For the third year in a row, Cozumel 4 You is proud to host this weekly series, which features island residents – written in their own words, describe how they came to call the island home and what they love about Cozumel. Running from June – August, you can find the 2 prior years in our archives, 2013 & 2012.
Over the last 14 years that I have been living in Cozumel, I’ve been through many phases of my life, and situations that have all made me love Cozumel. One of the most significant events in my life was hurricane Wilma and the days that followed. The island was devastated and we were left without food and water. Several buildings had collapsed and our beautiful island was full of ruins. That was such a sad time in everyone’s lives, but seeing everyone on this island giving their support, and helping each other in so many ways, filled me with so much love and trust. For that and many other reasons I call Cozumel home
