Cozumel Hard Rock Cafe pin

Cozumel Hard Rock Cafe pin

This pin is from the Hard Rock Cafe in Cozumel. The fierce Mayan depicted relates to the very name of Cozumel. Once a major Mayan center, the name “Cozumel” derives from the Mayan word “Ah-Cuzamil-Peten,” meaning simply, “land of the swallows.” So once you get some of our fine food and drinks in your gullet, you’ll be in excellent keeping with ancient Mayan tradition! Located just off the Yucatan coast on Mexico’s largest island, Cozumel offers Mexico’s best diving, beautiful coral gardens, and some remote reefs where you can spot dolphins hard at play. [Note the dog depicted on the pin, in the colors of the Mexican flag.]

The island is also good for bird watching (just don’t look up!), but you can more easily check out the wildlife inside Hard Rock, where for years they’ve been cataloging and preserving rare rock ‘n’ roll artifacts, keeping them as primed as possible in their natural state. The unique Mayan architectural style makes this one of the most beautiful Hard Rock Cafes in the world, and complementing their numerous rock objects is a superb ceiling mural depicting a vast underwater setting. In fact, this mural is so realistic you may never need the actual beach, but if you do venture out, just so you can say you did, you’ll probably enjoy it. All beachin’ aside though, the choice for Mayan culture in the new millennium is the Hard Rock Cafe Cozumel!
