The San Pedro International Costa Maya Festival is back for its 2017 edition after being absent last year due to its cancellation after Hurricane Earl struck Belize in August. And just when everybody was starting, the festival committee steps up to announce the participation of Soca Queen Alison Hinds and Sonora Dinamita as featured entertainers.
Costa Maya Festival 2017 has been set to take place from August 3 to August 6 with four days of high-powered entertainment. The Costa Maya Pageant will once again kick off the festival on Thursday, August 3, with the participation of eight beautiful and exotic delegates from the Mundo Maya countries and around the region.

Soca Queen Alison Hinds
Friday, August 4, will ignite with the stellar and high energy performance of Alison Hinds, British-born female soca artist based in Barbados. She is one of the most popular soca singers in the world and has been given the nickname the “Queen of Soca”. Alison was the lead singer of Square One, has collaborated with Kevin Lyttle, Machel Montano, Shaggy and Jah Cure, and made a huge hit with her own singles ‘Roll It Gal’ and ‘Faluma’.
Saturday, August 5, will be infused with a Latin flavor as grupo Sonora Dinamita, from Colombia, South America. As one of the first cumbia groups to reach international success, it is credited with helping to popularize the genre throughout Latin America, and the world.
