The 2021 Lobster Fest, one of the most anticipated and delicious festivals celebrated in Belize, has been postponed in Caye Caulker due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and its restrictions.
In Belize, the Lobster Festival is annually celebrated in the three locations of San Pedro, Caye Caulker and Placencia. Here, visitors and locals from far and wide come together to feast on these delicious crustaceans! Not to mention, also enjoy a month full of entertainment across the three locations. The opening of the season has become a favorite time for tourism—blue skies, tropical breeze, sunshine, and lobster, are just a few of the many great reasons to visit Belize during the summer.

For 2021, unfortunately, the festivities will have to wait until COVID-19 restrictions allow. But, this does not mean you still can’t enjoy a nice home cooked lobster dish once the season reopens! The 2021/2022 Spiny Lobster season officially opens on July 1, 2021 and runs until February 28, 2022.
In a typical year, Belize’s Lobster Fest marks the official kick-off event for summer in Belize, and Caye Caulker’s Lobster Fest is historically the original—started in July of 1994 by the Islanders Veterans Football Club. Though things may look differently this year, celebrate this annual seafood fête by ticking off all the ‘must stops’ in Placencia, Caye Caulker and San Pedro! Find them all in one convenient list with the Belize Lobster Tour—full of savings on where to stay, where to eat, and what to do.
