Maribel Guardia

It is now official; the Costa Maya Committee has confirmed the participation of sensuous Maribel Guardia as the main star for this year's festival to be held August 15th - 18th. The Costa Rican actress/singer will perform on Saturday, August 17th in a show that is sure to impress all. This vivacious beauty is well known in Latin American and abroad for her energetic and provocative style on stage. Maribel has appeared in many Mexican soap operas and has delighted large audiences in concerts throughout Latin America. She just recently finished filming a soap opera entitled "Aventuras en el tiempo."

    Maribel Guardia is the mother of six year-old Juliancito, a child she shares with the talented singer Joan Sebastian. Maribel Guardia is known for her unique style of dress, almost always donning a cowgirl hat that accents her revealing outfits. She is considered a sex symbol by many of her fans, and according to one Mexican magazine, she considers this an honor. The entertainer also says she enjoys that men look at her with admiration and respect at the same time, because even though she likes being "sexy" she does not like vulgarity. Although her sensuality is important to her she says that inside she is a totally different woman, one who likes to be valued for her mind and her feelings. Ms. Guardia states she is very conscious that beauty fades and that is why she has strived to value other things in life, such as spirituality, closeness to God and other virtues that, although they are not visible, are very important to her life.

    Maribel Guardia's show at the upcoming Costa Maya Festival is sure to delight the entire family. So, start saving now and do not miss the opportunity of seeing this dynamic superstar.

     The Costa Maya Committee also received a very exciting telephone call from National Geographic Magazine inquiring about the festival. According to one of the festival directors, National Geographic is in the process of writing an article focusing on Central American cultures and festivals and wanted to confirm information pertaining to the Costa Maya Festival to include in the story. The director told The San Pedro Sun that he was impressed that such a prestigious magazine is recognizing the Costa Maya Festival. The article will certainly help to promote this country, which is one of the main objectives of the Costa Maya Committee. Although the date this article will be issued was not disclosed, it is something to look forward to.

    Also confirmed are the ever-entertaining "Santino's Messengers" band from Belize City who will perform at the festival.

    The festival committee is still working on other details such as the Reina de la Costa Maya Pageant, entertainment, etc. More information will be disseminated by The San Pedro Sun as it becomes available.
