A Personal Note from Sherri "20 Year Milestone"
Sherri Davis - Owner/Operator CozumelInsiderThis past week marked a big milestone in Sherri’s Great Island Adventure so I feel it’s worth mentioning to you. It was 20 years ago this past week that I decided to make the journey from Dallas to Cozumel in a cute little beach buggy of a car: my 1992 GEO Tracker ~ Canary Yellow with Pink stripes and a soft top for taking off later to catch rays at the beach.

Having driven a 7 Series BMW for years in Dallas, I still fell in love with the GEO the minute I drove it off the lot back in 1994. Sitting way up high and bouncing down the highway care free was somehow more appealing to me at the moment than high performance. Being single it was difficult for me to justify owning 2 cars but I remember telling my parents that this GEO was the ultimate diver beach buggy that suited my new island life in Cozumel. I also recall them practically fainting as I told them I was going to DRIVE the GEO through Mexico and over to the island. I blamed it all on a guy named Mike Thompson who back then, was also from Dallas and living on the island. There were nothing but crappy rust buckets available for purchase in Cozumel back then along with stories of how “it just couldn’t be done” ~ driving a car all the way from Texas to Cozumel. That alone was motivation for a Texas guy like Mike to make the trip. Mike bought an olive green jeep, loaded it up with beer (I would imagine…from what I recall of the fine partying Mike!) and struck out on the journey from Dallas to Cozumel. He made it safely with beer to spare in about 5 days.

My parents were not impressed nor convinced by Mike’s Mexico travel adventure. But in their always loving way, they found it in their hearts to be as supportive as possible of my life adventures. I had walked a pretty safe path in my life up to that point and now it was as if I was making a road where there was none. My dad asked one of his friends, David Chavez to make the trip with me and keep his baby safe through the interior of Mexico where roads were sparse, signs non-existent and very few Mexicans who had ventured beyond the outskirts of their own pueblo to know which way to go to get to the Caribbean. You can read the rest of the story in my book of adventures some day but essentially David did all of the drinking and driving and I did all of the worrying and navigating via an ancient map that we ended up using as emergency toilet paper along the way.

So this is a big SALUTE AND HUG not only to Mike who blazed the trail from Dallas for the rest of us but also to David and my sweet yellow GEO that I still drive today here on the island! It had 17,500 miles on it as we arrived here to the island June 16, 1994 and right now it has 97,500 miles on it. So I guess you could say I’ve been driving in circles for 80,000 miles now! It’s really a good thing that GEO can’t speak ~ my oh my what stories it could tell. LOL!!

And what an amazing GIRL car the GEO has been! I change the oil regularly, fill it up with gas and keep air in the tires and it simply never fails me! We can only wish for all other things in our lives to be so hassle free! Here are the THEN and NOW pics of my aging GEO with its original paint job and a few extra stickers on it! I'm a bit sentimental about it...?can you tell?!! That’s David there too who helped ensure a most excellent beginning to Sherri’s Great Island Adventure!

I just wanted to let you know that the private charter van service was outstanding. Thanks so much to you and your staff for arranging for the beverages on board and the driver was great. We will be visiting Cozumel again will always be utilizing yours and Uniper's assistance. R. Lee Family ~ Colorado

Wow! You have been so helpful Sherri! thank you so very much for taking the time in giving me so much details that would help me with the excursions! you are so sweet! if I have any other questions I will be sure to let you know. Thank you again for being so helpful! Have a blessed day! :) K. Shields ~ Little Rock, Arkansas USA

Thank you so much for all your help! We took you tour to Chitchen-Itza in june. We were the couple that missed the tour because we did not get the wake up call. Because you went the extra mile with us (by finding us a tour operator that would honor our voucher the next day) I am extremely greatful. it certainly made our vacation. I will DEFINITELY recommend your website COZUMELINSIDER to anybody who will listen. thanks again! F. Escobar ~ not given

Sherri ~ WOW!!! We just returned from our cruise! What a wonderful time we had!! Your COZUMELINSIDER.com bookings for our Dolphin snorkel adventure and Sea Trek were the highlight of the cruise. They were easy and saved us about half the cost of booking through the cruise line. We simply hopped into a cab and spent the day at the Park (we could have spent a week there.) They were even able to work us into the Sea Trek early. All the people were friendly, helpful and overall just treated us great. While we were standing around waiting a short little man came up and ask if we wanted a snorkel tour. I instantly remembered what you had said and looked at his name tag. It was Mario! His tour was fantastic! If you see him ask him if he remembers Señor Ed and his family (he never caught that my name was Ted, but that’s okay!) I had a waterproof digital camera and he snapped lots of pictures of us. We had a wonderful time and much of it was thanks to you, your website and staff!

I know you probably get lots of pictures but I had to send you three. Look at the smiles on my boy’s faces. That says it all! Thank you so much for all your help and advice. We can’t wait to return. Your website is the first place we will stop! I wish we could have met in person. We will next time! T. Mahler Family ~ Howe ,TX

Hello Sherri ~ I met you back in 2001 (12 years ago!) when my husband and I along with another couple were involved in a wreck and you were behind us and helped us out as to our rights in the matter. A motorcycle ran into the side of us pretty bad if you recall. I believe you said you lived in Addison, Texas like us. I have booked a trip and will be in Cozumel next Tuesday. Any recommendation on vehicle rental you can suggest for me? LATER: My date and I had a blast in Cozumel. He loved the island. It was a very short trip. I am including a photo of us on the cruise. He would like to go back and stay for a few days at your place. Hope you are doing good, please keep in touch. C Bronstad ~ San Antonio, TX
