Escape New Orleans to Cozumel
The Big Easy to the Western Caribbean
This escape was like two dream vacations in one. First we started from New Orleans which is one of the world's most fascinating cities – it's home to a truly unique melting pot of culture, food and music. Always nice to stay an extra day before we depart and experience New Orleans, one of America's most culturally and historically-rich destinations. Then, we sailed off to Cozumel which is proof that Mexico can do ‘island flavor’ with the best of the Caribbean. It may not be the biggest island in the sea, but Cozumel offers a huge variety of things to do, see, taste and explore. This island just happens to be perched atop a coral reef, which promised hours of snorkeling, scuba diving fun or just relax time. Our cruise to Cozumel docked at the island’s heart — just minutes from San Miguel’s seafront shops and the white sand beach at Chankanaab National Park. Drift among star corals and sea fans on a Cozumel diving excursion or some simply kicked back on the beach beneath a palm palapa as the turquoise waves roll in. With non-stop zip line action, ancient discoveries at the nearby Mayan ruins, or time spent with your toes in the sand, this escape to New Orleans , the cruise to Cozumel and Yucatan may just top one of our best vacations.
