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!!

We just got back from Cozumel last week and I'd like to thank you for answering all my questions and for setting us up on the Fury Snorkeling & Beach Party Tour and the van from Budget. This was the 4th time visiting the island and the 1st time that I didn't have the first bit of trouble with booking something online. Your service was great and I will be sure and book with you on my next trip. Thanks again! Danny Neal ~ Marshall TX

I have not even been to Cozumel yet - we will be traveling to Cozumel next year and I love it already. I am addicted to your site and love the live web cam. Your site is the first thing I pull up in the morning. Cant wait to get to Cozumel! Thank you! Laura Randall ~ Marshalltown, IA - USA

Just returned from Cozumel where we participated in the FP&M Turtle Salvation program and it was the highlight of our trip. Our guides picked us up at our hotel right on time. They were very nice and one spoke fantastic English. Being able to participate in the extraction of newly hatched baby sea turtles from their nests and then watching them scurry into the ocean was so amazing. There were 4 nests hatching that evening so we were interacting with baby turtles for several hours. Those little turtles are SO adorable and so VERY determined to get to the water. This activity exceeded our expectations. I would recommend it to anyone who loves nature and wants to help this endangered species. It is awesome that cozumelinsider.com donates its resources to handle the bookings for this activity to help raise funds for this great cause. Thanks for an awesome experience! T. Daily ~ Arizona

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
