Cozumel Island is the biggest island in Quintana Roo state, is just in front of Playa del Carmen area. A lot of cruises arrived there in order to let their passenger enjoy a little bit of the beauty of the Mexican Caribbean.
Cozumel, best know as the second large reef in the world after Australia, you will enjoy a very different activities in the water that will meet any wish that you have. At Cozumel you can snorkel and see a lot of colored fish, you can dive and swim around sharks, you can sail around the island feeling the breeze in your face and the glorious view in your eyes.
You can swim with dolphins, manatees and also if you like the adventure in the jungle, visit the Chan Ka Naab park area.
Cozumel Island Visit
This time I visited Cozumel because my brother and his family were there as part of ports that they were visiting at the Disney Cruise. My mom was we me for Christmas and she was a little sad because it will be a Christmas without her grandchildren.
My brother send me an inbox by FB and told me that next day they will be at Cozumel that we ca spend a little time with them there.
So next day in the really morning, we drive to Playa del Carmen, Playa del Carmen is about 45 minutes from Cancun. After we leave the car at the parking lot (you can find a parking lot that charge for hour or for day, also you can park at the street, only in places that you are really sure that you can park).
We took the ferry to Cozumel (the ferry take 45 minutes) and wait for them at the restaurant inside the mall in from of where the Disney cruise land.
We enjoy a lovely lunch with the family and after that my mom and I took the ferry back.
Isla Mujeres Italian Ice Cream.
New thing to do at Isla.
In my last visit to Isla Mujeres, one of the things or change that gets my attention was the Italian ice cream stores; I saw almost one in every street at down town Isla Mujeres. Even you can find the typical Mexican ice cream street seller but is not “bolis” or “garrafa mexican ice cream” what he is offering, he offer Italian ice cream.
I’m not complaining, I love ice cream, and this was delicious! It is just something that I notice. You can ask for a little taste before decide between all the good flavors, for me the mango and vanilla was awesome. If you buy your ice cream at the street little cart you can choose between 2 or 3 flavor but if you go to one of the stores, you will have a lot of flavors to choose. What is bad? That every ice cream store is different they are not a chain brand, they are family home made ice cream, so you need to visit at least 3 to taste and know the difference between them and then decide which is your favorite.
A lot of posts that I had read in these days said that they love to go there because there is always a handsome Italian guy, but I really don’t remember that, I remember that every taste that they gave us I love it so I decide to have one double scoop cone, I remember that the cone was made right in the moment so it was really crispy and I also remember that I didn’t walk to much when my cone was gone because I eat it to fast.
