Mexican Caribbean

The latest vacation that puts a smile on your face, all the way home. AND IT CAN LAST A LIFETIME!!!

How many Christmases have you not smiled in family photos? Do you spend your recreation time covering your mouth when you laugh? Do you find yourself lacking appreciation and confidence, because your embarrassed of your missing teeth?

´Carnaval de Cozumel, and how safe, is it?

It really doesn’t matter what you call it, carnival, carnaval, Carnevale, Karneval, or Mardi Gras it means a fantastic time. The Greek influence is there for all to see in the masks, dancing, drinking and costumes flaunted on the festive streets during the “CARNAVAL DE COZUMEL”.

Cozumel is a relatively calm island without many after-hours activities, perfect if you want to relax by the shore while drinking from a coconut, but not so much if you want to party ‘til the sun rises; an Island for families, for those that appreciate simplicity, comfort, and good times. I thought it would be a good idea if we discussed some of those great activities you can do with your family here on the island, specifically the ones I’ve tried out and can vouch for.

Located 22 kilometers to the south of the island’s downtown area, you can find El Cedral, one of Cozumel’s first settlements that is filled with history and beautiful traditions. El Cedral is known for being the oldest Mayan settlement at Cozumel, having been built in the year 800 AD, and despite the fact that most of Cozumel’s population lives at downtown San Miguel, there are still families that live there to this day. 

Picking the right option for your snorkeling experience in Cozumel can be beyond confusing, that much we know, but that discussion has been said and done(you can check this article for more information), today we’ll explain some of the differences between two of the most popular snorkeling activities here at Cozumel and also how to properly spot if you are actually booking the one you have in mind. 

It has been made clear multiple times that Cozumel is a place you can’t miss out on. Have you ever been on a cruise ship and thought, “I won’t go down in this port. It’s probably the same as the last one”? Well, I’m here to tell you you’re beyond mistaken. Sure, you can see clear waters in The Maldives, no doubt, and yes, you can eat Mexican food anywhere else in Mexico; that’s just a fact.

It still doesn’t compare with Cozumel.

Cozumel is the biggest and also the oldest island in the Mexican Caribbean. Cozumel is, besides, the highest of all. It was first settled by the Putun and it was an important chiefdom in what today is Quintana Roo.

Cozumel, in those days, was an especially important settlement for the Putun, that’s why we can find so many vestiges of this ancient culture here. Among these ancient cities, there is, of course, a Shrine to Ix-chel, goddess of fertility, abundance, and flood.

The beautiful island of Cozumel is a top tourist destination, welcoming over 4 million visitors annually. Of course, since the events of the past couple of years, the numbers have reduced, but we are expecting them to go back to normal this year with the resurfacing of tourism.

Now, deciding your holiday destination is the most significant part of planning for a trip, but choosing the best method of transportation is just as important, and that's why (as you can read in the title) we will be discussing it today.

Preparing for a memorable vacation is relatively easy, but choosing the right things to do with your family? That can be pretty tough, but worry not! For today I shall help you on your quest, and together we will make sure that whatever you decide to do, fits your needs.
