I have to be honest … I wasn’t sure whether I would write this post about my trip to Cozumel. Don’t get me wrong, I had a great time! I just don’t want to be one of those people that shows photos of their vacation to anyone and everyone who will listen. But if a great great grandchild of mine someday looks me up to find out more info about one of their ancestors for a school project, maybe he or she will be interested to know that great great gramma went on a wild spree to Mexico with her daughters (well, maybe “wild” is stretching it just a bit).
I was just happy to have uninterrupted time with my girls!
We stayed at Sunscape Sabor in Cozumel and I was glad the resort looked like villas instead of a big hotel. Plenty of garden areas were included all around. So pretty!
This is the larger pool at the resort. The white building is an outdoor dining seaside grill. Sunscape Sabor is an all-inclusive resort (my first time at an all-inclusive) and I was amazed at how good the food was in all of the restaurants. The Patio restaurant at the resort served some of the best food I’ve ever eaten.
The water is crystal clear and the reefs are popular for snorkeling and scuba diving.
One morning we took the ferry over to the mainland to go see the ancient Mayan ruins of Chichen Itza. I took this photo of San Miguel as the ferry was leaving the dock. The boat was filled mostly with commuters going to work over in Playa del Carmen.
After getting off the boat, we had a little over a 2-hour drive to the ruins. The girls weren’t that crazy about the bus ride (even though it was air conditioned and we were served snacks) but I really enjoyed seeing the countryside of Mexico and am grateful we got to see the Mayan Ruins; the pyramid is one of the Seven Wonders of the World.
The loser of the sporting event would get their head cut off!
Not far from the ruins was the Ik-Kil Cenote where we went for a swim.
Those are vines hanging down on the right.
And yes, I would go back to Sunscape Sabor Resort.
It was hard to say goodbye to Cozumel!
