When is it this year? Does anyone know if the light parade will take place this year in Playa? If so when. time and where is the best place to see it?
A few years ago we happen to be out and stumbled upon it. It was cool. I thought it was a week before Ash Wednesday and that is Feb. 14th this year but would love to have that confirmed if anyone has the deets on this...

carnival in playa del carmen

I was referring to the parade in Playa. The site you suggested is about Cozumel. Maybe Playa has stopped its parade?

My wife mentioned that some of the festivities are going to be held outside of the downtown area this year. As the government slowly moves over to the other side of the highway, many other things are following.

So, I googled it and sure enough

Municipio de Solidaridad | CARNAVAL 2018

Quote:
Habrá paseos de los carros alegóricos en Villas del Sol y la Noche de Carnaval en la colonia Luis Donaldo Colosio.


Las fiestas carnestolendas se llevarán a cabo del 6 al 13 de febrero en el nuevo Palacio Municipal.
En conferencia de prensa, el Gobierno de Solidaridad anunció que este año el Carnaval 2018 “Pasión por Playa del Carmen” se llevará a cabo en diversas colonias de Playa del Carmen y Puerto Aventuras, tales como Luis Donaldo Colosio y el fraccionamiento Villas del Sol, del 6 al 13 de febrero, con el fin de reforzar y mantener las tradiciones de nuestro municipio.
West side of the highway, Colosio and Villas del Sol. Looks like they are trying to keep it more local and less touristy. Not that it was all that touristy to begin with. Cozumel pushes theirs as a tourist event. No so much here.

I don’t know (well, I do) about Playa, but Cozumel rocks Carnaval.
Just amazing.
Playa should take notes.
