Cozumel, Mexico Overview

Sitting just off the gorgeous Yucatan coast, Cozumel revels in its mythic white-sand beaches and world-class coral reefs. Yet Cozumel is also the last stronghold of the Mayas, who settled the island in 300 A.D. Residents still speak Maya, and sometimes wear traditional Mayan clothing. Nearby stand the great pyramids and temples of their ancestors.

We got married at Mr.Sanchos on Monday. The location could not have been more beautiful. The staff was so friendly & helpful. The port had lots of shops & finding a cab was easy/reasonably priced.

We ported at Puerta Maya and took a cab to Mr. Sanchos. We paid $23 plus tip for 5 of us. The cab driver asked if we had a reservation because otherwise he said he probably wouldn’t be able to get it. So, make a reservation on Mr. Sanchos’ website. Once there we got wrist bands and were escorted to a table on the beach. We immediately were greeted by our waiter for the day. He did a great job with keeping the drinks and food coming as asked. The food was good. We never went to the buffet. I had one alcoholic beverage while there and it was good and strong. We mostly drank bottled water (the kids had soda) because it was so hot. The beach was clean and there were plenty of places to sit in both the shade and sun. My son (17) and I did a dive with Blue Reef Divers while there. They were professional and it was a great experience (we paid $180 for both of us). Check out their Facebook page. My youngest (11) and husband rented a jet ski and they enjoyed that. My 17 and 13 year old went parasailing while there too. The 11 and 13 attempted the inflatable water park ($12) but it was a lot of work climbing on there and they would just rather swim. We did not use the pools. My only complaint is that we just needed more time to do it all! I would say this is a party spot. We saw a man passed out in the sand because he drank too much and it was hot. Know your limit and maybe squeeze in a water in between drinks. Don’t forget to tip your waiter!! There were plenty of cabs outside Mr. Sanchos to take you back to port. We walked around the shopping area once back at port and found this underwater oxygen bar. It was $25/person but I asked if he would do 5 of us for $100 and he agreed. It was ok but not something i would do again. The kids enjoyed it. You can buy your pictures and they put them on a flash drive for you. They then gave us coupons for 5 free margaritas at one of the bars at port but we didn’t have time. We will be back in April and maybe use them then. Cozumel is beautiful and we never felt unsafe. Only complaint is WiFi was bad at Mr. Sanchos and I was never able to connect to call home and check on my baby.

One word "Beautiful"...... We shopped in the morning and did some sign husband re-proposed after 17 years of marriage!!! It was beautiful. We did the All-Inclusive Dolphin VIP Swim at the Aquarius and it was a bucket list item done. Man oh man, I cried and it was FANTASTIC!! As a VIP guest you have your own pool, personal chef and unlimited drinks.

Looking for suggestions for snorkeling in Cozumel. I like to book through Carnival. Looking for something that will not be too hard. My husband suffers from chronic pain and we try to book things he can handle. Thank you in advance.

I have to say that from the time we got off the Valor to when we got back on was amazing! We got a taxi to Mr. Sanchos which was fun. Everyone at Mr. Sanchos was friendly & the atmosphere was great. Food & drinks were awesome. The water was SO clear & gorgeous! Hated to leave but we did. The 2nd taxi back to port was great. I paid the driver but left my purse but didn't realize it til ee were about to start shopping. Went back to taxis & told someone there; he said my purse was found & waiting at the port which was a big relief. Everything was in it, vacation saved by honest people. We would definitely go back to Cozumel!
