Cozumel Holds Election Carnival Royalty


More than 2700 carnival members came to support their favorite candidate on the big night of voting. The evening began with the Official Carnival  Ballet, which took to the stage with a suit emulating the fire that keeps the carnival spark alive. Later Fernando Ferráez opened this night of voting by introducing the four candidates for King and Queen of this edition of the Fiesta del Caribe.

Frank Alonso and his comparsa were the first to appear on stage. Presenting the “Lonchería Alonzos”, with fresh choreography and costumes consisting of fruit headdresses and kitchen utensils.

Then, Ana Zetina began her presentation with great elegance dressed in colorful feathers inspired by celebrations of the 500 years the encounter between two cultures.

Later, Eva Romo began her presentation with an extravagant style characteristic of the carnival, with feathers and Caribbean colors.

To close the night, Michelle Emporio delighted the carnival public with a purely Cozumel concept, extracting traditional elements such as the Fiesta del Cedral, and spectacular costumes with distinctive elements, such as colorful ribbons on one sleeve and back of the jacket.

After the presentations, the “Punto Cero” show, started while the carnival members went to the voting area to cast their vote for the candidate of their choice. At 2 o’clock in the morning they closed the  voting. The count was as follows: Frank Alonzo: 1444 votes,  Ana Zetina: 1136 votes, Eva Romo: 719 votes, and  Michelle Emporio: 407 votes.

Aurita’s Cozumel Corner

Hello everyone. I just read a question posted in Cozumel4you about problems getting United States Netflix and Hulu, etc. in Cozumel. Here is what I have in the Cozumel Sun on the subject. I have not updated the section in a while. Cablemas has improved somewhat as far as speed. I have kept them and added Telmex (Infinitum). Between the two companies I am ensured to have internet service at the community store where I have computers available to the neighborhood children to do their homework.

In this section you will learn what TV and cable services are available in Cozumel. Watching United States Television and Movies in Cozumel has come a long way since I first moved here. The internet has made available a wealth of options to enable us to connect. Life can get pretty lonely for those of us that are couch potatoes without our favorite television shows.

The following is a list of just SOME of the many options for watching TV. I use Chrome instead of Internet Explorer and change the language to English for the Latin America on-line sites.

Your Cable provider options are Cablemas, Cable de Cozumel, and Temex.










Other options are watching via your computer, laptop or IPad. You need to get a modum that has an United States IP address.

Libera Tu Red

Allows you to use services that just being in the United States could use. Services like Crackle, Vudu, Netflix, Pandora, Spotify, Fox, CBS, which are very different in Mexico or unavailable.  Libera tu Red Internet de EUA with Amaury.

Brandon with his new Glasses

Update on Brandon: His next scheduled appointment is in six months. A second eye operation is almost a certainty. As soon as I know the details, I will inform you. Thank you again for all of you that made the operation, medication, transportation, and his new glasses possible.

Update on my son Bartolo Martinez Martinez: The pins are out!!! We now have therapy for a few months. He is still in a lot of pain and his arm is swollen, but all of it is normal, considering the injury.

NEW Plumber/Electrician Recommendation: We were without water pressure and hot water for about four weeks. What a headache to heat water on the stove and bathe with buckets of water as the ancestors! Once again, a silver lining! We found a wonderful plumber / Electrician that has restored the hot water system and we actually have water pressure without the need of one of those pressure machines! His name is Leonides and he can be reached at 987-119-3594. He was fast, reliable, and professional!

Update on My Operation: My surgery, rescheduled for January 18, has once again been canceled due to emergencies at IMSS. The new date is February 8th.

Stop with the Plastic Straws!

Did you know that an estimated 71% of seabirds and 30% of turtles have been found with plastics in their stomachs? If we don’t act now, by the year 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish. We’ve made the change to compostable cups at Buccanos and are proud to be doing our part!

Welcome to the Cozumel Sun! Our goal at the Cozumel Sun website, Facebook Group, and Facebook page is to provide the latest news and information to the many English Speaking residents and visitors to Cozumel. Our secondary but equally important goal is to raise funds to help those in need in our beautiful island paradise. We meet these goals with the support of our sponsors and donations of cash and goods received from our readers. We utilize this media along with a community store that offers office and school supplies, internet and telephone access, Copying, Printing, Lamination, Book Binding, Gifts/Novelty items, as well as gently used clothing and housewares. I am a one-woman operation; we do not have paid staff. All help and suggestions are accepted graciously. Readers are welcome to provide articles, pictures, and reviews to both our website and Facebook pages.
