The International Costa Maya Festival is a celebration of the Mundo Maya countries throughout Central America. The first festival was held in 1991 and was called the Sea and Air Festival. All eight Mundo Maya countries (Belize, Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and Panama,) participated. Dancers, cultural performers, and musical entertainers from these countries are hosted in San Pedro Town for three days of celebrations.
The festival is held during the month of August, and commences on the first Thursday of the month and ends on Saturday with the presentation of an International artist.
On Sunday, October 1st, the 2017-2018 fishing season of the Queen Conch (Strombus Gigas) officially opened. The season had been closed for the past three months since June.
Our favorite time of year is just around the corner, LOBSTER SEASON! Lobster season in Belize opens on June 15th every year and closes on February 15th. There is so much lobster available during the summers here that prices for this tasty treat are at their absolute lowest.
