Favorite Summer Vacation Spot Blog Hop - Cozumel
Today, I'm participating in the Favorite Summer Vacation Spot blog hop, hosted by Lexa Cain. My favorite destination? Cozumel, Mexico. Specifically, the Scuba Club resort located there.
These pictures are from 1995, so we're talking ancient history, but I thought you'd all enjoy seeing the place, rather than me just blabbering about it.
This is a Scuba diver's paradise. You get up in the morning, have a traditional Mexican breakfast, and then head out on the dive boats for a little of this:
When you get back, you hose off your Scuba gear, hose off yourself, grab some lunch, and do a little of this:
In case you're feeling adventurous, you can take a little trip - either stay on the island to see the center of town or some ruins, or go for the ferry ride to the mainland and see this:
(This is Chitzen Itza, in case you don't recognize it. Very cool place!)
At night, it's time for a fiesta. On the beach. You might even try doing this:
Yes, that's me, taking a swing at the piñata. Let me tell you, I did an awesome job messing that thing up!
If you're not tired after all that, you might try doing a night dive. Another very cool thing. Or go into town and dance the night away at one of the discos. Let me tell you how crazy that can get!
When it's all done, you might grab a few hours of sleep. Then you'll get up and to it all again.
It's been a long time since I've been to Cozumel, but after four times there, I'd say it's still one of my favorite vacation destinations!
Here's one more picture for the road, just for those of you who like pictures. This one was taken at the Cozumel airport, and this is the group I went with in 1995. I am in the first row, third from the left, wearing a white shirt and black shorts:
I hope you enjoyed my favorite vacation destination. What's yours?
A little add-on: I didn't realize this was co-hosted by a lot of bloggers. They're doing giveaways, so be sure to check them all out:
