Cruise! Oct 4, 2011 - Cozumel Bar Hop

In 8 cruises, I’ve never really booked an independent excursion outside of the one time I went to Roatan and we hired a taxi for the day. I was a little worried about booking a bar hop that would leave us with only a 30 minute buffer to be back to the ship before it set sail. With prayers said and fingers crossed – and the trust in all the positive online reviews, we booked with and sent our $20 deposits to strangers in Cozumel in advance of the cruise. 

When we arrived in Cozumel, we followed the instructions on our confirmation emails, which led us out of the port area, down the street, and to a 7-11 convenience store as a meeting point. Ryan and Dana were with me and Jason, and with this being their first cruise and first port – I think they were wondering if they’d make it back to the ship with all their organs still intact. I reassured them that there were hundreds of positive reviews for this tour and not to worry. I could see how they’d be a little concerned!  READ MORE...

Cozumel Bar Hop

by TINAREALE on MARCH 7, 2013
The last vacation recap. The last days. I can hardly believe it was almost a week ago. Apparently time doesn’t just fly when you’re having fun. It plain and simply flies regardless.
So, back to the last days of our cruise. Friday we had our last port of call – Cozumel, Mexico. I had been to Cozumel on a cruise before and really enjoyed it. My family and I mainly hit up the ruins and all the tourist area of the island, so I wanted to do something different when going with Peter.
Different we did. The Cozumel Bar Hop! This bar hop takes you to the other side of the island to visit four different stops. We opted for this tour for a few different reasons – the rave reviews, to see the other scenic side of the island, the foodie aspect, and for plain ole fun!
First stop on the tour? A cute little beach side bar called Punta Morena....

The Day(s)of the Dead is a Mexican holiday, a ritual where we honour our deceased relatives. Nov 1st is for the children who have passed, and the 2nd is for the adults. 

By tradition, the families of those who have died, set an offering (ofrenda) in their homes. This offering is a tribute to our dead, featuring their favourite meals and beverages.

Candles are lit and burn all night long, as it is believed that it will attract and guide their relative’s spirit to come visit their families, and enjoy the food and drinks that they used to like!

 of Cozumel 

Hello to all our hoppers

Let's start with some of our ancestors:

Cozumel means "Island of the swallows" in Mayan.

On this island lived priest and nobles, Ix-Chel was the Goddess. The  Mayans use to worship in Cozumel. In Mayan mythology Ixchel was the goddess of love, of pregnancy, of textile works, moon and medicine. The Mayans who lived on land had to come at least one time in there life to thank the goddes for the blessings they received.

When their children were born, The mayans would come to the Island with the goddess and then the Priest would show them which would be there profession or what they would dedicate themselfs to in life.

It is also said that women who could not have children, would come and ask for the blessing of the goddess and she would grant them their wish.

In mayan mythology this is the story of her appearance
Mythology and Legends of Ixchel:

The mythology that an almighty god called Itzamna, son of the god, married the moon goddess Ixchel. The goddess Ixchel attributed the phenomena related to the moon, pregnancy, tissue and floods.
One of the most important temples are located on the island of Cozumel. Pole port (now Xcaret) canoes departing with pilgrims to the temple to ask the goddess Ixchel to the women to bear children in their pregnancies that their husbands wanted.

Ixchel is said that she took under her protection to the pilgrims who visit the holy island, Cozumel.
