United States' Independence Day was celebrated in Cozumel, earlier this month, with tourists, locals and the island's American community enjoying a special event downtown.

The party included live music and DJs, food and drink from local restaurants, clowns, contests and face painting - with plenty of stars and stripes, of course.

The festivities were organised by local tourism bodies in cooperation with a group of island businesses, including Cozumel 4 You marketing and promotions, Rock 'n Java bar and grill, the Blue Angel restaurant and hotel and Señor Frog's bar and restaurant.

4th of July in Cozumel.

It is the third year in a row that a celebration has been held in Cozumel to honor the history, culture and traditions of Mexico's northern neighbor.

One of the organizers, Laura Wilkinson, from Cozumel 4 You, said the event was "a huge success" and thanked Punta Langosta Mall for stepping in to provide the venue, as local elections meant the main square downtown was unavailable.
