It's that time of year again, when the island of
Ambergris Caye comes alive with the sights and
sounds of our neighbours on the American mainland.
The tenth annual Costa Maya Festival kicks off on
August sixteenth and runs through the nineteenth.
One highlight of the event is the Reina de la Costa
Maya Pageant to be held on the festival's opening
night. The five contestants, hailing from Belize,
Mexico, Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador, will be
publicly presented on August eighth at the Biltmore
Plaza in Belize City. Most San Pedro Hotels will be
offering special rates for Belizeans, but the public is
asked to book early to avoid disappointment.
