Sunscape Sabor Cozumel, 2014

Sunscape Sabor is a family-friendly resort located 12 miles off the coast of the Yucatan Peninsula on the beautiful island of Cozumel.  The resort is located about 20 minutes from the Cozumel Airport and is also just a fifteen minute taxi ride away from the ferry terminal.  Below are photos we took while using a day pass to visit the property from 7 am until 11 pm.  As always, photos first and then the review.  Back to Mexican Resorts. Size:  This resort offers 218 guest rooms and suites.  It is a small… Read More

Cozumel: Day 3

We woke up and ate at the all-inclusive breakfast again.  The rest of the morning was lazy and relaxing, hanging out in our bedrooms, watching T.V.  In the afternoon, we took a personal tour from 1-5.  We hired a taxi driver to take us around Cozumel to get a better feel for it.  It was a lot of fun because what we did was drive to one place, hop out, snorkel; get back in the car, drive some more, hop out, and snorkel again.  It was rather active, so by the time… Read More

Cozumel: Day 2

Woke up with a fresh start today!  Ready for a hearty, all-inclusive breakfast, we headed downstairs.  The hotel had a really good all-inclusive breakfast, too.  There was the regular stuff like cereal, bread, yogurt, fruit, etc…, but there was also a station where a woman cooked anything from pancakes, to omelettes, to special Mexican breakfasts.  They also had some really good pastries (I indulged in a few chocolate croissants:)! After stuffing ourselves, we headed outside to go shopping; Cozumel is known for it’s fun shopping streets.  It was a very hot day, so when my… Read More

Cozumel: Day 1

Over the weekend, my family and I went to Cozumel.  We got a day pass on Friday to go to the all-inclusive resort Sunscape, and eat whatever we wanted, whenever we wanted, and swim practically the whole day. Waking up at 6:15, we hurried to get ready so we would catch the ferry in time.  However, we were not able to find a cab for a reasonable price, and so had to walk for approximately 45 minutes.  Unfortunately, we missed the first ferry, but were able to catch the 8:00 one. Once… Read More

Day 31: Discovering Cozumel

Cozumel is not what I expected.  I feared it would be crowded, commercial, and pushy.  And while it may be that at times, especially when more than one cruise ship is docked, we found it to be a lovely island with friendly people, gorgeous beaches, and beautiful sea life. It is very easy to reach Cozumel.  You can either fly directly onto the island or you can take a ferry from Playa del Carmen.  At the time this was written, the ferry cost $162 pesos (about $13-14 USD) for those 12 years old and… Read More

Day 27: A Cozumel Sunset

We enjoyed our first Cozumel nightfall yesterday!  Being on the “West” side of the island, we were treated to a spectacular sunset over the water.  The colors emerged slowly as the sun disappeared behind clouds.  For a moment, we feared the clouds would obscure our view.  Moments later, however, the sun peeked through the bottom of the clouds and the sky burst into colors…red, orange, purple, yellow. It was brilliant and though I wasn’t able to capture the full beauty of what we experienced, I just wanted to share this captivating moment with you.  God’s glory… Read More

Exploring Cozumel with Kathryn

A little while ago we went to Cozumel and had a blast. We walked quite a long way to get to our ferry, but missed it by a few minutes because the closer ferry terminal was closed. We had to buy tickets to the next ferry and it only left at 8:00am, which shortened our visit by an hour.   After the 45 minute ferry ride, we arrived in Cozumel and enjoyed the day at a resort called: Sunscape Sabor.  We loved the food.  We snorkeled for a little while, and saw tons of fish. When… Read More
