Cozumel's Planetarium Cha'an Ka'an Readies to Open
Posted Friday, August 7, 2015

Although Cozumel's newest attraction, the Cha'an Ka'an Planetarium
isn't slated to officially open until August 20th, I was lucky enough
to get a preview tour, lead by the Director, Dra. Milagros Varguez.

The new facility features an interactive museum room, including a
video game that simulates trading from various Mayan villages. The
Planetarium also has the only 3D theatre dome in all of Latin
America.

The auditorium is equipped with special inclined seats and
participants are provided with special 3D glasses. There is a film
featuring the coral reef, as well as a short film, created entirely
in-house featuring the movements of the stars and planets as seen
from a Cozumel night sky.

There are also 2 powerful telescopes located on the rooftop
Observatory. These telescopes can be programmed for a variety of
settings, including lunar observations, eclipses and to track
orbiting planets.

Hours of operation are
Tuesday - Thursday 9 am - 7 pm,
Saturday 11 - 10 pm and Sunday 11 am - 7pm.

The extended hours on Saturday are so that visitors can enjoy the
Observatory in the evening, as well as a meeting time for a planned
Astronomer's Club.

Admission prices are affordable, with the 3D theatre and Observatory
priced separately.

Pier Construction
Posted Tuesday, July 14, 2015

** Construction of New Downtown Pier Has Begun **

On July 10th, construction began on the placement of mooring slips next to the fiscal pier in downtown Cozumel.

The Manager of Coastal Development, Roberto Martin Flores said that the project began by placing precast segments next to the original pier of San Miguel.

Formal construction will begin soon.
The mooring of the San Miguel pier project involves the construction of two docks of wood that will be interconnected, as well as the concrete base to give it a secure structure. It has been stated that an estimated 12 boats up to 12 meters and 36 boats of up to 10 meters in length will be accommodated by this installation once it is done.

It is important to highlight that this mooring project in downtown San Miguel is being done with an investment of $16 million pesos, from resources of the Federal government and the State. It is estimated that by December this work will be 100 percent complete.
