Day 3 - Cozumel, Mexico

We arrived to Cozumel in Mexico at  7 am in the morning.
We ate breakfast as we approached
San Miguel, the 'capital' at the island.
At 8 pm we went on a excursion around the island. First stop was a 'copy' of a Mayan village.
The Maya were displaced when the Spaniards came to Mexico because they were not immune to the diseases the Spaniards brought to Mexico.
After Mayan village we drove along the beach with large areas of mangroves. A strange nature. Last on the tour, we visited one of the few extant Mayan temples on the island.
Back at the harbor we found Cafe Punta del Cielo just outside the terminal that had internet and we connected to home via FaceTime, which is not possible on the ship due to the limited access to the network.

We ate lunch on the ship at. about 2 pm, and we enjoyed the sun, first on our balcony, but then  it gradually became too hot at the balcony  (the sun was directly) we went up on the sun deck and found a lounge chair in the shade.
Late in the afternoon we went to the gym. At 7 pm, it was time for dinner  - fresh tuna as appetizer, tenderloin for the main course and a pecan pie for dessert - a really tasty dinner.
After dinner we walked around the ship - heard the music, so to shops and drank a glass of wine.

The island is located in the Caribbean Sea along the eastern side of the Yucatan Peninsula about 82 km (51 mi) south of Cancún and 19 km (12 mi) from the mainland. The island is about 48 km (30 mi) long and 16 km (9.9 mi) wide. With a total area of 477.961 km2 (184.542 sq mi), it is Mexico's largest Caribbean island, and Mexico's third-largest island, following Tiburón Island and Isla Ángel de la Guarda.
The majority of the island's population lives in the town of San Miguel which is on the island's western shore.
