A Personal Note from Sherri "Cozumel Carnaval 2015 is Here!"
Sherri Davis - Owner/Operator CozumelInsiderAnd YES, just like that ~ It’s here already: Cozumel Carnaval 2015! It fell very early on the calendar this year so Cozumel Carnaval 2015 is upon us and as usual it is an incredibly colorful, noisy and fun time of year! This is such a long time island tradition, that its occurrence permeates activities everywhere throughout the island. Competition dance groups are driving all over town and blocking streets with their trucks and sound systems as they perform for neighborhoods and excite folks for the parades. Parking and getting around downtown is near impossible because of all the extra Carnaval activities going on up there. And then of course back in town where folks live, the fabric and craft stores are jammed with folks running from store to store looking for that last bit of glitz to add to their costume. It’s just a fabulous part of life here this time of year ~ Carnaval.

A sequin on a lapel here, a glob of glitter there on a skirt or a wad of fabric stapled together and hot glued to the top of an oddly shaped hat seem to be the way to raise a Carnavalero’s spirits. I know it does mine! Folks fearlessly try any combination of things because after all ~ it only has to stay put together for 3 nights of parades! And all Carnavaleros try to help each other with costume dilemmas ~ “oh I saw orange feathers at such and such store” or “yes, they have purple wigs just around the corner.” And of course if you happen to have anything in your own personal “Carnavalero” stash of costume supplies that can help some one with a sparkle dilemma, it’s obligatory to disclose and turn it over! After all ~ it’s about sharing the fun and participating!

Don't Miss Cozumel Carnaval!!Most folks design and make their own costumes as well as the parade floats, so there are a lot of trailers pulled up in front of houses right now all over the neighborhoods. In a matter of days the trailers are transformed into everything imaginable so they can be in the Carnaval parades. At night, the beer coolers and snacks come out as the guys string wires on the trailers to try to rig up lights and music with generator power while the gals spray paint and glitter things up all over the float. As I drove around yesterday, I saw a fine looking giant shark being glittered ~ maybe they’ll put folks inside the mouth or something…who knows? Then later in the day I spotted a jumping frog coming to life in another part of town as communities come together and join in the fun that only Carnaval can create. Finally I passed by the location where all of the 'big' floats are being put together ~ those that the Carnaval Royal Court will ride on and wow ~ do those look impressive this year!

Hopefully you are HERE on the island with us and can enjoy this fantastic week of celebration with us and if not, please do visit our Cozumel Carnaval section of the website where we have over a decade of Carnaval pics already posted. I'm excited to say that we've acquired a wonderful collection of Carnaval photos from the 90's that we hope to get posted this year too! But first ~ we'll get back to posting THIS year's Carnaval photos!! Have fun and enjoy Cozumel Carnaval 2015!!

Less than an hour ago, I booked a dolphin swim package through your website. You have already confirmed my order with exactly what we wanted! I was really in a panic because when I tried to book directly through the Dolphin website, they said there was nothing available. I had read great things about your company on the on one of the popular message boards. I have to agree they are true! Thanks so much for your prompt service! I know this experience will be a great memory for my kids! L. Walker ~ Crosby, TX

Sherri...thank you again so very much for your fantastic website and for your excellent stories on life in Cozumel. We fellow Texans that are not fortunate enough to actually live there are able to do it through you and we are all extremely grateful...and incredibly envious! Having been an airline employee until retirement I have been lucky to have been down island over 20 times and it NEVER gets old. I thought I knew all about Cozumel, but was delighted to learn of new things and places through you and your website. Your current posting of how you came to Cozumel was so cool. You really need to work on that book! Congrats on this milestone, and continued luck and success in all you do. See you in September for our annual trip down for my birthday and Mexican Independence Day. M. Goodwin ~ Dallas, Texas

Sherri, I did receive both email confirmations. Thank you again for your great customer support and service in getting these activities scheduled for me. I will recommend your site to all of my friends who visit the island. Thanks again!! A. Washburn ~ Not Given

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
