Mexico and Cozumel

The port on 

Cozumel

 island. The liner shown below is the 

Celebrity Silhouette:



Nine ropes hold the fore of the ship and the same number of ropes hold the back of the ship. The reasons is because the port is not equipped with special structures to protect against waves and storms. If the wind and waves are strong enough, the ship will be pulled away from the dock.

The Carnival Paradise:

The port has its own territory, requiring a passport check upon entry.

 

The waterfront near center of the city is almost 4 miles (7 km) long. Traders sell homemade souvenirs along the way:

The

coastline.

Below is a local lighthouse. The distance to continental Mexico from here is about 6 miles (10 km).


A lot of unfinished building are scattered across the island yet still put up for sale. The way the price for a 3329 square foot (300 square meter) apartment is roughly $400,000.




The local supermarkets accept both American dollars and local currency.


Souvenir shops near the port:

Hand woven bags are sold for $5-10 compared to the same bags in New York that sell for $30-50.


Original cowboy boots sell for $100 minimum. 


Back onboard the ship.


The ship sails to another island in the Caribbean.
