Betty Pagina de Betty Arellanos


Hi! My name is Beatriz Arellanos (Betty) , I’m 13 years old and I live in Cozumel Island, Mexico.

On August 8th I’ll try to swim across the Cozumel channel departing from Akumal in mainland to Cozumel Island, is a 45 Km swim, about 28 Miles.

My mother, Betty Sandoval, did the very same swim back in 1985 when she was 14 years old, and I want to break her record time of 10 hours and 55 minutes.

Been a year younger than her I will become the youngest person who ever swim the Cozumel Channel.



Watch the pictures!

Hello everybody

Thank you very much for all your support. Even that the goal I have in my mind couldn't be achieved, I accomplished a far bigger goal, that's how I see it, I swam for 13 hours against the current. That was something I never imagined I could do. Not even try.

Sometime thinks don't happen the way we want them, but it's in those times when we realize how strong we really are.

As people, we want things to be easy but then what will be the fun of life? If we couldn't do something, we shouldn't give up. We must keep moving forward and realize of what we are capable of doing.

Thank you very much to everybody for their support, moral and spiritual. To those those that where there and to those who weren't thank you!
