Mexico Vacation: Cozumel, Part 4

Our biggest adventure on the trip was swimming with dolphins at Dolphin Discovery in the Chankanaab Park. The first photo shows me getting acquainted with a 20-year old dolphin named Ixchel, named after the Mayan fertility goddess. The second photo shows her giving me a belly ride and the third shows her pushing me on a Boogie board. The fourth photo is two male dolphins putting on a show for Neil’s group. While at Chankanaab, we enjoyed the best snorkeling on the trip, including spotting a three-foot barracuda! The fifth photo shows a fish swarm, the sixth shows some fan corals, the seventh is me in my snorkel gear, and the eighth is Neil in his.

The ninth photo shows us with our 1.3 pound lobster tail dinner at La Perlita the last night of our trip, and the last photo shows us right before we left for the airport with rough seas spraying the rocks behind us. What a great trip!
