Island Wildlife: Cozumel Island Coatis

The latest article in our Island Wildlife series examines Cozumel's coatis.

These cute looking fellows are close relatives of the White-Nosed Coati (Nasua narica) that lives nearby on the mainland.

Similar to some other local mammals, isolation on the island has led them to evolve into a distinct breed (Nasua nelsoni) that is only found in Cozumel.

Cozumel Tourism Figures Jump Up

Cozumel saw a jump in visitors in June, as the number of passengers through the island's airport increased 21% compared with the same month last year.

The news comes just a day after the Mexican government also announced a rise of 5% in international visitors arriving to the country by air in the first 5 months of 2012.

ASUR, the company that owns Cozumel airport, said, today, that a total of 43,587 passengers came through the terminal in June 2012, compared with 36,020 in June 2011.

Return Of The Whale Sharks

The annual migration of whale sharks is well underway again.

Big groups are being seen around the tip of the Yucatan peninsula, about 75 miles (120 km) from Cozumel.

There are only a few months each year when the world's biggest fish make their visit, so it's worth seeing them now, while you can.
