It still feels very odd, but Carnaval in Cozumel started today. It was postponed from its normal time in February until now because government officials did not want to hold the festivities and large gatherings when it was not safe due to Covid. So, here we go! Thanks to Stingray Villa for posting the schedule for the coming month! If you can make it down, please check with Residencias Reef Rentals for a luxury condo rental during your stay! The following was taken from the Stingray Villa website.
