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!

Had a great time liberating baby turtles ~ Will be back to do it again! D. Stachelski ~ Yorkville, Illinois

Dear Sherri,
Our family met you just a week ago when we arrived in Cozumel, a little overwhelmed and in need of a hotel. You gave us great suggestions and we had a lovely week at Hotel Cozumel. I wanted to write and thank you for all your time and consideration. We also followed your beach suggestions and had wonderful snorkeling. Thank you, Sherri, for taking the time with us. And thank you for your wonderful website. We wish you the very best in the New Year and always. Foley Family ~ Minnesota

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

It is very cold here, it snowed last night. Welcome home to us right?! Just wanted to send an email thanking you for making our experience the best ever in sunny Cozumel. We wanted to let you know that the day we spent at your PalMar Beach Club we had your homemade tamales, (which are my favorite, by the way!) and they were excellent. Also we think that you have very good employees, Juan (there at the beach club/your house) we especially appreciated him, he treated us very well and we just wanted you to know that. Thanks again for the ride to the ferry, we made the 10:00! Also we were very thankful for your advice to stay there in Playa. We were able to get a room and just enjoy our last day on the beach which is what I really wanted. We were within walking distance from the bus that took us to the airport the next morning so it was all very convenient. You were very helpful and we will definately recommend your villas to anyone going there in the future. K & J Gilbert ~ Unknown

Sherri...thank you again so very much for your fantastic website and for your excellent stories on life in Cozumel. We fellow Texans that are not fortunate enough to actually live there are able to do it through you and we are all extremely grateful...and incredibly envious! Having been an airline employee until retirement I have been lucky to have been down island over 20 times and it NEVER gets old. I thought I knew all about Cozumel, but was delighted to learn of new things and places through you and your website. Your current posting of how you came to Cozumel was so cool. You really need to work on that book! Congrats on this milestone, and continued luck and success in all you do. See you in September for our annual trip down for my birthday and Mexican Independence Day. M. Goodwin ~ Dallas, Texas
