English marker text and translations:
In 1511 a Spanish group of shipwrecked people arrived to Yucatan. Two of them were alive when Hernan Cortes came to Cozumel in 1519. One of them Jeronimo de Aguilar got to know about this event and decided to join his people again and served as an interpreter to the conquerors. The other shipwrecked Gonzalo Guerrero
who was integrated to the Mayans preferred to stay with them and founded the first Mexican mixed race family by marrying a Mayan woman.
The Mayan religion, polytheist, was a theological conception based on astronomy calendar and nature. For three days, the Spaniards skirted the island and on May 6, 1518, arrived at this good port, now known as San Miguel de Cozumel. Thinking they would find resistance they arrived armed, however they were received in peace. With wonder they admired the first stone building they had seen in the New World. When the crowd of children of the earth multiplied, the white gourd, the incarnate flower was Cuzamil. Chilam Balam ... a prehispanic text.
