A HOTEl with history

The first Panamerican Airlines flights arrived to Cozumel Island in the late 20s, on the stop over of the Miami-Panama flight. The passengers surely admired it, but it was not until 1948 that a Panamanian freighter that ran aground on the eastern side detonated tourism on the Island. Mr. Charles Fair was sent to Cozumel to attend the legal matters related to this grounding and, pleasantly impressed by its beauties, spread the word of its attractions among his circle of acquaintances, which promoted the visit of the first tourists.
However, it was the marriage of Ilya and Elena Chamberlain, who arrived in 1956, who started with the tourist infrastructure. Enchanted by Cozumel and its natural attractions, they rented this property and started a lodging service with 6 rooms and a kitchen with the name of "Mayaluum" or Mayan land. This hotel operated until the early 60's.
PUERTO LIBRE still belongs to the descendants of the property's first owners.
