Today Nachi Cocom refers to the beautiful beach area on the island of
Cozumel located only a few minutes south of the downtown area. This area is named after Nachi Cocom
who was the regional ruler of Sotuta, near the present day city of Merida, during the Spanish
conquest period. Although he opposed the Spanish until the late 1540's Nachi Cocom was later
converted to Christianity and baptized as Juan Cocom. He ruled Sotuta until the time of his death
Three centuries later the state of Yucatan elected Felipe Carrillo Puerto--a progressive who
supported rights for women and indigenous Mayan people-- who was rumored to be a descendant of
Mayan ruler Nachi Cocom.
Nachi Cocom offers an escape from the hustle and bustle of the downtown area of
Cozumel. Pristine beaches, world class resorts, and water sports to satisfy every
appetite; and for those adventuresome newlyweds, perhaps a honeymoon in Mexico!
