What a great tradition! Cozumel's Carnaval is a tradition which has been passed down through many generations that celebrates a mixture of cultures that escaped to the warm embrace of Cozumel during the cold winter season. Dating back to the mid 1800's, Carnaval was started by young people dressed in vibrantly colorful costumes known as "Estudiantinas" or "Comparsas", who expresed themselves in the streets of Cozumel through the artform of dance, song, and fantasy.

The festivities of Carnaval peaked with 3 nights of lively, colorful parades that include harem girls, butterfly stiltmen, Royal Court floats, dance groups, and individuals in costume having fun and enjoying the festivities. All day long before the parades, groups were dancing throughout the streets of Cozumel, traffic was snarled and there's excitement in the air! Tradition of the past holds that Carnavaleros exchange flowers and candies with the parade watchers however, it seems the Mardi Gra beads are becoming very popular as well! Carnavaleros are rushing to get into costume to participate in the parade while crowds begin to line the streets hours in advance securing their own great view of the parade antics.

Where's the current dates? - Unlike other websites, CaribbeanChoice only publishes the official dates as released by the carnival organizer. Most other websites simply guess what next year's dates are. We don't do that. We want to make sure our information is as accurate as possible.

This page will be updated as soon as we get the official dates from the event organizer, or they post it on their official website, whichever comes first.
