What a relaxing day. You gotta love a swim-up pool bar.

Wow! Looks like a perfect day in Cozumel! We loved that island! You really get a good perspective on the size of the two ships in that photo - wow!

Nice family shots, too! I hope your itching is coming to an end.

What a fun day. We so need to go there. My DH would love that swim up bar.

Hope you are doing better and the poison ivy is going away.

I thought the beach resort sounded expensive to start with but it looks like it was really good value for money in the end. Sounds like you had a really fantastic day.

Every time I think it's subsiding, I start itching again and a whole new patch appears....

We thought the same thing, but we were drinking fruity, frozen tropical drinks, easily $10/ea if purchased ala carte. And the food, it was also unlimited and it was really good! So we easily got our money's worth. And even though it filled up as the day progressed, it was never crowded. You saw the pool - that was as crowded as it got!

yea more trip report!!! Hope the poison ivy is all better Kara!

sigh.... Cozumel. One of my fave places in the whole world. aI adore that island.

We ended up doing Nachi and I will agree 100% that it was much quieter there - some might say a hair dead but we figured it was because of the weather. Nachi is about the same price and had great food and service and being limited in the number of people it was not crowded at all. we also had the swim up bar and the servers were great with the kids.

Glad to hear Mr. Sanchos was not too crowded. That was my biggest concern after reading all the reviews.

I dislike walking up and through the mall with all the people asking us to buy but love how easy the taxis are to get.

I think Mr. Sanchos next time.

Hope to get something done soon!!!
Yikes! That is horrible. I'm glad to hear that you are doing better.

Loved the update - what a fun beach day!!!! I especially like the all-inclusive drinks. : We are doing our first Caribbean cruise in August 2013 - I'm really not interested in the excursions, but something like that might be fun.

Oh, and I"m working on an update now!!!!
So glad it helped!

Was there much to do near the dock? We are going to Czumel as well...and we plan to hi Margaritaville...got coupons for free drinks..and just hang in the area. I want to keep it cheap, but see a few sites if possible in the area and possibly shop/browse some stores.

I gotta say, the two places look so much alike- except Mr Sancho's has the cool waterpark. I would definitely choose that one next time- T&T wanted to play on that stuff sooooooo badly!!!!

I definately prefer the smaller ship, the others are too top heavy.

Cozumel is one of my favorite places, love the neverending drinks for one price!

Another great thing to clear up poison ivy is to scrub it with lye soap. Me & three of my sons are highly allergic to it. One son had it all over his face so bad one time his eyes were swollen shut! That was terrible.

Jeff researched home remedies and found the only thing that works. Table salt. Just wet the affected area, then apply plain old salt and scrub, then rinse. It relieves the itch for HOURS!!!! I also tried bleach, it worked well, too, but the salt is the best!!!! I keep an antihistimine spray in my purse in case I'm out and start itching, but I swear by the salt. In fact, I used it this morning at 8am after my shower and I'm still itch free at 1pm!!!!

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I'm done breaking out. My legs are covered in bruises from all the scratching I've done. It looks crazy!

I hadn't heard about using salt, sounds like a good tip to know. I got a patch of poison ivy on my wrist earlier this summer. Just about drove me crazy for two weeks. My DH is immune to poison ivy, I hate him for that!
