Cornwalls’ All-Inclusive Cancun Christmas At The Chemainus Theatre

Cornwalls’ All-Inclusive Cancun Christmas is a wonderful blend of family, light-hearted cheesiness, and touching moments! The perfect Christmas tradition.

Christmas. It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

Family, friends, decorations, food (oh the food!), and traditions all combine to make the holiday special. I think it’s the traditions that put it over the top.

What are your Christmas traditions?

Here in the Traveling Islander family we all decorate the tree together. And our ornaments tell the story of our family…the memories we’ve experienced, the places we’ve vacationed…and as we decorate, we travel down memory lane and retell our stories.

We eat really good food and play a lot of games. As the kids grow, new traditions can be formed. I realized this year that we have created a new wonderful tradition.

We all go to The Chemainus Theatre and spend the evening together eating really good food and enjoying a good Christmas show.

This year, come see Cornwalls’ All-Inclusive Cancun Christmas at The Chemainus Theatre.

It’s a light-hearted tale of the Cornwall family trying to do something new by traveling to Mexico over the holiday. But it’s so much more that just a story.

Get transported back to the 1980s of big hair, matching outfits and bright neon colours as you sit back and enjoy the ups and downs of the Cornwall family.

Have you ever tried to change a tradition?

You know the stakes are high to make sure everything is perfect. And how about flying over Christmas? Finding that perfect flight without breaking the bank is a feat in itself. Add to that the pressure of having the perfect Mexican experience while trying to save a few dollars at an all-inclusive resort and you have the Cornwalls’ Christmas.

But don’t take it too seriously.

This show is a wonderful blend of family, light-hearted cheesiness, and touching moments. From start to finish, this musical will keep you amused as you peek in on the Cornwall family and their interactions both with each other and resort staff.

The music keeps getting better as the show progresses and finishes with a big bang at the hotel’s karaoke celebration.  Written by Chemainus’ own Mark DuMez and Nicolle Nattrass, it’s a fun show for the whole family. So put on your sunscreen and settle in for a good chuckle.

If you haven’t already, make The Chemainus Theatre part of your own Christmas tradition this year! See availability. 

Part of the fun of the tradition for us is starting the night off with dinner at the Playbill Dining Room.

The food, the service, the ambiance…perfection. On a Friday night, you’ll find build your own taco salad (to keep with the theme of Cancun), turkey and stuffing, and orange and ginger glaze snapper (my personal favourite). But the highlight is always the incredible array of delectable desserts.

I believe my son’s eyes just about popped out of his head when he saw the chocolate fountain! But I gotta say, seeing that fountain helped him eat a good dinner. His face just lit up every time he’d put a strawberry in the pour of chocolate.

So come for a night of fun, memory-making and keep the tradition alive with the Cornwalls’ All-Inclusive Cancun Christmas.

Feliz Navidad!
