The fun of Cozumel Carnival awaits you and we look forward to your arrival!

Carnival 2011 best showCozumel Carnival (pronounced Carnaval in Spanish) is one of the islands main events. It happens at the peak of high season when the weather is at its finest. Festivities attract thousands of people from all corners of the world. It starts the week before Fat Tuesday, or Mardi-Gras.

Cozumel Carnival 2014 was as as much fun as ever! Since Cozumel is constantly upgrading the, pedestrian walkways, downtown landscaping, and improvements all over the island; visitors are greeted in "tropicool" style! As with every year I took these photos of this years event as well as past years. If you would like to see hi definition video of this years, parade click here!

The park in front of the Palacio has a new stage set for shows and was a huge success last year and promises to be just as exciting this year. Cozumel has never looked better! If you missed this years event make sure you come to Carnival 2015! And if you haven't already made your reservations accommodations, make sure to check out: Casa Colonial!

The origins of Carnival are unclear, but most agree that it started as a pagan celebration in ancient Rome, or Greece. Balls were imported from Italy in the late nineteenth century, and had their golden era in the thirties, with legendary balls at the Copacabana Palace, and the Municipal Theater in Rio de Jinero.Carnival protect our reefs costume

There's much more to this extravaganza than the Parades. Street dancers randomly roam through town. It's loads of fun, free, and it happens all over the island. You are more than welcome to watch and participate. Besides the fun of a great Parade, there is live music, food, drinks and every manner of distraction in the town square. With so many people gathered together to have a great time how can you go wrong?!

You gotta have balls if you think this is not enough! Hey, don't get me wrong... We are talking about the fabulous balls and events leading up to the choosing of the King and Queen of Carnival. :0) If you have never been to the island during this very special time; you are really missing out on a great cultural experience. The "pre" carnival events happen at the Moby Dick, clubs, the newer Parque Andres Cozumel, and other venues in and around San Miguel! Pick out the right parties, and have a ball! Most of these events are for children of all ages (especially adults who like to act like kids)!

Island life has never been better and the weather is perfect! And since winter weather has started earlier than normal this year, it is never too soon to plan now for next years event.

So start planning for Cozumel Carnival 2016. We look forward to showing you Cozumel's wildest party of the year!

For many years we have been capturing images of the many facets of Carnival. These original photos of Carnival 2014 give you a pretty good idea of what everything looks like. But the experience is MUCH better then the photographs. The exciting sounds, fireworks, and rhythms of the night will make you want to come back year after year!

This spectacular event is Street Carnival in all its glory, filled with the most exotic characters you will ever see.

To give you an idea of what to expect from our annual bash I put together this slide show of Carnival 2013. But to get the full 3D affect you just have to see if for yourself!.

We hope that you are having a GREAT time; because we are!

Warm Regards from you know where!
