We anchored near Cozumel, an island off the coast of Mexico. We are floating near the Yucatán Peninsula – ancient home of Mayan civilization.

Today, there are (gulp) 9 cruise ships in port. Mexican tourism has done a good job marketing to the cruise industry!

Water sports, shopping, beach time and drive tours to Mayan ruins are all available. The ruins at Tulum, Cobá and Chichen Itza attract many visitors.

Back on the ship we attended an afternoon talk by Dr. Kathy Reichs, author of the Temperance Brennan novels and Producer and inspiration for the TV series “Bones”.
