By Angel Nuñez It is always fun to reminisce the past about the fun things we USED TO do in San Pedro. Many of the things we used to do were so different from how or what we do today.  One of the things that always amazes me is the very simplistic way of doing things.

By Angel Nuñez Twenty five years something really exciting happened in San Pedro.  It was the Mosquito Coast.  Today people talk about Mosquito Coast though knowing very little about it.  Well, see if you can discover exactly what it is.

By Angel Nuñez There are so many things that USED TO  be different in the village of San Pedro back in the 1950’s and 60’s and when we remember them we even become nostalgic. Oh how do we wish we could go back in time to re-live those wonderful experiences! This is how I recall the following.

By Angel NuñezAlmost thirty years ago, (Were you born already?) the very young town of San Pedro was honored and graced with the visit of Miss World 1986.  She was a lovely Caribbean woman, Giselle Laronde.

By Angel NuñezOkay we have seen the charcoal irons, the gasoline and kerosene irons, the comal or hot plate, the egg beater, and the waffle iron. How about a few more for this week as we walk about an old kitchen or house in the tiny village of San Pedro, the home to coconut farmers and fishermen.

By Angel Nuñez The biggest name in radio today in Belize is Love F M. (98.1 FM) but did you know that back in the 1950's there was a whole lot of international radio in San Pedro? And what's more, a lot of villagers had their private antennas in their own yards. First let me take you through the International radio stations. There was first and foremost Radio Harlengin Texas. Yes all the way from Texas we got to enjoy musical programs in the days when Country and Western was very popular.
