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!!

Hello my name is Brent C. and I did the Turtle Observation & Release on June 27th. I can honestly not put into words how great and breathtaking the whole experience was! it has always been a dream of mine to watch turtles nest up close and personal but you guys topped that dream and did even better! I almost cried tears of joy when i found out I got to get up close and help remove the turtle eggs as she was laying them! I plan on becoming a marine biologist one day and this whole experience has pushed me farther into my passion for marine biology! I can not say thank you enough! Also cant forget the helpful crew of young men and women that helped us along the night and where ever so kind! Here is a picture of the green sea turtle I named April after she had laid her eggs! Thanks and God Bless Brent C ~ USA

Thank you so much for all your help! We took you tour to Chitchen-Itza in june. We were the couple that missed the tour because we did not get the wake up call. Because you went the extra mile with us (by finding us a tour operator that would honor our voucher the next day) I am extremely greatful. it certainly made our vacation. I will DEFINITELY recommend your website COZUMELINSIDER to anybody who will listen. thanks again! F. Escobar ~ not given

We will be leaving tommorrow for 2 week stay at Islamar villas and diving with Dive Paradise. All of this along with a car rental was booked through you guys. Not only did you have a professional attitude through all the e-mails in booking the original dates but at the last minute I extended my stay. You and your staff were especially kind through all of this. You got the car extended and went way out of your way to make sure everything was taken care of, not to mention letting me borrow your personal roller bag to go to the market. You extended everything with ease and you are a great asset to Cozumel and Mexico. This will be my 12 th trip and I will never work with anyone else from now on. Thank you Sherri. Jack J. Marshall ~ Enid Oklahoma, USA

I just wanted to let you know we really enjoyed our experience with the turtle salvation program this week. It was an amazing evening I will never forget. I will be sure to share the info with my local dive shops and SCUBA club when I return. I know that many others would love to participate and support the turtles. Thanks again and if you could pass along our appreciation to the biologists and other volunteers, we know it is all of your dedication that helps the turtles. J & D Lamb ~ Tucson, AZ

Thanks for a great website and facebook page. I can hardly wait to get back to my favorite island! Joey & Amy ~ USA
