embarrasing question about Cozumel ??

Discussion in 'Disney Cruise Line Forum' started by magic cruiser, Jan 1, 2003.

  1. I am excited about our 3rd Disney Cruise, except for one thing....

    I always enjoy the beautiful beaches, shopping, sightseeing that the islands have to offer, BUT Cozumel worries me. You see I have this fear of reptiles...which ,of course,includes iguanas. Is there ANYWHERE I could go, or any tour to take where this wouldn't be a big problem ? I really want to enjoy my day in Cozumel but am apprehensive. Thanks for your advice...AND for not laughing ! Oh, we sail 1/18/03...coming up soon ! :eek:

    Sure! :) Take the Fury Catamaran excursion, you're on a great boat and you snorkel a bit and then head to a beach with nary an iguana in sight! ;) I'm sure there are plenty of other places you could go too and remain reptile free.

    I understand, iguanas creep me out too! :)

    Never saw one iguana! DS was upset as he really wanted to see some, we did go to Cozumel mini golf and saw some tiny things that looked more like newts or something they were only about four inches., but in the shopping district not one reptile !

    We spent time at Mr Sancho's beach, didn't see any iguanas there, also spent time doing some shopping and didn't see any there.

    When we went to Xcaret on the mainland we saw A LOT of them in the park. I would stay away from there if you don't want them scampering up to you.

    ok - I'm just the opposite. I WANT to see iguanas! :) I've heard that people take bananas off the ship, and feel the iguanas. Where can I go to do that?

    I totally understand about your phobia. While I love iquanas and all things reptile, I simply cannot stand to be near spiders. I've traveled to Mexico over a dozen times and it's one of the toughest parts of the trip. I console myself with the thought that, in Mexico, the spiders are soooo large that I couldn't possibly accidently run into one. You can even see them on the side of the road when you're traveling by car. EWWWWWW I personally think phobias are something we're born with and as far as I can tell, they have no specific purpose but are scary as all get out. My other phobia is "little people" and if there's an explanation for that one I'm dying to know.

    Cindyluwho has a phobia of little people? Now that's funny.

    Are you telling me that I have to worry about crawly spiders in Mexico?! In the words of my 8 yr. old "That's Sickness!" Iguanas I can handle. Little salamandar/newts are cool. Ferrets rock. Spiders just rot!

    Kshabare, like I said, the spiders are sooo big you can see them well before you get anywhere near them. Somehow that's not so freaky to me as the little tiny ones that you don't see until you walk into their webs. When that happens I always do the "spider web dance". You know the one, wiping your hands all over your head and body while jerking madly around and flailing. And the phobia about little people seems funny until you realize that it would be totally unPC and very rude to run away when you see one in a public place. Someday I'm gonna get up the nerve to aproach a little person and ask if it's a common thing to be afraid of them, but that would probably be even more unPC.
