Buccanos on Cozumel

Cozumel regulars have their favorite restaurants and love to argue about who is the best. Since January of this year, there is a new contender for best on Cozumel. We think it is Buccanos at Night. It has everything: creative cooking, ambiance (ocean views) and outstanding service.

The Cozumel Sun

Since we are spending a lot of time on the island, we are doing most of our blog posts on our “local” site, The Cozumel Sun.

Cozumel Eagle Rays

For Cozumel divers, when December arrives the buzz is about the return of the spotted eagle rays. Each winter they return to feed (and breed?) in the waters around the island. Diving one of the northern reefs is the best place to see them.

Love Mexico

After more than twenty-five years of dancing around the idea of being an expat, a year ago I became one.

In the previous post, we mentioned several things that we love about Mexico after living here for one year.

One Year in Mexico


One year ago, Jennifer and I left the United States with a fully-loaded Toyota 4Runner and moved to Mexico.

Our first year as expats was eventful and full of surprises. Looking back, we have wonderful memories, several new friends and an enthusiasm for the future.

Cozumel Diving

One of our favorite Latin Journeys is right here at home in Cozumel. It takes place beneath the water.

Few experiences rival the beauty and calm of the clear, warm Caribbean waters and reefs that surround the island of Cozumel. After several years as a national park, the ocean teems with life, making every dive in each month of the year a new experience.
