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!!

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

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

Thoroughly enjoyed my two nights of turtle liberation! I have a few jealous friends who are very keen! Do you know how I would go about doing additional turtle releases? Thanks again for all your help! C. Shepherd (October 2015) ~ Milton Keyes, Buck U.K.

I am very happy that Josefina was my teacher. She tailored my Spanish classes specifically to my needs and to my level of knowledge. She made the lessons fun and informative and I have been able to begin speaking and understanding simple conversation after only 3 classes! Leah Rensfelt ~ Canada

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
