In pre-Hispanic times, the area was the ancient Maya port of Pole, an important commercial center and religious site. According to archaeologists, pilgrims came from all over the Yucatan Peninsula came to purify their bodies and souls in the sacred waters of the cenote (natural sink hole) and in ritual temascales (sweat baths), before journeying to Cozumel to worship Ixchel, the goddess of fertility.
