Some Local Customs that Strangers Find Unusual on Cozumel

Published on July 5, 2019 by skeeterseatery

Wholesome but unique, culturally-savvy but welcoming, Cozumel is a land of multiple dimensions, almost like that of the many dimensions of a kaleidoscope.

With some local customs that appear unusual to strangers in Cozumel, it is one place that celebrates its uniqueness in various ways. Locals dancing on the streets, parading with elaborate floats, costumes so bright and vivid, a plethora of music venues, and spontaneous exhibits which travel ward throughout the Cozumel are just some features of the “Carnaval” in Cozumel. As fun and exciting as it sounds, the Carnaval is a truly a spectacular event, worth a special trip to Cozumel. While locals indulge in the celebrations ensuing, often strangers find it a very unusual way of celebration.

Unlike the USA or other such countries where Santa Clause is the star of Christmas, Cozumel’s stars are the three kings- Los, Tres, Reyes. And guess what? Instead of exchanging gifts on 25th December, natives conduct the exchange of gifts on the 6th of January. Strange but fancy, right? You must be thinking why? It’s because of the twelve days these kings traveled to bring infant Jesus gifts for Christmas. We’re head over heels for this adorable view of celebrating Christmas distinctly.

Cool fact: Mexico and its cities, such as Cozumel truly celebrate their leaders. On the midnight of 15th September, all natives join in the Central Plaza to re-enact the event when Miguel Hidalgo invoked in the oppressed natives a sense to rise up against the Spaniards with the cry of “Long Live Mexico!” With firework lighting up the sky and music and dancing to celebrate their victory, a magical celebration ensues for the entire night. And they seal the deal with a national holiday for Mexico’s independence.

While these little celebrations and their causes might look unusual and strange to outsiders, what must not be forgotten is the demeanor and the zeal that the natives celebrate in. We’re all pumped up to see them first-hand, are you?

Meet The Author
On a vacation trip to Cozumel in 2008, we immediately knew we had to move! It was a time in our lives to listen to that little voice in our heads. We regrouped to lead a saner life. What’s not to love about a Mexican casa with a tropical garden and a cooling pool? Building our second vacation rental, we furiously went about renovations inside and out to create an oasis our guests could enjoy. We really focused on what we wanted as renters. We now love sharing our newest villa with others here in Cozumel. We work in the background with the guests providing an island escape. Silvia has extensive knowledge of the travel and resort industry from her time spent with Vista Del Mar Boutique Hotel, Cozumel Bar Hop tours, Odyssey Tours, and Royal Holiday Club. My background as the former owner of a restaurant helps me offer outstanding customer service to ensure your vacation dreams are reached. That little voice has never left us. By listening to our clients, we work to improve their vacation experience.
