I apologize for the odd and irregular picture dispursements and size, I am new to this travelogue site and I am having a difficult time mastering it. All pictures were taken by myself, except for those I am in. I hope you enjoy them. I also want to add that this trip was not only incredible because of what we saw and where we went, but because of …

Cruise with the Bestie

A travel blog entry by travelindan



It was nice having a great day with her and leaving the country with a good farewell to all my friends and family. This will be an adventure to remember for sure. It will be probably about 2 weeks until my next blog unless I find some free wifi at one of the islands along the way.

I'm looking forward to Day 2 on the ship, Cinco de Mayo! Ayyyyyy! Until next time guys! Stay thirsty my friends!


A Day of Surprises

A travel blog entry by davidandmaria


... the Yucatan's only deep water port for the cruise ships, an airport (which even has direct flights from Europe) and a hotel zone to rival Cancun and Playa. It is also Mexico's largest island, so in summary, completely opposite to what David thought.

We weren't hanging around in this bustling wee town anyway, we were straight into a taxi heading for the marina just a short drive from town. 'Anita', our boat, ...

... exploring the beautiful world below. The water was so nice and warm and it was the best snorkelling I have ever done! The reef formations were incredible and the curious fish seemed to follow our lead. During the day, the highlights were that we saw 4 or 5 turtles casually swimming along the reefs and two massive lobsters (which I have never seen before.)


Cozumel's dolphin swim and ride!

A travel blog entry by momentsintime


... first hand these mammals while gently touching their velvet skin.

Before entering the ocean cove, I was directed by one of the knowledgeable trainers to a station to be briefed about the dolphins' behavior as well as the basic guidelines of the program.

The first part of the program was conducted on a waist deep submerged platform. ...

    Great vacation


    My husband and I just returned from a Christmas vacation at Cozumel and will definitely plan to return for next year here! We loved it!

    Great Place


    The El Coz was a nice place to visit. We had a great view and a great room. We were put in the newer building which i belive was built in 1999. The rooms were clean, the beds were firm but good. I was very dissapointed in the food. It was terrible. The outdoor resturant was bad, the inside restaurnat was better but not great. The gift shop is expensive for what you get! A can of pringles worked out to like $5. The facility was kept clean. Service from the staff was great, always willing to help you. After the 3rd night, after eating this kind of pasta i was sick. I did not drink tap water, nor eat of the premices. There is a golf course tight across the road from the resort, which was not finsihed by the time we got there. Good place, but would not go back because of the bad food.

    Most relaxing vacation I've ever had!


    We stayed at El Cozumeleño from 10/6 - 10/13, 2002. We had a GREAT time! However, let me preface my review with this: If you are used to staying at places like The Four Seasons, or Ritz-Carlton, this may not be the place for you. Cozumel, that is -- not the El Coz.

    Great time


    We stayed at the El Cozumeleno from 8/25/02 to 9/1/02 and had a fantastic time.

    The Best Vacation ever


    This resort is the nicest I'v been to in Cozumel (I have been to 4) A great place for adults and kids!!! We brought our 7 year old and our 13 year old and they both had a great time! While me and my husband went scuba diving my youngest play @ the kids center and my 13 year old wwent snorkling with a friend she met. Every other night they had a fun feast with a great stage show and hilarious games! Although some activities and couples were adult aimed my kids said that they can't wait to come back next year! Although the snack bar food wasn't the best, the wonderful pools, minigolf and very friendly staff made it the most wonderful week I've had in a long time. If you want nice staff and service this is the place!!! A few of the staff members made adorable stiched signs for my daughters and signed the back my 13 year old even got some of thier e-mail addresses and they keep in touch! This is a great place for couples and families, and the best vacation I've ever gone on!!!!

    We will not be staying at this hotel when we come back to Cozumel next year to become certified divers. Here's my top 10 reasons:

    El Coz, Good Value for the $$


    We just got home from 4 days, 3 nights at El Cozumeleno. We stayed on the "good" side, and had a really nice view overlooking the pool and the ocean. We stayed on the Mayan Riviera last year, and were a little disappointed that the beach wasn't quite as nice (just smaller, and more rocky). We walked down from the hotel and snorkeled...it was very cool. The food was not great, but about what we had expected. It was hard for us to get past the flies and birds everywhere in the outdoor facilities. My 11-year old was very bothered by it, and we couldn't find much he would eat. We both got sick on the last night, which made for a tough trip home the next day for me. He was better after by late morning, but I was sick for several days. Lots of people we talked to said they stayed there every year, and couldn't believe that we got sick, so it could have been a fluke I guess. My husband didn't get sick at all. Overall, I think it was a good deal for the price. If I hadn't had trouble with the food, I would rate a 4. We probably won't stay there again, but that's more because we like to try new places.

    Great place to go


    I went with a friend of mine and we had a great time. The service was wonderful and we liked the variety of food. We go to the El Cozumeleno every year.Thank you to Carlos!!

    A Great Trip!


    My wife and I just returned from a 5 day, 4 night trip to Cozumel, Mexico. We stayed at the El Cozumeleno Resort and we had a great time. From the time we landed in Mexico, until the time we left to return home, we had very good service from the Lomas Travel Agency and the staff of the resort. We had an excellant room over looking the ocean that was nice and clean. The food was average to good at the hotel. We look forward to going back next year!

    Not Bad, Not Great


    This resort, located at the northern end of the island, is actually "two" buildings in one-- an older section (about 30 years old?) and a newer section built in 1999. YOU DO NOT WANT TO STAY IN THE OLD SECTION. The rooms in the old section are smelly and riddled with mold and mildew-- plus the janitor's solution to fixing the problem is to splash large quanitities of Mr. Clean on the walls, which makes it smell as if you're sleeping in a broom closet. The first thing we did was ask to be moved. But when we complained at the desk, we were given excuses. On Day 2, when we demanded to be put in the new section or threatened to get our money back-- we were put in the new section. The new section is really nice. If we had been put in the new section, I would have definitely rated the place a 4. The food is good, and the tap water is drinkable. No one at the resort complained at all about Moctezuma's Revenge. The bar is open 22 hours a day. The snorkeling is nice. There's a place about 300 yards south of the resort where you can swim in clouds of hundreds of beautiful fish near a restaurant. The people throw food in the water to attract them...it was really cool.
