After much speculation and anticipation, we believe that many will be pleased to know that the International Costa Maya Festival in San Pedro, Ambergris Caye, will go forward for this year. Word just arrived to Ambergris Today from the organizing committee that the festival has been set for August 1 and run until August 4, 2013.
The announcement came a bit late this year as for the speculations that there might not have been any festival this year. Construction of the Sunset Boardwalk at the old football field (venue of the festival) seemed to be getting in the way, but it does not seem so. The committee will get back to work in organizing another spectacular festival that brings so much entertainment and revenue for the island and Belize.
New Costa Maya Queen to be Crowned
First Runner Up to the title of Miss Costa Maya 2012, Miss Panama, Karen Jordan (pictured above), will be crowned the new Miss Costa Maya this week in San Pedro as she is on the island of Ambergris Caye partaking in Fashion Week activities.
Miss Costa Maya 2012 Natalia Villanueva (Miss Mexico) relinquished her title when she made the decision to get married late last year. The new Miss Costa Maya will be invited back on the island in August to crown our next beauty queen ambassador. Ambergris Today will keep everyone posted with updates leading to the biggest festival in the country.
