My journey from cold Minnesota to the island life of Cozumel! by: Dancing Chef Brianna

My name is Brianna and I am a native born Minnesotan living in Cozumel.  Many people wonder how I ended up living here. Looking from a different perspective I can see the confusion, not many people think of living in a vacation destination as an actual option! I ended up living here after meeting my husband who is a Mexican citizen. He and I love living in Paradise together.

Even though my husband and I come from two different backgrounds and cultures we found ourselves learning and combining what we knew, which turned into a great life together. My husband’s love for cooking has expanded my palate to all sorts of different things, for example: super-spicy meals. Since I have moved to Mexico I have been able to appreciate that the authentic way of doing things, can truly add its own flare and tastes. I must also add that I have picked up the habit of adding fresh salsa and lime on top of all my meals.

I have added the love of travel to my life and have been blessed to branch into new territories. If you think about it, if I didn’t love to travel I would still be frozen in Minnesota! Just like all of you, I love to see and experience new things, try new foods, and visit beautiful places.


What I love about Cozumel is that it has all of those things combined into one island. I’m sure you can see why I fell in love with this island with the crystal blue water and lush jungle. Cozumel is full of great music, food, and people. Sampling a little bit of everything is a must! Here Salsa dancing is an every Saturday night thing for many people. I have lots of fun learning new dance moves and recipes. I am honoured and excited to join the Salsa and Salsa Team in Cozumel as it truly is the perfect job for me, as you can imagine!

Hope to meet you soon!
