Cozumel, Mexico   May 2000

Sue & Bob, Jimbo & Shelly, and Brad went to Cozumel to the Reef Club, got a great $$ deal because it was May and the one time Sue didn't plan a beach trip 6 months in advance :-) so we got a good last-minute deal.  Airfare direct Denver to Cozumel was cheap and wonderfully easy compared to the day wasted and hassle and $$ of Miami to the Caribbean... very relaxing!

Very nice beaches, incredible snorkeling, had a good time (except for Brad who got Montezuma for a few days).  The snorkeling on our beach was so good that other clubs' snorkel boats would come to our beach and drop off folks to snorkel :-)

Club Med it was not, food was just ok, of 3 sunfish only 1 didn't leak, the 1 (and only) windsurfer had a nasty rough rope that had Sue's hands bleeding, oh well.  The kayaks were fun, swimming and snorkeling was great, and just laying on the beach and around the pool was wonderful, snoozing or reading a book...  One pool had a swim-up bar with good margs (if you knew to ask for the better tequila :-).  Free booze does win out big-time over Club Med, carrying those beads or paper tickets is a pain!  Reef Club food was "just ok" enough that we went into town a few times for dinner, something I'd never done in 3 Club Med trips (nor in Jamaica but Breezes food was better than Reef Club).

Sue, Shelly and Jimbo also tried parasailing and had an absolute blast!!!!

Sue's first tattoo :-)    

SueTattoo1.jpg (657453 bytes) typical shot of Sue with her eyes closed SueTattoo3.jpg (584695 bytes) pretty good for free-hand drawing!  It was a custom design even, pieces from other templates put together.  Lasted over two weeks, throughout Sue's Europe trip...
