  • A Personal Note from Sherri "Happy Spring!"
    Sherri Davis - CozumelInsider Owner/Operator Me ~ Clowning Around Carnaval 2014 !So if you didn't manage to get here for Carnaval 2014, I can tell you it was a complete and total BLAST of a party and our Krewe had a magnificent 4 days of festivities and dancing on our parade float and in the streets of Cozumel. In fact we had such fun after 3 years of suspended activities that we simply kept partying well through the following weekend and probably put many tourists to shame in the beverage consumption realm! LOL! Can't say enough about just how fun Cozumel Carnaval can be ~ so try it some time for your next island vacation!

    Now, for the most part here on the island, “winter” as we know it is behind us for 2014! And it's time to turn our attention to Spring Break for the next couple of months and all the travelers that brings to the island.

    Cozumel Carnaval 2014 Our Krewe!Our IslaMar Villas are still full of guests and we’ve been serving visitors at PalMar SMALL Beach Club once again this season, taking reservations online for just a few folks to spend the day with us out here at the beach. Operating on a small scale for now serves our purposes and it's been fun to meet lots of new travelers again this year ~ it’s one of the things I love most about what we do here in paradise!

    So Spring Breakers and Spring Cleaning tops the list around here as the weather becomes more picture postcard perfect every day! Take time to review your schedule and vacation plans now to see when next you might be able to visit us here in Cozumel and enjoy some time relaxing in this lovely tropical paradise we call home!
