Two Seasonal Cozumel Traditions

 

Visitors arriving to Cozumel in the run up for Christmas have the chance to learn about two local seasonal traditions.

In true Christmas spirit, islanders celebrate with 9 nights of songs, called Las Posadas, while children recite their own carols and carry decorated branches, in a similar custom known as cantando la rama.

Las Posadas, or "the lodgings", is the name given to the 9 nights from December 16 to 24, when the biblical journey of Mary and Joseph to Bethlehem is marked.
