Cozumel, Mexico, was our first and favorite stop of our Caribbean cruise. The island thrives on tourism. As we learned on the tour we chose, 95,000 people live there, and tourism is basically the only industry. Four cruise ships were there the day we docked. The record, we were told, is 12.
Our excursion first took us to the San Gervasio Mayan ruins. I'm sure they were interesting, but Paul and I basically listened to half the tour each while the other took care of an active Edith.
She liked the beach we went to afterword better, Truth be told, I did too. We ate along the Caribbean Sea, feet in the sand. Edith loved playing in the water and sand. The water was crystal clear, warm and almost stereotypically blue. We easily could have spent longer than the 90 minutes allotted.
The bus rides to and from the city, ruins and beach were interesting for the terrific views and changing scenery. Back in the main section of town, we strolled along the main strip and headed back to the ship -- a great day in Cozumel. But next time: all beach.
