BBQ at El Cid La Ceiba – TravelBart.com Report

It was going to be a beautiful night. It’s not unusual for me to run into San Miguel, Cozumel’s quaint town, for a bite to eat and to explore, but they dropped off a flyer to my room about a poolside BBQ, tonight. I’d been diving, snorkeling, and writing all day, so I thought, why,…
