On the first Magic Cruise, we traveled to eastern Mexico and the beautiful port of Cozumel. I went on a bike ride with Bill and Jess from the port to a secluded beach area, where we snorkeled and then sat in the sun drinking and relaxing. It was amazing, and one of the big reasons I look forward now to this cruise each year (the other big reason is the people).

The water in Cozumel is the unbelievable shade of blue that I describe and the listener just doesn’t believe. Sure, it’s kind of an expensive tourist trap of an island, but the combination of tropical weather, super fun water adventures, relaxed and friendly people, and “small tourist town” feel is a home run for me.

If you have a chance to visit, especially as part of a leisurely trip like a cruise, do so!
