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!!

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

Sherri and her staff did everything under the sun to help us get on one of their shore excursions. Phone calls and emails were promptly acknowledged and answered cheerfully and professionally. These are "home" folks; no need to worry about language or accents getting in the way of success. Book with confidence, and have fun! J Meyers ~ San Antonio, Texas

Hello, I will visit the island next weekend. I just want to thank you and your staff who make this website, because I´ve been checking a lot of websites, even those Trip Advisor, and yours has been much more useful to plan this trip. Specially because it has links to official websites from local beaches, tips about prices and ways to get somewhere. Good job! I´ll write again to tell you about the experience. C. Quijano (Feb. 2015) ~ Mexico

Thanks Sherri, we like to do business with people who care about what they are doing and not just out for money! R. McGough ~ U.S.A.

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
