Beauty pageants are held throughout the country; here in San Pedro we get our fair share of pageantry from Miss Chiquitita to Miss Costa Maya International. Beautiful Sanpedranas have also proudly represented Belize in international pageants, Miss World Belize – Martha Badillo (1989) and Miss World Belize – Letty Lara (2009), Tatiana Rivero – Miss Piel Dorada (2010) and Liliana Nuñez – Reina International del Tropico (2008) – Miss America Latina (2009) – Miss Costa Maya International (2010), Anna Haylock - Miss Teenager Universe (2011).
This year Belize is being represented at international beauty pageants around the world at this moment. Our lovely representatives are Ms. Kadejah Tunn – Miss World Belize, Ms. Annlyn Apolonio – Queen of the Jewel and Ms. Kimberly Robateau – Miss Earth Belize. These lovely ladies have the difficult task (but fun experience) of being among hundreds of contestants and make Belize shine.
