Day 11

Christmas in Cozumel

We were up and dressed before the girls so we had to wait to wish them a Merry Christmas. We had a restaurant booked for lunch but with both Brett & Bronwyn being unwell we postponed our Christmas Lunch to a Christmas Tea. We left them to sleep it off and the rest of us took a taxi to Pancho's Backyard - a Mexican restaurant and bar near the second cruise ship terminal. We had an outdoor table with a filtered view to the sea and the Carnival Dream cruise ship. The sea was clear and multi-coloured. We spotted a number of large lizards sunning themselves on top if the fence separating the restaurant are from a vacant block. We ate lightly expecting to be going out for dinner. Upon our return we learned that the restaurant we were planning to visit was not open for tea. Oops.

We spent a few hours in and by the pool in the warm afternoon weather. Martin (son of hotel owners) dropped by and helped us choose a snorkeling location for our last day. For dinner we ended up staying in as the kids were still not the best. We heated up our leftovers from last night's meal. I didn't mention that I bought some chocolate ripple biscuits from Australia with a view to having a chocolate ripple cake as is tradition in our family. As it turns out cream is not available to buy here. Oh well. We had vanilla ice cream with crushed biscuits instead. Improvisation. It tasted fine. That was our sweets both last night and tonight. After cleaning up and chatting for a while we retired to our rooms early with plans to take a morning ferry to Playa del Carmen tomorrow for the day.
