The month of August was one of great excitement and activity! Looking at the month at a glance San Pedro seemed like the place to be! The island hosted the annual Costa Maya Festival and the 2nd Annual Grand Caribe Deep Sea Classic Fishing Tournament.

Costa Maya Festival

Costa Maya Festival, the largest cultural festival on the island took place on August 2nd -5th. The four-day celebration started out with a bang with sensational entertainment. Of course, Ivy Queen got crowds going performing hit songs likeCuentale, DimeandQue Lloren. Surely, the highlight of all was the crowning of Miss Costa Maya International 2018-2019, the largest beauty pageant held in Belize.

This year Ms Honduras, Mary Cruz Cardona Galindo took home the title as “La Reina del Mundo Maya”. Ms. Costa Rica, Adriana Moya Alvarado placed 2nd runner up.
