Famous Traditions Held In Cozumel Mexico

Every year in February, the island turns upside down. The streets are dressed for the occasion and filled with dancing. Cozumel's Carnival is the most important carnival in the southeast of Mexico. Not as big and famous as the one in Maztlán or Veracruz but with the magic of the Mexican Caribbean and the warmth of the people from Cozumel.History tells us that the Carnival festivities originated from ancient rites devoted to the Gods of wine and flesh. Through time it has been banned in several epochs and countries because of the excesses of the festivity. Carnival is held in February and culminates on Carnival Tuesday, just before "Ash Wednesday" which marks the beginning of a time of religious meditation.In Cozumel Carnival festivities last for two weeks, but preparation for those two weeks has been going for the whole year prior to them. During that year the candidates for queen and king begin forming their comparsas, designing their costumes, selecting music and the dances they will perform during Carnival.Carnival in Cozumel is a very special festivity because it is the result of the interest and the will of the people of Cozumel. Schools, employees, neighbors all organize to make their costumes, to dress their cars and rehearse the dances they will perform. Carnival is truly a community and family event that is deep in the roots of Cozumel.
