Carnival?

This will be our 3rd time in Cozumel but our first time during Carnival. Some of the women in our group were wondering if they should bring costumes? Or is this just a local thing and we enjoy the parades and entertainment?

Costumes are fine for spectators. It's all about letting loose and having fun -- in a family-friendly way. Vendors also have masks, beads, all kinds of stuff with flashing lights, wigs, hats, noisemakers, etc for sale around town, in the plazas, and along the parade route. Also lots and lots of beer and good eats...

The most important thing is you have to know how to spell it. It is Carnaval!

Last year when we went we made arrangements to be on a float! It was one of the best times ever! We danced and had a great time - a very different perspective from being a spectator. We will be on the float again this year - hopefully for two of the parades!

Cozumel Carnaval is a fun event. The largest in the area, and one of the largest in Mexico,the Merida Carnaval is being moved this year from the center to an outlying location. Many merchants are actually happy with this because it was disruptive to business. Also reading that Cancun will do the same this year and relocate theirs from the center. But in Cancun, I am reading many locals are not happy because the new area has a history of gang problems! So, its good Cozumel´s remains a family event.
