The Costa Maya festival is the biggest event in San Pedro all year. People from all over Belize and Central America visit to see the beauty pageant, the international talent and just party for the weekend. This year, it takes place Aug 3 to Aug 5th. The Costa Maya pageant girls arrived on the island yesterday and had dinner at Fido’s Courtyard. I was there…and so were about 8 other real photographers.
Here is my favorite to win…and I am not being biased. Miss Belize. She was gracious enough to stand up and pose for me. I am 5 foot 10 and was dwarfed by Miss Belize in her heels. I think she is super pretty.
Here are the ladies of Central America lined up.
And another line-up of the ladies of the Costa Maya…WAIT ONE SECOND…who is the tan skinned one with the brown shirt? That’s Jamie, Miss Morristown (NJ)! Apparently she has been disqualified from Costa Maya for forgetting her sash. Better luck in 2012, Miss Morristown! I think you could’ve been a contender.
I tried to take a picture of the San Pedro paparazzi but when the queens sensed a camera near, they all turned around and smiled. (Paparazzi is behind them).
The food they were eating looks delish…but it seemed to be left on the table. Maybe the ladies have a bathing suit competition tomorrow. I’m guessing pageant contestants don’t eat much.
On the way home we stopped at Roadkill Bar. There is a big photo contest in town right now with http://www.ambergristoday.com/ to find the best example of planking. (Check them out on facebook for the pictures…some of them are pretty funny).
If you don’t know what it is…just google it. Planking is all over the place.
