Winning mother, Ercilia Martinez, checking in at Corona del Mar Hotel and Apartments. Corona del Mar is one of Ambergris Cayeís most spacious and comfortable hotels. Now with twelve rooms and four apartment suites, no longer do you have to visit with your new found friends, neighbors or family on the porch; now you can entertain or play cards, etc. in your own living room! Ö or seated around your own ďdining tableĒ in their large deluxe suites!!!
Throughout her weekend getaway in San Pedro, Ercilia received vouchers from various business offering wonderful gift packages for her and author of the winning essay, daughter Maritza Murcia.
These gifts included: Lunch at Wild Mangoís with award winning Chef Amy Knox, gifts awarded by Granielís Cabinet and superstore Wings.
Mrs. Martinezís weekend also included a shopping spree at Moon Dancer.
Dinner was made possible by Celiís Restaurant (pictured to the right) and Mickyís, home of the monster burrito.
Mrs. Martinez was pampered during a spa treatment at Maruba Day Spa, located on North Ambergris Caye, a short boat, golf cart or bicycle ride away.
However, how could a weekend in San Pedro be truly complete without experiencing the luxury provided on North Ambergris Caye. Offering her boat transfers were the captains at The Island Ferry. Once up north, she enjoyed a delightful lunch at the much acclaimed, highly reviewed Mata Chica Resort and Mambo Restaurant.
This was the first annual Motherís Day Extravaganza. Next year promises to have more prizes and surprises for that special mother and the author who writes the winning essay.
