The Cannon House has historical significance. This is some prime real estate with a fascinating story behind it. It was originally built by Akumal's founder and famous archaeological explorer, Don Pablo Bush Romero. The cannons were among numerous items recovered from Spanish wrecks found by Don Pablo and his team during their search for shipwrecks along Quintana Roo's Caribbean coastline. These excavations represent some of the first maritime archaeological projects ever accomplished (circa 1950-60's) and led to the creation of CEDAM; a society dedicated to Conservation, Exploration, Diving, Archaeology and Museums; also founded by Don Pablo. The society still exists to this day and hosts a CEDAM museum located in Puerto Aventuras, 15 minutes north of Akumal.
