This month Hotel, the pioneer hotel in tourism in San Pedro celebrated its Golden Anniversary. Fifty years ago this wonderful person, this amazing San Pedrana, passionate woman, and awesome entrepreneur, Celi Nuñez McCorkle, opened up the doors for the commencement of tourism in San Pedro and Belize. The seeds she sowed are still reaping benefits in the millions for thousands of people in this community. Talk about a prominent and iconic personality- it’s Celi McCorkle.
This week in Facebook, Celi’s daughter, Lisa McCorkle posted memoirs of the 25th Anniversary of Holiday Hotel when it was celebrated in grand style. Here are those memoirs and comments of many who lived the experience and a historic photo of Celi, the tourism pioneer, and George Price, the Father of the Belizean nation.
