2nd VGS GenealogyCruise
Quintana Roo, which includes the island of Cozumel, is Mexico’s youngest state, admitted to statehood on October 8, 1974. The largest community in the Cozumel Municipality is San Miguel de Cozumel. In 1986, when Karen and I first visited this place, the town was much smaller. Our ship moored in the Cozumel Channel between the island of Cozumel and Playa del Carmen on the Mexican mainland. We visited both ports by taking a ship’s tender. Today, Cozumel has three cruise terminals, each with large, modern piers.
Because, over the years, we have visited Cozumel more than any other port, it was another morning of Scrabble for Jim and Karen. I did take a few photos of the view from the ship. Also, here’s one from January 26, 2017.
