Not In Jersey: We Went to Cozumel We Went to Cozumel - Not In Jersey

We Went to Cozumel

Tuesday, January 28, 2014

Our second stop on our Disney Cruise was in Cozumel, Mexico. Cozumel is an island known for diving and snorkeling, but we’d covered the sea life part of the trip in Grand Cayman, so we arrived in Cozumel without specific plans. In the morning, Dave and I ventured off of the ship with just Simon, leaving the other kids in the kids’ club on board. We wanted to see what was out there before taking the kids with us, but Simon didn’t want to go to the kids’ club, so he stayed with us.

We walked around a bit and Simon fell asleep. We decided to hire a taxi driver to take us around the island and check out the beach later that afternoon. The first stop our driver brought us to was a tequila factory, where we were taught how tequila is made. Then they wanted us to buy some, but we didn’t.

Then it was on to the beach. I hadn’t wanted to spend very much time at the beach, but the water felt great and the kids love playing in the sand, so we probably could have stayed longer than we did!

The next stop was this little shop where I assume our driver would have gotten a commission had we bought anything.

Instead, the big kids and Dave decided to walk to this Mexican flag.

Next we stopped at a small area of Mayan ruins.

And then back to the port. In case you were curious, there’s a Starbucks there.

And that concludes our trip to Mexico! I’ve been to Baja before, so it technically wasn’t my first time in the country, but it’s still fun to say we’ve been! Have you?
