Cozumel Carnival 2022

Whether you’re daydreaming of joining the Cozumel Carnival 2022 festivities or simply want to better understand this iconic holiday, read on for an extensive explainer that includes everything you need to know about Carnival, including how best to enjoy it in Cozumel.

When is Cozumel’s Carnival in 2022?

This year, Carnival day falls on March 1, 2022. Carnival festivities in Cozumel are scheduled to take place from Wednesday, February 23th through Tuesday, March 1, 2022. Parades start the weekend before Carnival, which is February 25–28, 2022. 

The Cozumeleno people determine their king and queen in fierce dance and talent competitions before choosing who will represent them in Carnival. Among other activities, they encourage individuals to take part in the body of dance that will establish the group of artists who will perform in the most original float. 

Where are the best Airbnbs to stay during Carnival?

Location is everything if you’re visiting Cozumel during Carnival because parking is difficult, and you’ll want to walk if you’re planning to consume alcohol. To remain close to the parades stay in the charming el Centro. This neighborhood is filled with boutique shops, top-notch restaurants, and the downtown festivities are just five minutes away.

Even if you don’t plan to visit Cozumel for Carnival in 2022, it’s a popular time to visit and never too early to start thinking about (or booking) a 2022 trip—in normal years, Airbnb’s sell out fast


The performers will drive you to dance with their marvelous moves and contagious dances. Multicolored costumes, ornate plumes, shimmering jeweled costumes, and that burning rhythm will roar through each intersection of The Isle of the Swallows.
