Famous songwriter and singer Jimmy Buffett is no stranger to San Pedro, Belize. He has been visiting the island for over 34 years and was even a part of the administrative board of San Pedro High School in its early years. He rated the then Purple Parrot Bar at Ramon’s Village as one of the top 10 drinking spots in USA Today’s Travel Section and even named the signature Purple Parrot Drink.
This picture is not of Jimmy Buffett fishing in San Pedro, Ambergris Caye, but of him fishing with a Sanpedrano. Pictured here is Mr. Buffett (right) with local Sanpedrano pilot Gerald Leslie off the coast of Nantucket, Massachusets, USA. Gerald Leslie is a private pilot for Mr. Buffett and on one of their days off they went fishing and caught this huge tuna. They wanted to boast their big catch with San Pedro and sent the picture to Ambergris Today.
