Map

"Island of the Swallows" translated into Mayan becomes Ah Cuzamil Peten. We know it today as Cozumel, a 250 square mile island off the Yucatan coast of Mexico. It is a prime tourist destination, with over two million people visiting there annually. Virtually all of the island's economy is derived fron tourism, as there is no manufacturing or farming on the island.



So, if you were to be one of the two million plus to visit Cozumel this year, what would you do? Cozumel, for the most part, offers pretty much the same that any tropical resort area offers: beaches, golf, fishing, resturants, spas, and sailing. However, what sets Cozumel apart, are the coral reefs off the western part of the island. The Arrecifes de Cozumel National Park, part of the second largest barrier reef system in the world, contains miles of pristine coral habitats for scuba and snorkling.

First, I want to thank all of you again who took the time to go through all the cams, and pick your favorites! It wasn't easy for me, and I doubt it was a walk in the park for you, either! :' )

Now, for some geek numbers! :' )

Most votes: PenguinKam2 had 14 votes out of the 19 cast, with Kanzi having 13. Very popular, as you will see below! :' )

Cams your blog owner picked for the top ten: Just three, lol! The other voters obviously have better taste than I do, lol!

It's time for everyone to vote for their top ten webcams of 2013! I'm changing the voting format a little this time; this year, you can vote for up to ten cams with ten points going to your favorite, and so on, down to one point for #10! If you don't have ten favorite cams, that's OK.

My apologies again to those with slow internet speeds. I don't know how else to do this!
