Congratulations to the captain and crew of the “Marlín Negro” who took first place the 43rd “Rodeo de Las Lanchas Mexicanas” fishing tournament, which took place in Cozumel last weekend. In fact, Cozumel was extremely well represented this year, and managed to secure 2nd and 3rd places as well. The coveted second place went to the boat “Kissin’,” while 3rd place went to “Hooked.”
One hundred and fifty-five boats were registered for the tournament, which, due to inclement weather, presented several challenges. Rain didn’t deter huge crowds of spectators from cheering on the competitors as they weighed-in at Cozumel’s downtown “muelle fiscal” on Saturday and Sunday. This was the second year that this important tournament offered a catch and release option. Additionally, on Sunday, local restaurants hosted a gastronomic festival touting the benefits of consuming lionfish, which captured a lot of attention as well.

Proud parents to a variety of rescue dogs and cats, Laura continues to be the bane of her traditional Mexican mother-in-law’s existence, as she muses her way through life in the Mexican Caribbean. ______________________________ Una ex yanqui de Connecticut quien llama hogar a Cozumel desde hace más de 15 años.
