Held in Placencia, San Pedro and Caye Caulker to coincide with the opening of Belize’s Spiny Lobster season, Lobster Fest is likely the country’s most popular festival yet. In a typical year, huge block parties, live music, and fragrantly-charred grills combine for a bona fide seafood bacchanal. This year, Belize will observe a new open season for the Spiny Lobster, slated to run from July 1, 2021 to February 28, 2022. While we patiently await for the safe return of Lobster Fest in Belize, we’re taking the love of Lobster to San Pedro, Placencia, and Caye Caulker in a different way with our 2021 Lobster Tour!

Fun Fact: Caye Caulker’s Lobster Fest was Belize’s first, started in July of 1994 by the Islanders Veterans Football Club. ‘

Though things may look differently this year, celebrate this annual seafood fête by paying homage with all the good eats and savvy stays, thanks to one central page: The Belize Lobster Tour 2021.
