Sonora Dinamita and Alison Hinds confirmed for 2017 International Costa Maya Festival

After Hurricane Earl caused the 2016 International Costa Maya Festival® to be cancelled, organizers are thrilled to announce that the show is on for Thursday, August 4th through Sunday, August 6th. This year, Costa Maya will be celebrating its 25th Anniversary, which means the committee is working extra hard to make sure Ambergris Caye has with the best week-long festivities of dance, music, pageantry, food and drinks!

As is tradition, the festival will take place at the Honorable Louis Sylvestre Stadium in San Pedro Town. Thursday night will be Pageant Night, in which eight beautiful contestants will vie for the title of Reina de La Costa Maya. 2015’s Gabriela Vanessa Salazar Valle still holds the title, and this year, the Pageant seeks the participation of all the Central American countries: Belize, Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and Panama. We already have confirmed the first gorgeous contestant, and she is Miss Costa Rica.

After the official opening ceremonies and presentation of the new queen, there will be a variety of cultural presentations on Friday, August 4th. Those will be followed by the highly anticipated soca vibes of the undisputed Queen of Soca, Alison Hinds!

Saturday, August 5th is International Night, and bringing the Latino flavor to the evening will be “La Sonora Dinamita”. La Sonora Dinamita is a Colombian musical group that specializes in cumbia, with popular hits like ‘Mi Cucú’, ‘Que Nadie Sepa Mi Sufrir’, ‘La Parabólica’, ‘El Viejo Del Sombrerón’, ‘Escandalo’, ‘Qué Bello’, and ‘La Suavecita’. Bring your dancing shoes, because Saturday will be one for the books!

Sunday is traditionally beach day, and all festival attendees are encouraged to soak in the scenic beauty of our waters, along with the daytime festivities that businesses/sponsors will be hosting in honor of the weekend!

Panama’s Felix LT to perform at Costa Maya

The International Costa Maya Festival is a celebration of art, music, culture and entertainment. With an international pageant and fun line-up of performances, the committee is tasked with discovering performers for everyone to enjoy. One such artist gracing this year’s festival stage is Panamanian Reggaeton singer Félix LT. He will make his Belize debut on Friday, August 4th, priming festival-goers before the Undisputed Queen of Soca, Alison Hinds, takes the stage.

A versatile performer, Felix’s “Romantic Style” lyrics and harmonies are based on daily life. Under the production of renowned music producer Carlos Ariza, better known as Caito, he is currently promoting his latest song entitled “No Quiero”. He has also recorded several remixes with international artists from Honduras and Belize, including a remix of the song “Húndele el Clutch” with Renato, Supa G, MC Loco, Glen King and Yoel el flow del movimiento. Be sure to swing by the festival to check out this rising star, and of course, enjoy some reggaeton fun!

Miss Costa Maya 2017 hosts announced

Popular San Pedro TV/radio personality and Reef Radio owner Eiden Salazar returns to co-host Miss Costa Maya 2017. No stranger to the Costa Maya stage, Salazar has hosted the pageant for a number of years. This time he will be assisted by the beautiful Tanya Arceo.

Arceo was born in San Pedro, Ambergris Caye and raised in Benque Viejo del Carmen, Cayo. Arceo recently graduated in Guatemala with a degree in Broadcasting. She has had the opportunity to work with and learn from long-time professionals at Guatevision, such as Maria Luisa Gomez. This has allowed her to develop in a field in which she is very passionate about.

“For me it is a real honor to be part of Miss Costa Maya International. THANK YOU for this opportunity and for trusting in my ability and talent,” she said.

Salazar and Arceo will join forces to make Miss Costa Maya International 2017’s pageant final, the festival’s 25th anniversary scheduled to take place in San Pedro on August 3rd, one to remember for the next 25 years and beyond.
