Cozumel Street Shots, 0110

Walking the streets of San Miguel on the island of Cozumel exposes one to hordes of cruise ship passengers, and the Mexicans who are there to help thin the foreigners’  wallets.  Many of the foreigners are drunk.  A bucket of 6 Corona’s is only $5.  Often there are domestic disputes in front of Senor Frog’s when one half of the couple did not want to return to the ship.  After a few days the Mexicans who hang out on the street knew that I did not want to buy any Cuban cigars and they took to asking me about my camera.  Girls roam the streets wearing next to nothing.  Definitely a great place for candid and street photography.

  3. Nice shots – $5/5 beers – what they actually should cost 🙂

  5. The last photo is nice. I’ve never been to Mexico, but I’d like to visit. 6 beers for $5 sounds like a great deal, especially if you’re on vacation.

  6. great series…never been to Cozumel…but I’ve been to both Cancun and Playa Del Carmen, so I’m thinking they are similar???

    • Cozumel has some similarities to Playa Del Carmen. It is only a short ferry ride away.

    • This is easily the busiest cruise ship port of them all. Every day there is a new crop of people.
