Cozumel

Het eiland van de zwaluwen

Het veertig kilometer lange eiland direct voor de kust van Playa del Carmen, Isla Cozumel, is een populaire bestemming voor cruiseschepen: bijna elke dag meren tot wel tien cruiseschepen aan de drie aangewezen pieren van het eiland aan, allemaal ten zuiden van de enige stad San Miguel.

Een vakantie naar Mexico met MSC Cruises biedt u bezoekjes aan restaurants, souvenirwinkels en sieradenwinkels, allemaal langs de malecón (Av Rafael Melgar) in het centrum van San Miguel


Als u zin heeft om een museum te bezoeken, is er het mooie Museo de la Isla de Cozumel, waar flora, fauna en het zeeleven van het eiland te bewonderen zijn, evenals een mooie collectie van Maya-overblijfselen en oude foto's.


Als u geen duiker bent, is het een leuk idee om rond te wandelen door het binnenland van San Miguel, weg van de pieren, om de Maya-ruïnes en de vogels te bekijken (de Maya's noemden het eiland cuzamil, “land van de zwaluwen”) in de dichte bossen en als enige op de oostelijke stranden waar het vaak waait. 


Halverwege het eiland ligt San Gervasio , de enige opgegraven Maya-plaats op Cozumel. Met een aantal kleine tempels die verbonden zijn door sacbeob, lange witte wegen, was het een van de vele onafhankelijke stadstaten die de val van Chichén Itzá, florerend tussen 1200 en 1650 v. Chr., heeft overleefd. De plaats, die onderdeel uitmaakt van een groter natuurreservaat, is de moeite waard om te bezoeken vanwege de vele vogels en vlinders die u vroeg in de ochtend of laat op de dag kunt bewonderen. 


Een andere plaats om te bezoeken is Xcaret, een verrassend leuk themapark: het biedt alle bezienswaardigheden van Yucatán op één enkele plek, met een museum, een tropisch aquarium, een ‘Maya-dorp’, een strand, een aantal kleine authentieke ruïnes, zwembaden en meer dan een kilometer aan ondergrondse rivieren waarin u kunt zwemmen, snorkelen of ronddrijven. Aan de andere kant is het naburige Xplor gewijd aan tokkel- en kabelbanen en andere buitenactiviteiten.

      Next to a whole host of other aquatic wildlife, the calm waters off Cozumel are frequented by scores of southern stingrays, a marine dweller known to display an endearingly friendly disposition towards humans. And if you’d now like to get up close and personal with these cute critters yourself, all you have to do is join this entertaining tour. Begin with a 5-minute taxi ride to Stingray Beach, then learn how to stay safe in the water and finally head for the saltwater enclosure to meet the lovable sea kittens in person. As you wade into the water, groups of stingrays will naturally begin to flock around your legs they know there’s food to be had and you’re the source. After feeding the rays, you’ll move on to a larger protected section of Stingray Beach, the snorkelling area. Once you’ve got your gear on it’s time to experience the marine wonderland live and direct. You’ll find the water is alive with stingrays, brightly coloured parrot fish, starfish, crabs, needlefish and even the occasional octopus, a true master of underwater camouflage. You’ll also have time to spend on dry land at Stingray Beach’s Seaside Club. Enjoy a complimentary drink and do try out the water trampoline a firm favourite with kids of all ages. Your brief return journey to the ship then brings your tour to a close. Please note: guests must be at least 4 years of age to take part in the tour.

      Every year from spring to autumn, the shores of Cozumel turn into a breeding ground for loggerhead and green sea turtles, two endangered species that this tour gives you a chance to help save. After the female turtle has laid her eggs in a hole she digs in the sand using her hind flippers, they will hatch about 100 to 150 days later under cover of the night. The little hatchlings then embark on the most dangerous journey of their young lives the mad scramble over the sand to reach the relative safety of the sea. While this entirely natural process enjoys a high success rate, some 20% of the baby turtles lack the strength or stamina to climb out of their nesting hole. This is where you come in and, instructed by a qualified marine biologist, stand to make a real difference to the previous evening’s hatchlings, little lives that would otherwise not survive. Your task involves first digging the young turtles out of their nests and then taking them to Cozumel’s Marine Biology Outpost where they will be looked after until their internal organs have matured sufficiently for them to be released into the sea. Don’t miss this truly heart-warming experience and make your contribution to wildlife preservation in the most hands-on way possible. The tour draws to a close with your return to the ship. Please note: guests are advised that digging out the turtle hatchlings may involve working on your knees or lying down on the sand. To avoid injuring any baby turtles, the digging process is entirely by hand (no shovels, trowels or other tools may be used). Although female turtles usually dig their nests relatively close to the water, some places may be easier to dig in than others. Guests are recommended to wear comfortable clothes, a hat, high-factor sunscreen and comfortable shoes for walking on the beach. This tour is available only during the Summer 2017 calls to Cozumel, Mexico starting from Aug. 2nd, 2017 through Oct. 25th, 2017. Guests will be required to sign a waiver which may only be available in English.

