This port was mostly shopping. The first thing you do when you get off the ship is SHOP! Everyone rushes into International Diamonds and goes gaga over everything. I mean i would too if i had hit jackpot on the ship's casino, but i didn't so i can only look at all the pretty sparkly things :)

|When the ship is parked there like that, doesn't it look like the island grew a condo out of nowhere?|

The last port we stopped at was Cozumel, Mexico. I've been here before on my last cruise, but luckily it was the opposite side, so it was still a new experience for me. We actually went on an excursion here. I bought the package for a The Mayan Ruins and Island Overview. You know those people who predicted the end of the world? There was a lot of history there, but sadly we didn't have a lot of time, so we didn't get to see much on this excursion. Too much talking to tell the truth, and i seriously don't mind the history lesson, but when mosquitos the size of my palm are flying around everyone trying grab a free lunch, that's when i get cranky. And nobody likes a cranky Sandy.
On the brochure there was this infamous castle like ruin right beside the sea, and i was pumped up to finally see it (that was the main reason why i chose this excursion), but then we didn't even have time to see it. the tour guide said it's a 2 hour hike from the entrance, and we only had an hour total for this place! How frustrating! False advertising!

After we left the Mayan Ruins, the tour guide took us on an Island overview. We went to this beach…well i wouldn't call it a beach because the waves were much too big and too dangerous, but it was beautiful!!! I stood a bit too close to the waters although i thought i was far enough, but in a blink of an eye the waters came rushing towards me and i managed to run in time except i got my shoes completely soaked! The waves were realllllly strong. There were also lizards everywhere but i couldn't get close enough to one to take a picture.

|Walking back to the ship, there happen to be a smaller Carnival cruise also in Mexico. Look at the size difference! It's like Shark and fish|
