Fun on the island of Cozumel!
I always have fun, fun, fun when I come to my second home, the island of Cozumel in the Mexican Caribbean! From friends to fabulous restaurants to great boat dives and great shore dives and tourist attractions like the awesome Cozumel Pearl Farm, there is always something to do! My 2018 summer trip is almost over, but the memories will last forever. Take a look at what I’ve been up to on Cozumel!

Yes, you heard me! Cozumel has a Pearl Farm and it is the only one in the Caribbean! My fellow traveler, Linda Beach of A Passionate Dream Life came to visit and we decided to check it out. We had a great time, and learned so much.
I’ve seen pearl farms in Indonesia and the Pacific Ocean, and they are huge. The Pacific is an ocean of rich nutrients, but the Atlantic, and especially the Caribbean, offers much less in the way of nutrients and food. Compared to the Pacific, the Caribbean is a desert. But this wonderful family from Mexico City had a dream, and they have made it a reality. Isa Caamaño gave us a fantastic tour, and since she is the biologist in the family, we really learned about the biology of pearl farming. Her enthusiasm is infectious!
The story of the farm could be made into a movie. Dad was a successful contractor in Mexico City, but had a dream of starting a pearl farm in Cozumel. The entire family became involved in the project, and they started up in the early 2000s. In 2005, WILMA came along and destroyed everything, and I mean every single thing on the farm and the island. They decided to stay and rebuild, and in doing so, have created unique technologies and a successful business. They have also called upon Our Lady of Guadelupe, the patron saint of Mexico, to help. Visiting the Pearl Farm is a must do on Cozumel!
The tour also includes lunch, and plenty of time to relax and rest on this uninhabited beach on the north side of the island. It is about as far north as you can go on Cozumel, and utterly undeveloped except for the pearl farm. It is a beautiful area and one that is very rarely seen. I highly recommend visiting the Pearl Farm, and you can find them at Cozumel Pearl Farm on Facebook! Tell them Travels with Tam sent you!
Cozumel is a Fantastic Culinary Destination!
I love Cozumel, Mexico, a beautiful island in the Mexican Caribbean. It offers so much to visitors like world class diving, snorkeling, and yes, fantastic culinary delights! I know people in the USA are on edge about visiting Mexico these days, but let me tell you, I feel safer here than I do in my home in Dallas, and I’m betting you will too!
First Class Fine Dining Experiences
Yes, you read that correctly. What are fabulous restaurants doing on a casual, breezy island in the Mexican Caribbean? Well, why shouldn’t you have fine dining along with an easy going ambiance? I love these establishments, and I would love them anywhere in the world! Here are my top three:
- Buccanos at Night. Original, inventive, delicious culinary masterpieces overlooking the Caribbean ocean, owned and managed by a creative, talented family. The scenery, ambiance, and traditional yet casual elegance is a plus to the main event: the food! How can I describe it? How about with photos? And of course, check out their incredible menu, plus they always have nightly specials! You simply cannot visit the island without dining at Buccanos. Period!
2. La Cocay
My family has been dining at La Cocay for many, many years. We have celebrated birthdays, anniversaries, and just good times at this fantastic Cozumel restaurant. It is Mediterranean, with tapas and my favorite salad on the planet: the Napa Salad. Don’t miss La Cocay when you visit!
Another fabulous Cozumel institution! No one can visit the island without eating at Guidos! A family favorite, I cannot count how many people we have taken to Guidos over the years. They are famous for their garlic bread! Guido’s is an iconic Cozumel eatery!
Come on down to Cozumel, and bring your appetite!