      Book code COZ72 for a VIP version of the Save a Turtle Tour, exclusive to MSC guests. This tour version will see you travel in a smaller group of guests and will allow you to add a further touch of pure relaxation to the heart-warming hands on experience of Saving a sea turtle. Save, learn, help, protect, enjoy and contribute. This tour is for anyone who wants to leave Cozumel a little better than how they found it. You will be led by the biologist’s team member who spearheads the Save the endangered Sea Turtle Program. Cozumel boasts the most Sea Turtle nests per kilometre than any other area in Mexico by a 3 to 1 ratio. Every evening the turtles hatch and make their way to the sea. This is a natural process, but in the frenzy of the nest only about 80% of the hatched turtles actually have the stamina and jolt of energy to climb out. On this tour we backtrack the previous evenings events and help rescue the 20% of turtles who were not ready for the dash to the sea and recover these turtles until their inner-organs are mature enough to be released by digging them out. This process is extremely heart-warming and satisfactory as you will be in direct contact with nature and you will be directly involved in saving the little life of the turtle so it may have a true chance at life. Your next stop is at a Beach Restaurant on the Eastern side of the Island where you will have one of Cozumel’s most famous dishes: Caribbean Lobster! You will have a sit down lunch at one of the landmark beaches of Cozumel and enjoy the traditional delicacy that is so true to this culture. Then it will be time to head to the comfort of your ship. Please Note: Guests are advised that digging out the turtle hatchlings may involve working on your knees or lying down on the sand. To avoid injuring any baby turtles, the digging process is entirely by hand (no shovels, trowels or other tools may be used). Although female turtles usually dig their nests relatively close to the water, some places may be easier to dig in than others. Guests are recommended to wear comfortable clothes, a hat, high-factor sunscreen and comfortable shoes for walking on the beach. This tour is available only during the Summer 2017 calls to Cozumel, Mexico starting from July 5th, 2017 through Nov. 8th, 2017. Guests will be required to sign a waiver which may only be available in English.

      Indulge yourself with a trip to Isla Pasión (Passion Island), a private islet to the north of Cozumel that’s perfect for some serious relaxation. Getting there, however, is sure to get the adrenaline pumping since you’ll be boarding a high-speed boat called the Twister and travelling at speeds of up to 80 kmph/50 mph. Best of all, the thrilling ride includes several high-speed 360° turns! Once you arrive at the island, complete with a white sand beach leading to blueish-green waters, you can enjoy a drink under a palapa or in a hammock. Your stay on Passion Island also includes a tasty buffet lunch with guacamole, pork and chicken fajitas as well as fish tacos prepared al-pastor style, a kind of upright spit roasting. Spend your time any way you like: simply enjoy the view, go for a swim, have a go at kayaking, bounce around on the water trampoline, take a stroll along the shoreline, do some shopping or bag yourself a massage. At the end of your stay, the Twister will return you to the pier and your ship. Please note: guests will get wet on the Twister ride to Passion island. Since the journey consists of high-speed twists and turns, it is not recommended for guests who suffer from motion sickness/vertigo. Guests must be at least 7 and no older than 75 years of age, and weigh no more than 136 kg/300 lbs to take part.

    Mexico

    In de schaduw van een sombrero
    In de schaduw van een sombrero

    Mexico is een van 's werelds grootste beschavingen en is een geweldige cruisebestemming door de mengeling van meso-Amerikaanse culturen, moderne inheemse stammen en Spaanse tradities. Het is een levendige moderne economie en ook de grootste van Zuid-Amerika na Brazilië.

    Het Mexicaanse landschap is even divers: van de glinsterende blauwe kustlijn van Baja California en de iconische met cactus bezaaide woestijnen in het noorden, tot de Maya-dorpen en prachtige door palm omzoomde stranden van de Caribische Zee. U kunt vulkanen beklimmen, walvissen spotten, ondergronds zwemmen en tequilaboerderijen bezoeken tijdens uw vakantie naar Mexico.

    En in het hele land vindt u rijkelijk versierde koloniale kerken, enorme eeuwenoude piramides en een verfijnde gastronomie die weinig gemeen heeft met de wereld van nacho's en burrito's. Ondanks de onvermijdelijke invloed van de VS en de nauwe banden met de rest van de Spaanstalige wereld, blijft het land uniek. De muziek die de pleinen in de avonden vult, de gebouwen die eromheen cirkelen, zelfs de kleuren die van een rij tacokarren komen: ze laten u niet twijfelen over waar u bent.

     De meeste bezoekers die voor het eerst komen, zijn verrast om te ontdekken dat Mexico ver weg is van een “zich ontwikkelend” land: het land kent een sterke economie (de veertiende grootste van de wereld), een opvallend gedegen en efficiënt binnenlands transportsysteem en een levendige moderne kunst- en muziekwereld.
