This is a picture of the beach of San Pedro in the late 1960’s when tourists were beginning to discover the village of San Pedro on Ambergris Caye. It was not yet known as Isla Bonita but the very few hotels advertised as “Welcome To Paradise…No Shirt, No Shoes, Problem”. This was the mood set by The Ambergris Lodge of George Stefanco upfront, followed by Lily’s Coral Beach Hotel, Conch Shell and Paradise Hotel in the background. At this time the cemetery was just on the outskirts of the village just before Paradise Hotel. These were among the first to set the pace for what was to become La Isla Bonita, The Number One Island in the World!
