Lots of lobster in Belize

Succulent seafood is the plat du jour in Placencia

Belize is favoured by holidaymakers because it is ideal for lazy, lethargic days by the sea, accessible because everyone speaks English and architecturally exciting because of the abundance of tranquil Mayan temples.

However, the seas are set to become a little more frantic in June, when the Lobsterfest returns to the picturesque village of Placencia.

Taking place in the last full weekend of the month – June 23rd to the 25th – the party is a celebration of shellfish, music, handicrafts and local delicacies.

Fresh lobsters caught during the day are turned into meals and pies then served from stalls and tents that are scattered around the village.

Visitors can wash down their crisp crustacean eats with seaweed shakes or a spot of alcohol, before dancing to carnival music from the All-Star Steel Band. There will also be games for all the family, including the Pickled Parrot Tug-O-War.

However, it is not just Placencia that is having all the fun in June. Elsewhere in Belize, partying starts on June 26th in San Pedro for St Peter's Day.

The celebrations are launched with a boat parade in the early morning, where boats and fishermen are blessed in a ceremony.

After that it is music and dancing for locals and holidaymakers. Many of the dances depict a period of Belize's history, making the event both enjoyable and educational.

While neither event is as raucous as carnivals you might find in Brazil or Cuba, they are good-natured and lively, yet chilled out enough to make them ideal for the family.
End of story

I'll be in Placencia next week (1st visit). Will I be able to get lobster then or does the Lobsterfest in June mark the season opener?
