Before heading back to the United States, we had a day to spend in Cozumel. I’ve already visited Mexico a couple of years ago and I’ve seen the states of Quintana Roo and a little bit of the Yucatán Peninsula. Since our cruise ship docked in the port of Cozumel, what better to do than to have a brief look of Cozumel.
Cozumel is an island and municipality in the Caribbean Sea off the eastern coast of the Yucatán Peninsula. The municipality is part of the state of Quintana Roo with the likes of Cancún. The economy of Cozumel is based on tourism. The place is famous to tourists for scuba diving, snorkeling and its beaches and shoreline. We were in Puerta Maya and was exploring the stores and places around.
The port of Cozumel is so famous of cruise ships that everyday it is packed. It is busy with travelers. Stores are full of buyers and customers. It is indeed a good location due to the proximity back to the port of call in Miami, Florida.
It was brief but I was slightly disappointed. I was really looking forward to swim in Cozumel. My expectation was set so high that I got dissatisfied with my visit. I really thought they would have a swimming area like what Grand Turk has.
