Will You Be Taking Part In San Pedro’s Two-Week Long Lobster Crawl?

by Khaila Gentle

Belize’s spiny lobster season is open, and the festivities are now in full swing. Belize’s largest island and its most popular travel locale will be celebrating the Caribbean’s favorite crustacean between now and July 16th. So,  grab your Lobster Fest passports and put on your eating pants. Here’s what you can expect from San Pedro’s 2023 Lobsterfest and the two-week-long Lobster Crawl. 

Get Your Lobster Crawl Passports

It won’t get you through airport immigration, but the San Pedro Lobster Fest’s Lobster Crawl Passport offers festivalgoers a fun way to sample all the flavors of this year’s events. Take your time visiting some of the island’s best restaurants like Estel’s Dine by the Sea, Elvi’s Kitchen, Blue Water Grill, and Rain Restaurant – and secure a stamp for each. 

It’s going to be beachside fun all week long with participating eateries hosting all-day (or all-night) events. Lobster-themed dishes and delicious cocktails await! 

Haven’t secured a passport yet? Getting one is easy. Just pick up your free passport at the first participating business that you visit. Then, collect stamps as you go along. And, while you’re at it, be sure to grab some official San Pedro Lobsterfest merch.

When all is said and done (and sampled), look to the Hon. Louis Sylvestre Sports Complex and the Boca Del Rio strip on the 15th and 16th, respectively, for some classic lobster fest revelry.  On Saturday, it’s a Lobster Fest block party, complete with live music, loads of entertainment, and of course, lots of food. Then, on Sunday, an all-day Beach Party promises loads of fun in the sand and sun.  Ready to party like a “lobstar”? The 2023 San Pedro Lobster Fest awaits!
