The island of Cozumel, off the coast of Mexico, was our first stop on our cruise, The Carnival Glory. Known for it's all-inclusive resorts, Cozumel is about a 30 minute ferry ride to the mainland.
We decided to forgo the cruise lines excursions and book our own. We booked a day ( well, really a half day) at Mr. Sancho's All Inclusive Resort. We booked online before the cruise with Cozumel Watersports. For $50 per person we received all you could eat and all you could drink at the resort. It also included beach chairs, a swimming pool with swim-up bar and use of kayaks.
We took a taxi from the regulated taxi stand at the port for about $20 each way total for all 4 of us. We were greeted with a photographer taking photos of guests. We checked in and then found our spot on the beach. We had our own personal waiter, who was hoping for a good tip, that kept us plied with drinks or food from the menu. There was also a buffet set up for lunch, which was kinda meh, nothing special.
We spent about 5 hours at the resort - eating, drinking, hanging out at the swim-up bar, wading in the ocean and a couple of us got henna tattoos (just the cool ones). A short taxi ride back to the ship and we were back on board.
Would I do it again? Absolutely! I think I would order more off of the menu rather than eating at the buffet. But all in all, it was a very fun and relaxing day in beautiful Cozumel!
