COZUMEL, Quintana Roo — One fish, two fish; red fish, blue fish; triggerfish, blowfish. Snorkeling is a prime attraction at this reef-ringed island off Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula. So, it’s something we didn’t want to miss when our ship docked here during a December cruise.
We also wanted to partake of some good island food and drink. And we didn’t have long. The ship docked around 8 a.m., and we had to be back on it by 2 p.m. Cultural immersion was out of the question. After trekking around ruins the day before, we wanted to spend this day cramming in as much relaxation as we could without having to waste time changing clothes and moving around the island.
