06 • Retha talks things to do on Cozumel Island

Travel blogger Retha, AKA the Roaming Nanny, joins me to talk about her week-long trip to Cozumel Island in Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula. Cozumel is a popular cruise ship stop and resort town — but it's also so much more than that! In this podcast, Retha talks about getting her PADI diving certification in Cozumel, snorkeling & diving, renting a car, visiting Mayan ruins, her favorite sunset spot at this Mexico beach town... and Cozumel's only microbrewery!
