We attended mass and a baptism at La Iglesia de San Miguel. The music was beautiful. It is not a grand cathedral but a more typical Mexican church but charming. If you are looking for a church to attend while on vacation, we felt very welcome at San Miguel. Of course, the service is in Spanish.

If you have never seen an old church before, this is a good place to start. All subsequent ones will seem spectacular by comparison.

While looking for a specific restaurant, visiting Cozumel for the day..I accidentally found this perfect little church, and was drawn inside. Had to stop for a moment to take in the quaint beauty. So peaceful. Didn't take pictures, it just didn't seem right at the moment. But it was enough for me and my own memory. Historical..a must see.

We stumbled on this church while looking for a bite to eat and some wifi. I love Old churches and stopped in to see this one. The architecture is very nice and the feeling is so calm inside. There are some very nice statues and plaques to see and read, and it never hurts to put in a small donation... More

We were walking around the town and stumbled upon this church. I didn't go in as I thought it would be rude to take pictures. But it looked like it has a lot of history.

If yu're in historic downtown Cozumel, you have to walk into this church. The statue of St Michael the Archangel (patron saint of the island) is on display. Supposedly it was brought over by the Spanish in 1512±

The San Miguel Church is a typical Mexican church . We stopped by the church while visiting the village of Cozumel and at 2.H00 of the afternoon , there were 7 people praying ! It was quiet and very relaxing after the chaos of the Main street and the buzz of the markets. The church itself is very nice and... More

I traveled to Cozumel in August 08 and wanted to let people know that the posted mass times was not followed on Sunday. The mass 9am mass didn't start until 10am. There were more than a few people there at 9am that looked like tourists so I would guess that I was not the only person to be misled. On... More
