Cozumel’s traditional sun & dive resort surrounded by ocean, gardens & jungle
The political and social surroundings coupled with the natural gifts of Cozumel made it a stunning paradise, a magical island and a little piece of heaven in an unexpected place; in the reach of my hand. Behind my house, there was a tropical jungle surrounded by mangroves and freshwater springs, where small deer ran free and spider monkeys rocked between the trees trying to avoid attacks from ocelots, alligators, wild boars and other predators. The island was host to a plethora of native and migrant birds: flamingos, parrots, parakeets and swallows. Millions and millions of beautiful swallows inspired the name of Cozumel, or Cuzamil “the island of swallows” derived from the Mayans.
