Many Belizeans are preparing for their Easter Holiday, which starts on Good Friday, April 6 (for some on Holy Thursday) and continues until Easter Monday, April 9. Following long-time tradition for many families from all over the country, most of them are planning to head to La Isla Bonita. Hotel and airline bookings are proving to be at their busiest and business owners of San Pedro are preparing for the crowds.

Expect to see busy streets filled with both local and international tourists. The local water taxis have also added more trips to accommodate people travelling to and from San Pedro. People will be lucky to find accommodations at this point as hotel are booked; and golf cart rentals are out of available carts as well!

With lots of entertainment being provided by businesses all over the island, this weekend is looking up to be a very busy and fun-filled one. Just take a look at what all is expected to take place: Friday, April 6, 2012 and Saturday, April 7, 2012 – Island Invasion at Fidos Restaurant and Bar, Wet Willy’s Dock will be rocking the weekend with a Fiesta Tropical with a Latin band from El Salvador and On Saturday, April 7, 2012 - The San Pedro AIDS Commission Noche de Estrellas (imitations of artists at is best), to name a few.

A few Easter weekend events on Ambergris Caye

Easter is always the busiest weekend of the year in San Pedro. Many families come from mainland Belize to enjoy our beautiful island and if you have not made a reservation yet good luck as places are usually booked up by now. Below are just a few of the many Easter weekend events happening on Ambergris Caye. Walking the beach on Easter Sunday and seeing everyone out having fun is always one of my favorite Easter Activities on the island.

Scratching the Surface on Easter Saturday: Lion's Den, The Hotel, Palapa Bar and Dancing to Sinkronia at Wet Willy's

Yesterday, Easter Saturday, might have been the most happening day of the year in a town where something is always happening. There were tons of beach parties, DJs, visiting performers, bands, fundraisers...with all of these choices...where does one begin? The choice was easy. The Pancake Breakfast at the Lion's Den. Plus, it was my only chance to see the Easter Bunny.


We walked over the bridge to the Hotel where they were having a fundraiser for the kids' sailing club. Walter Castillo had an art show set up in the lobby.


Next stop? Palapa Bar. We continued our walk up the beach...a very pretty 10 minutes or so. It is impossible to take a bad picture at the Palapa Bar on a nice day. It's like a movie set.

Palapa Bar phoned the Coastal Express ferry for us so we could ride back to town. Enough walking for one day. A quick dip in the WARM sea was a must...

And we caught the boat. The beach all thru town was PACKED. People drinking, eating, swimming, dancing. Visitors from Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador...Belizeans from Belize City and the mainland...tourists. It's a fun, fun time (if you don't mind lots of people and loud music). I, personally, love Easter weekend!

Time for some dinner and off to the next stop. Wet Willy's for some salsa...cumbia...merengue...Latin music. The bar has some new owners and they are doing a bit of a rehab. Starting with a new paint job. The pier looks great.

The band from El Salvador was HUGE. Three singers, a full band and some butt cheek baring dancers.

The dance floor was packed when we left at about 2am.

ONE MORE STOP! Park food - bacon wrapped hot dogs with the works. Mayo, mustard, ketchup, grilled onion, cheese and bacon wrap. So so tasty at 2am and only $4bzd.

Central Park was packed with people and the lines were long at Daddy Rock's and Jaguar's. At 2am!

Food stand burgers also good - bacon fried onions cheese and a hotdog cut in half - we named it Homer Simpson burger for obvious reasons.
