We would like to thank readers of this website for all their support since Wilma visited Cozumel at the end of October. The island bounced back fast due to the hard work and will of local people, tens of thousands of cruise ship passengers have already returned and hotels are expected to be almost back to normal by February. All in all, 2006 looks like being a fantastic year for Cozumel.
