Cozumel always makes a great
effort to put on the best light show every year.
Most people understand that Christmas is the celebration of the birth of
Jesus Christ. Cozumel in the past has always been very strict in
observing this. Of course there have always been an abundance of lights.
Every house from the biggest to the most modest will go out of their way
to dress up the outside with every manner of lights as well as manger
scene complete with the three kings and baby Jesus surrounded by farm
animals and of course Mary and Joseph.
And as with every year there are always the small children that come to your door that offer to
sing you a traditional Mexican Christmas song. Small groups of
religious parades dominate the island during this very special time of
year as well.
It doesn't hurt that the weather is absolutely perfect and tropicool
during this time of year while the USA and Canada are dealing with ice
and snow storms of record proportions.
The reason why I decided to write this web site was to showcase just how
beautiful the Melgar (the main waterfront street) is during Christmas.
It is always done up and sets the tone for a Merry Christmas and a Happy
New Year!! Christmas has always been a magical time to
come to Cozumel and the weather combined with the festivities marks the
beginning of our "high season". So make sure to make your reservations well in advance as the best vacation rentals book up fast!
I hope that you enjoy the slide show below. The pictures convey the sense of lighting that you will see if you are planning
to come during this very special time of the year. Most of all, we wish
you the Merriest Christmas and Happiest New Year ever!

Christmas day and lights
Enjoy the thrill of celebrating Christmas on our tropical paradise. This is
not the most popular time of the year to come just because of the lights
and decorations. There is a magic in the air that can only be felt during this
time of year. If you have never experienced the island at Christmas and New Years
week you don't know what you are missing. For all others; welcome back!
