Out of Vegas: Cozumel Seas

One of the main reasons visitors come to Cozumel, Mexico is to snorkel or dive in the Mesa-American reef system.  The barrier reef is the second largest in the world and runs 175 miles along the Mexican coast between the Gulf of Mexico and Honduras.  When Jacques Cousteau came to the region in 1961, Cozumel was mostly deserted.  The island had had a vibrant Mayan community before it was discovered by Cortez.  But the population was soon decimated by disease and nearly abandoned.  For many years...

The little-over two-hour flight from Dallas is taking us to Cozumel, Mexico’s largest island and one of the premier scuba destinations in the world.

A Most Enjoyable Weekend at the Park Royal Resort in Cozumel, Mexico

Right around the time the story broke about the swine flu outbreak in Mexico City, I was stepping off a plane in Cozumel for a long weekend to review the Park Royal Cozumel Resort, along with several other travel writers from across the country. Let me start by stating that the flu story coverage by the U.S. press was, at least to me, completely overblown and sensationalized by the media’s hunger to fill the 24-hour news cycle.  But that’s another story. The Park Royal Cozumel Resort is a...
