Don Francisco and Wil and Dale
Yes it was! Don Francisco right here in San Pedro!
Chris was little on one of his visits to San Pedro. He was so excited that Francisca was taking him to see Don Francisco arrive at the airport. At that time he called Francisca "Isa" and he called Don Francisco "Iso".
The video below was shot sometime around 1993 or 94. Sabado Gigante was a TV show in Spain, and being featured on it was a big deal for San Pedro. I remember the excitement in town when Don Francisco came.
Can you believe how much the place (and the people) have changed since that show.
Mayor Danny, Will and Dale ...... the Barrier Reef Hotel ..... and sandy streets. Pretty darn cool.

Lamanai a long time ago! How can we forget that time when Don Francisco TV visited Lamanai and other nearby areas. Indian Church Village was still inside Lamanai reserve.
