Long Description:
The monument commemorates a well-loved doctor who moved to the island in 1942. He was renowned for his dedication and often provided his services free. An anecdote told by our island’s historian relates how the night before he died in his sleep the doctor entered the cantina owned by Don José Cruz Bonastre and bought a round of drinks for all present, saying “friends, I want you to accompany me in a toast, for tomorrow I will be buried in the cemetery.” And, true to his word, he was dead the next morning. After he was buried, an arrow was placed on his grave marker pointing towards heaven and bearing the word “consultas” (consultations).

The inscription reads:
"El pueblo de Cozumel, fervorosamente ha levantado este monumento, a la memoria de su benefactor, el esclarecido médico Doctor Adolfo Rosado Salas. Cozumel, Q. Roo, año de 1944."

English translation:
"The people of Cozumel with much emotion have raised this monument, to the memory of their benefactor, the outstanding Doctor Adolfo Rosado Salas. Cozumel, Q. Roo, year 1944."
