Cozumel, Mexico

January 21st, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments


If you love crystal-clear water and love to snorkel, scuba dive, swim, and deep sea fishing, then Cozumel, Mexico is the place to go. This great water sports island in the Caribbean is located off the eastern coast of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula. Cozumel is a tourist destination for those that love to scuba dive, snorkel, and all water sports. It is also known for its balnearios, which means a seaside resort with all the amenities such as lifeguards, water toy rental, and more. It is also one of the nine principalities of Quintana Roo. San Miguel de Cozumel is the main town on the island.


Cozumel is Mexico’s largest Atlantic island measuring 30 miles long and 9.9 miles wide. Cozumel lies some 12 miles off the mainland and 37 miles south of Cancun. Cozumel is a flat island based on limestone. This resulted in a karst topography, which is a landscape that is shaped by the dissolution of a layer or layers of soluble bedrock, such as limestone. Less than 49 feet above sea level, you will find the highest natural point on the island.

The mainland cenotes, deep water filled sinkholes, can be explored by swimming, diving, and snorkeling. Qualified cave divers with the proper registration only can explore the other cenotes found on the island. The 5th largest underwater cave in the world was discovered there in 1990. Scuba diving is one of Cozumel’s main attractions due to the healthy coral reef marine communities, which is home to several freshwater species. It is a regular stop now on Caribbean cruises.

You will find more than 90 restaurants on the island. Many of the hotels have amenities such as a swimming pool, a dive shop, and private docks. You can also enjoy other water sports such as parasailing and kite surfing. In addition, a tourist submarine will take you 100 feet below the surface and two dolphinariums to visit. You will find several blocks of stores selling Cuban cigars, t-shirts, tequila, and other inexpensive souvenirs where the cruise ships dock.

On the island, you will find a small permanent Jewish community and in 2009, a Chabad House was opened for them and the many Jewish tourists. There is also a kosher restaurant and synagogue nearby. All manufactured and food supplies are shipped from the main land, and water is provided by a seawater desalinization facility.

The restaurants offer a wide variety of food, such as Italian, seafood, international, Mexican, Asian, and regional. If you want to try something different, have a breakfast taco. On the island, you will find many spas to help your body relax and they even offer a couples hot stone massage in one of their world-class spas.

Cozumel has an international airport that you can fly into, or you can fly into Cancun and take a small plane to the island. Hotel prices vary and depend on the type of hotel you want to stay at. One hotel that is a resort and spa costs $413 a night. If that is too expensive, you can find hotels starting at $80 a night. One hotel costs under $50 a night. It is off the beaten path and the employees do not speak much English.

    Because of this capability, this equipment is mainly used
    in drainage cleaning where solids have already mixed in with the fluids.
    Pipes and fittings are often made of the same base material such as copper,
    steel, polyvinyl chloride (PVC), and chlorinated polyvinyl
    chloride (CPVC). Many of the Earthships have propane tanks for cooking and
    a backup hot water supply; these are the only
    utility bills.

    When getting rid of drain clogs, avoid using chemical cleaners.
    It is necessary to wisely choose carpets to be placed in a room so that they can add color,
    style and warmth. These microbes will settle in the tank and digest the waste in the tank.

    In just a few days, you can have your shop up and running with Zen Cart.
    No software to buy, no code to learn, all you need is to be a
    little Internet savvy and know how to click your mouse. Once each item on the list of services is defined, select all of the individual items for that
    list, click the Home tab on the ribbon and choose
    Bullets again to turn the bulleted list formatting back
    on for that block of text as shown below:.

    The King Post is a board that runs directly vertical from the top of the bottom chord to the underside of the
    top chords where they meet in the center of the shed.
    It is definitely much safer than wood garages and allows lower insurance costs as well.
    Songs like For Whom The Bell Tolls, Fuel, and
    Ride the Lightening are simply so electrifying that security and venue personnel were bobbing their heads to the
    hard-hitting riffs even as they assisted fans, and when James shouted ‘you sing it.

    Hey, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog site in Ie, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, great blog!
