Our island loves pageantry and beauty queens; we are always the host to beautiful queens who come to visit and enjoy the sea, sun and most importantly the hospitable people of San Pedro. On Thursday, November 22, 2012, Ambergris Today was honored with the presence of a lovely 9-year-old beauty queen, Luismarth Bandres, Mini Miss Mesoamerica International.
This beautiful little girl, not only graced us with her presence, but also delighted us with two beautiful song selections as she sang to us in English and Portuguese. Luismarth Bandres is from Aragua, Venezuela and holds five National titles and 17 International titles, including Mini Miss Mesoamerica International 2012 and Mini Miss Turismo Mesoamerica Mayan 2012.
