lifestyle, travel This is Cozumel

Gustavo Ortega Joaquín, the Mayor of Cozumel, said that he still wants cruise lines and businesses to make Cozumel a home port - a starting point and base for cruises - reported Mexican newspaper Por Esto! this week.

Mr. Ortega said that the reconstruction of piers after Wilma gives an opportunity to make them "bigger and better", increasing the island's capacity for cruise ships.

The Freedom of the Seas will visit Cozumel in July. It carries 4,400 passengers and is considered the largest cruise ship in the world.
