Carnaval 2015!

Cozumelinsider.com is the Original website for Cozumel Carnaval Information!! For more than a decade, visitors have used to stay up-to-date on Carnaval events and activities. Long before other websites and social media existed ~ we have been here providing you great information about Carnaval Cozumel! We ARE Carnavaleros so we are always right in the middle of all the festivities and happenings! So keep checking back regularly to see updates on king and queen candidates, dance competitions, community presentations and much more!

Begin planning now & looking ahead to Carnaval 2015 because it will be here before you know it!!!

Pre-Carnaval events begin in mid January and Carnaval itself starts just a few weeks later!!

This is the page to bookmark for Cozumel Carnaval 2015 Activities !!


Let's start by explaining a bit about Pre-Carnaval events!

As you may know, each year a King and Queen of Carnaval are elected by the general population of Cozumel.These Pre-Carnaval events focus on presenting, vying for votes and electing the King and Queen of Carnaval. These are very much"locals" type events but everyone is welcome to attend. The events typically don't even start until close to midnight and last until the wee hours of the mornings! Tourists might enjoy them but honestly,weI've never promoted attendance by tourists simply because...



  • The Pre-Carnaval events are typically sold out in advance anyway so it's S.R.O.
  • These events do run so late into the night and ...
  • really the locals should maintain control of who THEY WANT as THEIR King and Queen of Carnaval.
But remember - you travelers won't miss anything because:
All Pre-Carnaval activities are performed :
  • once on Saturday in a grand ballroom ticketed event where the locals attend and
  • then AGAIN on Sunday in the downtown area for FREE so tourists and more locals can see!

    ALL Carnaval activities (locals and tourist) are listed so if you have any questions please feel free to contact us!
