Tarzan Tours now offers an exciting day that takes you through the jungle and mangroves to a secluded beach on the north end of Cozumel. Few people have been to this off-the-beaten track area because you need a humvee or a dune buggy to get there. The largest ruin on the island--El Castillo Real-- is on the way and you can poke around this ancient archeological site. The 6-hour tour also includes world class snorkeling on a virgin reef just off a white sand beach. Cold drinks and a picnic lunch are furnished. Some say this adventure is the highlight of their vacation! Reservations are required. On the island, call 2-07-88. If you have any questions, let us know.
Bungee jumping. Yes, really. Just south of San Miguel there is a crane set up to take you to new heights where you can take the plunge. It's just off the main road, you can't miss it.
Planet Hollywood and Rumba's have closed their doors.
Rumor has it that a TGI Fridays is being built along the oceanfront.
Tony Rome (the restaurant specializing in ribs, pasta, etc.) was scheduled to relocate late in April, or early May to a site closer to the plaza. Don't forget to try their key lime pie! Tony and his wife are expecting their second child.
A new restaurant on 10th Avenue just south of the plaza is Azul Cobalto. Azul has an interesting menu and what we had was mighty tasty (layers of red bell pepper with goat cheese and eggplant . . . I know, it sounds odd, but it was wonderful; we also had a yummy salad and soup). Pasta is fresh and homemade. Give it a shot!
We took the time to get around to many of the properties on the island and updated our photos of properties on our website, so you might want to take a look. We also visited a few properties we hadn't seen before and added them to our website. More and more travelers are discovering that vacation villas and condos are a great alternative to hotels. Our listings have expanded to accommodate that growing demand.
