Cozumel’s Carnival 2011

Cozumel's Carnival 2011

Each year, since 1908, Cozumel celebrates its Carnival, the island’s time-honored pre-lenten festival. Grandparents, adults, teenagers and children alike come together to participate in the harmonically colorful and musical explosion. Within the Mexican-Caribbean, Cozumel displays the most popular and authentic Carnival Celebration; providing a more traditional and family oriented event. Locals and visitors enjoy five days of fun that includes parades, floats, traditional regional food, music and dancing. One of the highlight events of the festivities is the Comparsa Ball that features and incredible dance competition, not to be missed.
