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!!

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

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

What a great Experience!!! We booked our excursions through this website with a slight bit of apprehension. We figured it would be safer to book through our cruise ship since this was our first time going to Cozumel. Boy am I so thankful we didn't. Our cruise ship (which we thoroughly enjoyed) had many excursions organized with tons of people in each excursion. By booking through INSIDER we were definitely given smaller groups to be with. We did the Atlantis Submarine excursion and we saved almost 100 dollars right there!!! We also booked a Resort Scuba with Eagle Ray Divers. We had 1-on-1 attention with Antonio (the owner), our own boat to go out on, and got personalized attention with the lesson/dive. I know if we had booked on the cruise ship there probably would've been many other people ...
Also, we originally booked a car rental for that Saturday morning. Jacqueline @ Cozumel Insider, called us at home prior to our cruise to inform us of some minor scheduling changes. She then suggested that the rental car may not be neccessary due to our number of excursions and our limited time. Due to her advice we cancelled our car rental which was the wise thing to do. This shows that this company has a lot of integrity and is not out there just to make a buck on the unsuspecting tourist. Next year we will definitely book through Cozumel Insider, we will recommend this company to all our friends, and we plan on booking with Antonio for more scuba next time!!!!

Thank you today for your help with our Dolphin Discovery reservation! Fantastic customer service, just as the reviews stated! H. Eslinger (Jan. 2015) ~ Colorado Springs, CO USA

I just wanted to let you know that the private charter van service was outstanding. Thanks so much to you and your staff for arranging for the beverages on board and the driver was great. We will be visiting Cozumel again will always be utilizing yours and Uniper's assistance. R. Lee Family ~ Colorado
