Delegates enjoy San Pedro as they gear up for the 2012 Reina del la Costa Maya Pageant

After a visit to Cayo, the girls made their way over to Ambergris Caye where their island activities began when islands residents got their first glimpse of the contestants at a dinner and dance hosted by the world Famous Fido’s Restaurant and Bar.

At Fido’s the girls enjoyed delicious food, were serenaded by the live band performing onstage and introduced themselves to everyone in San Pedro. Then the fun began… the ladies didn’t shy away from dancing and enjoying the fun atmosphere at Fido’s and even spent time mingling and chatting with the crowd as the night went on. The beauty and charm of the delegates surely made the night a great time to remember and of course, Miss Honduras celebrated her birthday properly with a surprise cake given to her from her fellow contestants and the Costa Maya Festival Committee.

Following the night at Fido’s was “Noche Tropical” hosted by the Official Resort of the Reina de la Costa Maya, Ramon’s Village, where the delegates were officially introduced as contestants for the pageant. After official introductions each girl then received their sash from Miss San Pedro, Yakarelis Hernandez and Miss Top Celebrity 2012 Christine Syme, which marked the commencement of their journey to becoming La Reina de la Costa Maya. Guests then got the opportunity to admire the lovely contestant as they showcased traditional costumes from their homeland followed by a fashion show where they ladies graced the stage with outfits from MoonDancer Boutique and as a special treat and perhaps in appreciation for all the love and cheer she’d been getting since in Belize, the birthday girl, Miss Honduras displayed her talents as performed a danced to the rhythm of traditional Honduran Punta.

Then on Sunday, July 29th, it was off to the waves and reef of the Caribbean where ‘las reinas’ were taken on a ride up north off the coast of Ambergris Caye on a full day Catamaran sailing adventure. Always a highlight for the contestants, the ladies boarded SEAduced by the Belize’s 30ft Catamaran and made their way up to Mexico Rocks and ventured down to the depths of the ocean, walking on the sea floor with Discovery Expeditions Sea Trek.

Costa Maya girls enjoying a lunch at Mata Chica Resort After a delicious lunch at the impressive Mata Chica Resort’s award winning restaurant Mambo, it was time to head down to the Hol Chan Marine Reserve and swim with sharks and sting rays and the world famous Shark/Ray Alley. The beauties showed a little bit of brawn as they fearlessly and excited jumped into the water to swim with the sharks and had a wonderful time playing with the rays in the waters of Belize.

“This year the national costume competition is in two parts—the first part was a preliminary cultural competition which was held on Saturday night at the Ramon’s village. The girls were on the runway in attire from moon dancers as well as they displayed their cultural costumes. The scores from that cultural costume competition will be added to tomorrow night’s national costume competition scores and we will then determine a winner for the best costume award.”

The beauty ambassadors will compete in four areas of competition; National costume, swimwear, evening wear and final answer. While here, the delegates have been getting a tour of the jewel.

“They went over to San Ignacio where they had a photo shoot on the Cahal Pech Ruin. During the week they have been visiting various sites and restaurants here on Ambergris Caye like: Mambo, Matachicas; they’ve been to the Caprice Bar and Grill at the Holiday Hotel—they’ve just been having a really great time and of course the hospitality here in Belize and on San Pedro are always top notch.”
