    The first of a bevy of beauties has confirmed participation for this year’s Reina de la Costa Maya Pageant. 25-year-old Diana Ingrid Martinez Pineda is a Psychology student at La Universidad Jose Simeon Cañas. Standing at 5’ 5", and measuring 32-25-26, this lovely brown-eyed brunette enjoys swimming and extreme sports. Diana will be joined onstage on August 5th, 2010 by delegates from Belize, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua and Panama, all vying for the crown, currently held by Nicaragua’s beautiful Maritza Rivas.
