Cozumel’s downtown fiscal pier, or “muelle fiscal,” recently celebrated 75 years of existence, according to the island’s official historian, Velio Vivas Valdés.   Although the official name of the pier is “San Miguel,” it’s commonly known as the “muelle fiscal” as a historical reference to the customs booth that once sat right at it’s entrance.   Although it was originally a wooden structure, when it was first built, back in 1903, the newest, modernist incarnation has it ranked amongst the best ports in Latin America.  It’s believed to transport more than five million passengers each year.
