This is the Iberostar on Cozumel, Mexico. Most of the vacationers at Iberostar were divers, each day the dive boat operators would pull up to the pier with their boats to gather up the divers. That means that during the day there are very few people around the resort and at night most of the divers are off to bed pretty early so the atmosphere is quiet. Although they have a great kids club with supervision and activities, older children might get bored. The beach is nice but is a little rocky. Food was good, accommodations peaceful, clean and quiet. During early December visit the mornings were sunny and warm, around 2 pm rains would come for 15 – 30 minutes, and then the sunshine would return. Sunset spectacular from the beach.
