My cruise to Mexico was AMAZING!!! We cruised out of Mobile, Alabama, on a five day cruise to Cozumel and Calica. Calica is in the Mayan Riviera-- just south of Playa del Carmen. I loved both of these stops so much. And the cruise itself was so great! On the boat, Val and I met two wonderful ladies--We had lots of fun with Amber and Amy.
It was great because they were a lot like us, so Amber went dancing and to parties with me, while Amy hung out with Valerie-- since the two of them weren't into those types if things...That was great because there were several things I would have been doing alone had we not met them!
Cozumel was great-- We spent the morning shopping and the afternoon at the beach. I won a diamond and saffire necklace in a raffle at Cozumel-- it was set up by our cruise... and I still can't believe I won. When I tried to take my good luck to Bingo, it didn't follow. Oh well.
In Cozumel, we ate at a little place called Pancho's... I drank the best Margarita I've ever had there!
At the Calica port, we chose to visit the Mayan Ruins of Tulum-- or Ruines Mayas de Tulum. They were spectacular! And the water there was so blue--much different than the water in Cozumel. So we toured the ruins, then went swimming! And iguanas were everywhere-- just posing for people's cameras!
I truly love cruising and would love to continue this type of travel in the future. It offers so much fun at a very good price. I highly recommend it to anyone. I'm so glad for my cruising buddy, Valerie! Wonder where we'll go next?
