The Volkswagen Beetles Of Cozumel

The Volkswagen Beetle was discontinued in its native Germany in 1978, but production continued in Mexico for an additional 25 years. And so one of Germany’s most famous automotive designs has become a Mexican icon. The low-cost Beetles were a smash hit here for decades, and you still see a fair share puttering down the roads. Especially, it seems, in Cozumel.

    Enjoyed seeing these! I had a ’63 Model in my early 20’s…around 1978! Even though it had seen better years and was barely road-worthy, I loved it!

    Great pics! Last July I spent a week in Puebla, Puebla, Mexico, where the classic Beetle was actually manufactured. I took pics of them whenever I saw them! Thanks for sharing.
