Last day in Cozumel
We split up today. Chris & Graham headed off into town early. Late morning, Darlene Simone & I caught a taxi to the Money Bar, a coastal bar with a close reef for snorkeling. Bronwyn & Brett also headed into town a little later for lunch.
Upon arrival at the Money Bar we learned that the snorkel equipment hire was US$20 per person. You can buy it for less. As a result I caught a cab back to the hotel and got ours (we should have brought it with us). Simone and I went snorkeling but by Australian standards the coral and number of fishes was poor. We're so lucky in Australia. They actually run tours to view this crappy coral.
We had lunch at the Money Bar and I had another swim after lunch then it clouded over and rained. We caught a taxi back to the hotel and did a bit of packing ready for our departure tomorrow. Then we congregated to the pool area and decided it was 5 pm somewhere and had a few wines and snacks. The resident peacock made an appearance around 6 pm and Brett was able to hand feed it.
Our hostess Ana (property owner) dropped by to chat and say goodbye. We would happily come back. She mentioned she has another property on another island not far from here called Holbox. It is also named El Encantos. Maybe next time...
We did a run for more wine but will go out for something light later. We have a taxi booked for 6.50 am to take us to the airport . We erred on the side of caution and allowing for "Mexican time" we should be able to get to our 8am flight ok. We leave Mexico tomorrow richer for the experience of being here.
