Freedom of the Seas in Cozumel, Mexico
Cozumel, Mexico, is a port of call for Freedom of the Seas.
The weather was wonderful! There was a gentle breeze and very moderate temperature which is welcome here. We remember some very, very hot visits to Cozumel.
We took a cab "downtown" to the plaza. No, that's not us in the above image. We were in the third row of seats in this van cab. Cost of cab fare each way for the two of us was $7. To keep things simple it is now $7 for every cab ride anywhere you want to go in Cozumel.
There are many street artists practicing their art and selling it on the spot.
And, of course, there are the bars. I have taken pictures of this one many times over the years. It is on the corner of the public square.
There are more shops than there are people shopping. This image was taken about Noon when in previous visits here there were thousands of people roaming the streets.
There were six cruise ships in port, yet the public square is nearly empty. People were either on tours or electing to stay on board at this port.
Current events in Mexico could be part of the problem for the store owners. Or, perhaps some of the cruisers opted to do their shopping at the stores closer to the ship.
We returned to the ship for lunch.
We will be in Cozumel again in two weeks when our daughter will be on board. More pictures to come!
