In December, Wilson and I headed out the door for our second annual cruise-this time on the Carnival Fantasy to Cozumel and Progresso, Mexico. Whoever invented the idea of a cruise ship really is a remarkable person-it feels like a city on the water. We just loved our cruise to the Bahamas last year, so we knew we had to go on another one.
On the blog today, I am going to let you have insight on just how much fun we had in Cozumel, Mexico-our first stop on Carnival Fantasy.
Our Cozumel, Mexico Highlights:
-Cozumel, Mexico has some of the bluest water Wilson and I have ever seen! You could clearly see your feet at the bottom! Last year when we went to the Dominican Republic, we were kind of disappointed by the blueness of the water there, because, it was actually more greenish in color. On a side note, NOT EVERYWHERE in the Caribbean has the blue water that one always envisions in their mind. Make sure you know that before choosing a Caribbean getaway.
-Our photoshoot with Conie Bravo was definitely one of the highlights of the whole trip. As many of you know, Wilson and I get a lot of pictures taken, because, I believe that every stage of life, including travel, should be captured in a way that makes you relive it over and over again. I have always wanted pictures of us running through blue ocean water-and, Conie gave us just that!
-Snorkeling is a must in Cozumel! Another aspect of the Dominican Republic that we did not like was our snorkeling expedition there. Literally we were broke newlyweds (I was still in college at Anderson University), and we paid one hundred and fifty dollars a person to see the same black fish over and over again in the green water. However, in Cozumel, it was awesome! The coral reefs, the fish, everything! And, we only paid fifteen dollars a person;) Plus, a five minute ocean-side message was included in that price.
TRAVEL TIP: When traveling in the CARIBBEAN, do not be afraid to bargin with vendors. They would always rather sale you something, than have you walk away.
