins were the first to be found by the Spanish. Today it is a small farming community famous for its country fair. The fair starts on Dia del la Cruz (Day of the Cross) celebrating when St. Helena found the cross used for the crucifixion of Jesus. The fair also celebrates the coming of spring. Farmers from across the Yucatan come for the music, food, dancing and bull fights. El Cedral is found six miles south along Costera Sur and then two miles northeast. A prominent sign near the Iberostar Resort leads the way.
