Adventuring UNDER the Mexican Caribbean!

Fabulous Photos Friday under the Caribbean Sea!

My last visit to Cozumel was wonderful. I spent it with friends, did yoga, and went diving and snorkeling A LOT.

 Enjoy looking at the fabulous creatures and scenery you can see under the waves in the beautiful Mexican Caribbean!
