Peaceful and relaxing day by the beach in Cozumel, Mexico… Oh! How I dream to go back!
I hope everyone still enjoys our journal for our trip on Carnival Cruise. Now that we were on 3rd day of our trip, it was the day at port of call – Cozumel. I had planed today excursion to be at Chankanaap Park. We woke up a bit earlier than usual but still not early enough to see the ship arrived at the port. We got off the ship around 8-ish.. if my memory serves me right. This is one of the reason I want to start our blog.. Gosh.. where did my sharp as a knife memory go? I can’t even remember what I had yesterday. Anyway, off topic.. back to Cozumel..
After about an hour at the snorkeling site, we moved to the small beach area so Miss J and Mr. Z could really enjoy some beach time. I wasn’t impressed with that area. It was just a rope-off area with stagnant water near the restaurant. However, they did enjoy their time there building sand castle (not so much a castle but a lump of sand) and floating in the calm water. I understand that this park is more about snorkeling and swimming with the dolphin so I wouldn’t say that Cozumel doesn’t have nice beach. We just didn’t have a chance to check it out this trip. There will always be a repeat trip. :)
Later we moved to the pool area. I really like it. It’s next to the dolphin area so you could enjoy the show. The pool was really nice with the bar right there that you can swim up and enjoy your drink. It wasn’t busy at all. It was a nice way for us to rinse off our salty feeling from the beach. I wouldn’t mind stay there for a whole day. But Mr. Rojo was hungry and we didn’t want to mess with hungry man. :) We headed for lunch.
Before we headed out, we walked the botanical garden. We didn’t really slow down to see all the plant. The heat was too much for us. Yup.. even us. So we caught another taxi back to the pier.
We decided to head back to the ship and had quick shower before headed back to town.
There were a few places that we had in mind.. First I needed to check out Hard Rock Cafe to get my pin. I was rather disappointed at the pins collection this time around. I loved to get guitar pin of each city I visited. They had a good design that really capture the city. But this time, I didn’t see anything that give me Cozumel feeling. So I was on the fence about getting the pin there. Mr. Rojo suggested that we should check out another HRC in town which is about 10 blocks away.
Then we walked around the plaza a little bit before decided to walked to check out another HRC about 10 blocks away. If we had more time, I think it would be really neat to head to town and really experience the town.
Then we headed to Starbucks. Mr. Rojo couldn’t resist order coffee in the 90 degree weather. Crazy man! He got his Cozumel Starbuck mug for his collection. It was a long day.
