Mexico Vacation: Cozumel, Part 3
The second week we stayed at the El Cid La Ceiba boutique resort on the island of Cozumel, also highly recommended. The first photo shows the ferry terminal at Playa del Carmen, from which we caught a ferry to Cozumel. The second photograph shows the resort from the dive boat dock and the third from the tower top floor. The fourth photograph is the view from our condo—different cruise ships, one to four a day, disgorged passengers every morning and sailed away every evening. We snorkeled almost every day we stayed there.
On the one day it rained, we took the Atlantis Submarine over 100 ft deep to view the outer Chankanaab reef. The fifth photo shows the submarine, the sixth shows me going “down the hatch” and the seventh and eighth show the underwater sea life, that even beg for sustenance! On a different day we explored the town of San Miguel and lunched at Margaritaville. The seventh and eighth photos show Neil and I with our tropical beverages there, but notice that we eschewed the balloon hats. The last photo is of me on the Carnaval stage set up in the main square.
