According to official figures released last week, in 2010 Cozumel received the most cruise ship passengers for 6 years.

The Quintana Roo state government said more than 2.9 million cruise passengers arrived to Cozumel last year.


They came on some 1,038 ships, including the two largest in the world: Royal Caribbean's Allure of the Seas and Oasis of the Seas.

Sara Latife Ruiz Chávez, Tourism Secretary for the state of Quintana Roo, said Cozumel was the pride of the state and has consolidated its position as the "indisputable world leader for cruise ship arrivals".

The previous 6 year high was in 2004, when there were 2.8 million passengers.
