A Personal Note from Sherri "Cozumel Carnaval 2016 is Here!"
Sherri Davis - Owner/Operator CozumelInsiderDuring the years 2000 - 2006 I had the privilege of serving on the Municipio's Carnaval Committee. Part of my duties included fundraising within the American community of islanders. The donations received were used to provide financial assistance to the kinder, grade school and high school group comparsas wanting to compete and participate in Carnaval. Assisting children of all ages to be able to participate from a young age ensures the Carnaval tradition will stay alive for years to come.

So for those of you who so generously donated all those years ~ many years totaling more than US$ 10,000 in donations ~ please come, join us for Carnaval and see the fruits of your endeavors! For those kiddos of 2000 - 2006 who received the financial aid are now late teens and early 20's and many are vying for the King and Queen positions as well as participating in new and different comparsa groups other than those associated with their schools.

Cozumel Carnaval is serious business each year ~ it's an event that enjoys almost 150 years of tradition on the island so it's one of those truly authentic events of the island that is not necessarily designed with tourism in mind! It's a "local" tradition and as such, the scheduling and ticket sales are designed with locals in mind. The tourism element of Carnaval does exist though since most all shows and competitions that go on are also done "free" in the open air parks for tourists to enjoy. And then of course, there are the parades which everyone can enjoy. Pre-Carnaval events are still underway and continue until next week when Carnaval officially begins so there is still time to get yourself a ticket and get down here to enjoy all the festivities!

Meanwhile, to illustrate the magnitude of these Carnaval King and Queen competitions, I've posted below a video from the event held Saturday night to elect the King and Queen of Cozumel Carnaval 2016. The video is a short compilation and keep in mind each candidate's show is typically 20 - 30 minutes long and involves hundreds of dancers. It's not the best video you'll ever watch, in fact this was for my own personal use really and wasn't intended to be viewed by others. However, in the end, I simply felt the video demonstrates the enthusiasm, dedication and magnitude of effort that goes into Cozumel Carnaval each year and why I stay so excited about it all the time!

So this is the show of the King candidate who did actually end up winning and will be crowned Cozumel Carnaval King 2016 in coronation ceremonies to be held next week. A true Carnavalero at heart ~ congratulations "Chuno" on a job well done!!

It is very cold here, it snowed last night. Welcome home to us right?! Just wanted to send an email thanking you for making our experience the best ever in sunny Cozumel. We wanted to let you know that the day we spent at your PalMar Beach Club we had your homemade tamales, (which are my favorite, by the way!) and they were excellent. Also we think that you have very good employees, Juan (there at the beach club/your house) we especially appreciated him, he treated us very well and we just wanted you to know that. Thanks again for the ride to the ferry, we made the 10:00! Also we were very thankful for your advice to stay there in Playa. We were able to get a room and just enjoy our last day on the beach which is what I really wanted. We were within walking distance from the bus that took us to the airport the next morning so it was all very convenient. You were very helpful and we will definately recommend your villas to anyone going there in the future. K & J Gilbert ~ Unknown

Tressa Bush ~ Tennessee

I must admit, booking our excursion through you and not the cruise ship was unsettling but once we got to your facility all of our doubts were gone. Your park and staff were first class, professional, friendly and even the dophins looked happy. Thank you for a truly once in a life time experience. Your quick response to my e-mails was also appreciated. I can assure you I will recommend your park to anyone that tells me they are going on a cruise. Thanks again. Andressen Family ~ Belle Chasse, LA USA

My husband and I lived in Cozumel for just over 6 months and completly LOVED it! We spent most of our time on the other side of the Island where it is just a completely different world. I highly recommend Cozumel to anyone travelling to the Mayan Riviera. I know so many people who go to Cancun, but have never been to Cozumel even though it is only about 40 minutes away! Take advantage of this beautiful Island!!! A. McIntosh ~ Toronto, Canada

Hello: Sorry about all the calls and e-mails yesterday ~ it appears that we had a problem with yahoo email and receiving your confirmations. But I had your staff send the confirmations to my work e-mail and all is good. Your staff was very helpful, customer service friendly and courteous and I think your agency is great! My wife is a travel/booking agent and she agrees with me and plans to use your services in the future to book excursions for her clients. Thanks again and have a good day; Michael Weinberger ~ not given
