Jumping Overboard: Cozumel (Vacation 2015, Part 3)

We pulled into our first destination, Cozumel, bright and early Tuesday morning! All four of us were up with the sun to get a first glimpse of the port and got to see the pilot boat navigating our giant ship into port. Once our boat docked, my parents and I headed off to the fitness center for a Pilates class which was TOUGH but a great start to the day. After a good sweat we grabbed some breakfast and were ready to explore!

The port at Cozumel is extremely touristy (as most of the ports were) with dozens of vendors trying to catch your attention to buy their goods. Lindsey and I did a bit of walking around and found some cool sculptures and a couple of pelicans just chillin' by the road! We didn't do much shopping but we did dip our toes into the ocean for the first time during the trip! I was obsessed with the color of the ocean (as you'll probably see in every one of these vacation posts!).

After about an hour or so of exploring, it was time for us to go on our first excursion of the trip! We went on a catamaran cruise that took us snorkeling at a reef as well as to this really awesome beach water park that had a bunch of inflatable water toys, paddle boards, and other fun water activities. We had lunch and relaxed all day and it was so much fun! Perfect way to kick off all of our excursions for the trip. Most of this excursion is on the vlog below, so make sure to check it out!

We were actually the last excursion to return back to the ship, so as soon as we were all back on board the ship took off for our next destination. My mom and I went down to the lap pool before dinner for a swim workout (#nodaysoff) which was really tough because I am DEFINITELY not a good swimmer (I basically do enough to keep myself afloat but outside of that I'm basically just flailing around in the water, haha). We finished the evening with dinner and another show before returning to our rooms to another fun towel animal!
