Hi there my Steemit friends and followers!
Welcome to my D-Tube Wednesday series where I share my videos taken at interesting places that I have visited during my travels.
Today, I will take you to the Cozumel Island, Mexico.
Occupying a total area of just 647 sq km (250 sq mi), Cozumel is a little island found in the Caribbean Sea, just some 20 km (13 mi) off Playa del Carmen, one of the biggest cities on Riviera Maya on the Mexican mainland.
Don’t let the miniature size of the island fool you though. One of the most beautiful islands of Mexico, Cozumel has so much to offer - from scuba diving and snorkeling to ancient Mayan ruins, impressive architecture and abundant wildlife.
I was, of course, most interested in the natural sites of the island so I headed south to the Punta Sur Eco Beach Park, a protected natural area with beautiful white-sand beaches, lush tropical vegetation and diverse fauna. In fact, Cozumel is known to be home to several endemic animal species such the Cozumel Emerald, the Cozumel Fox, the Cozumel Coatior the iconic Cozumel Dwarf Raccoon.
I took this footage from the top of a lighthouse in the Punta Sur Eco Beach Park on the Cozumel Island, Mexico.
As you can see in the video, the lighthouse in the reserve offers some breathtaking views with swamps inhabited by crocodiles on one side of the road and the Caribbean Sea full of marine life on the other. Stunning combination conjured up by Mother Nature herself ;)
I hope you enjoyed the video. If you did, stay tuned for the next episode of my D-Tube Wednesday series. Thank you @dtube for allowing us to share our videos with the Steem community.
