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!

Just returned from Cozumel where we participated in the FP&M Turtle Salvation program and it was the highlight of our trip. Our guides picked us up at our hotel right on time. They were very nice and one spoke fantastic English. Being able to participate in the extraction of newly hatched baby sea turtles from their nests and then watching them scurry into the ocean was so amazing. There were 4 nests hatching that evening so we were interacting with baby turtles for several hours. Those little turtles are SO adorable and so VERY determined to get to the water. This activity exceeded our expectations. I would recommend it to anyone who loves nature and wants to help this endangered species. It is awesome that cozumelinsider.com donates its resources to handle the bookings for this activity to help raise funds for this great cause. Thanks for an awesome experience! T. Daily ~ Arizona

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

We cannot begin to express our thanks to Sherri and the staff at IslaMar Villas for our wonderful 11-night stay. This was our third time staying at IslaMar Villas and for us it's the only place to stay in Cozumel. It has truly become our home away from home. We love the apartments, the courtyard and pool, and the warm and friendly neighborhood.

We also used "COZUMELINSIDER" to book our car rental with Avis. It went very smoothly and you guys also helped us trade in our little Chevy Pop for something a little bigger.

A big THANK YOU to Sherri for introducing us to a wonderful private driver on the mainland and for arranging our excursion to Playa del Carmen, Tulum, and Akumal. We were so happy that we decided to finally venture off the island and go to the mainland to see the ruins. The driver Sherri arranged for us was extremely friendly and went above and beyond to make sure we saw things we wouldn't have even known about had we taken the car ferry and driven on our own. To anyone looking for a private tour of places on the mainland, we highly recommend asking Sherri to arrange it for you. It was well worth it!

Thank you again, Sherri! Your kindness and warm hospitality makes us choose IslaMar Villas and your services over and over again. R & M Browning ~ Superior, CO

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
