Virgin's Disappearance Shocks Cozumel

Cozumel was shocked, this week, when it emerged that a famous statue of the Virgin Mary had disappeared from the bottom of the sea at Chankanaab Park.

The figure, which is made of bronze-plated tin, has been in Cozumel for some 50 years and is an attraction for divers and snorkelers to the natural park.

Cycling in Cozumel

Guest feature article.
