Secret Flying offered round-trip flights from Chicago to Cozumel for only $159 per person and we knew we had to jump on it! With a limited budget and a long list of bucket list items we were off!
👉👉 5 Globetrotters Tip: We always withdraw local currency and try to pay cash whenever we can. Most shops do accept US funds, however you will pay an additional fee to deal with their personal conversion rate. Always deal with the local currency!
We arrived in Cozumel after a series of connecting flights to a vibrant and bustling little city. Cozumel is a frequent stop for most cruise ships and the streets were packed with people and vendors. Once arriving in the city square we walked down to the nearest grocery store to pick up a few grocery items. We sat in the park feasting on deli items and whatever we could find that would make an easy lunch/supper. The park sprinklers came on and local children flooded the area playing in the water. It was a welcome surprise given the intense heat at the moment.
