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!

We just got back from Cozumel and the best thing we did was the Sea Turtle Release with FP&M. They were very educational and not just about the turtles. We were so excited to be able to hold the babies and set them free. Watching them bob their heads out of the water to breathe was quite a sight! Digging for them was enchanting, like finding buried treasure! Thanks to COZUMELINSIDER for helping us make this happen! Karen E. ~ Arroyo Grande, CA USA

Just wanted to thank COZUMELINSIDER for getting us booked for our activities while we were in Cozumel. The dolphin swim was fantastic! I'd do it again in a minute. We didn't get to do the SNUBA diving ..... we ended up doing the Helmet dive instead for the same price. We plan on visiting Cozumel again possibly next year and will be contacting you to book some excursions prior to our vacation. We saved a significant amount of money booking the excursions through COZUMELINSIDER instead of the cruise line. Thanks again! S.Forgette and G Wichtowski ~ Not Given

I just wanted to let you know we really enjoyed our experience with the turtle salvation program this week. It was an amazing evening I will never forget. I will be sure to share the info with my local dive shops and SCUBA club when I return. I know that many others would love to participate and support the turtles. Thanks again and if you could pass along our appreciation to the biologists and other volunteers, we know it is all of your dedication that helps the turtles. J & D Lamb ~ Tucson, AZ

Sherri, my boss wants you to take down your webcam! It seems it is preventing me from getting any work done! I just stare at it all day. haha I will be there in two weeks. It's been since March since we spent a week there and I'm going through withdrawals. I hope Mezcalitos has the 'ritas ready for me. Jennifer ~ Louisiana

i've been on your site for the last week just checking everything out i'm telling you that you have the best site for learning about cozumel to all the execursions that are offered. also the information about how to get to the hotel from the airport with the cost about the ferry to every question that a person like myself would have that is planning on travelling to your beautiful country we are planning on retiring there. our family and myself will be arriving in Cancun and then going on to Cozumel. we will be staying at the reef and then park royal but i printed out coupons and all the info about the ferry, the ado bus and all the execursions we want to do . i'm lucky because i speak the language and i love to talk to people i would love to also get the pleasure of meeting with you which i'm sure i will since we plan on doing alot of your execursions. thank you for this beautiful site i enjoyed every minute i spend on it i look forward to hearing back from you!
