During this week we enjoyed the Cozumel Carnival, this is an old tradition on the island and all residents and visitors have fun during this days. There are several ways to live the Carnival, some people attend to the car parade called “el paseo” on the main avenue Rafael E.Melgar, others go to live concerts most of them of Salsa and latin music, but there is another fun tradition: hire the “comparsas”. A “comparsa” is a group of people who participate in a dancing choreography, there is a contest based of the age group and residents on the island put a lot of effort to become the best one. After the contest on the next days of carnival you can hire this groups to attend to your house or business, as part of the tradition you invite some lunch and drinks after the dancing.
In Mundaca Vacations we loved this Caribbean traditions so this year we hire the “comparsas” for our guests at our signature villas “Villas Mundaca” (www.villasmundaca.mx). We had great time watching this amazing kids and teens giving their best to make Cozumel Carnival a colorful and fun event. Of course we invite everyone a delicious “lechon” a baby pork slow cooked served in tacos with habanero spicy.
I leave this photos to encourage you to make a reservation and attend next year during Carnival season.
