Went to the Occidental Cozumel resort. Resort for a Day. Our second time there. Even better this time. On the way back we stopped at 3 Amigos for some drinks and apples before returning to the ship. Great duty free shopping!
We booked the Allura Catamaran cruise to Stingray City which was to leave at 11:15am. We got off the ship early, I was worried as to how long the tender would take. But they were quick so we were on the island by 9:45am. To the left is a holding area where other cruise lines had their tents and excursion reps. HAL did not have one, their reps were right were we got off the tender. As we waited we walked to the shopping center where I didn’t buy anything. But by 11am we were told the Stingray part was cancelled due to rough seas so we got on a taxi van and spent a few hours in 7 Mike beach. Calico Jacks.
Poured rain the whole time. We booked the Jewell Runaway Bay, through Resort for a Day. There were 8 of us from the ship and another family from another cruise. We sat at the bar and entertained ourselves as well, the staff were amazing and helped us make the most of the lousy weather. Jerk Chicken on the beach and lots of drinks. Island is so poor. Falmouth outside of the pier is not safe. Sad but true, lots of desperate people who need help.
