Carnaval 2014 in San Pedro, Belize is coming to an end. I was there for the first day (Sunday) of painting and comparsas but missed Monday and Tuesday to fly with Tropic Air on the inaugural flight from Belize to Merida, Mexico.
Carnaval is great fun. So unique to the island and messily beautiful…
Kids being kids…
And adults getting their party on.
People drink. Alot. And paint gets everywhere…whether purposely or accidentally. Eggs are hurled. Belize Tourism Board posted this picture yesterday to celebrate San Pedro’s Carnaval.
Beautiful, yes. But that’s a public bench in the Central Park!
Has the vandalism outweighed the fun?
I’ll just end it with a picture and quote from Niki…a tourist visiting San Pedro for Carnival.
She says: “The best day EVER” was the quote of the day!!! Thank you to the locals for showing us such great hospitality!!!
See? Get in there and love it for what it is.
Kill it? NEVER. We should work on enforcing the rules and then promoting it to the world.
Get 10% off the regular rate for any Tropic Air flight except those that fly internationally (to and/or from Guatemala, Mexico and Honduras). When choosing your flight times, please allow 45 minutes upon landing to clear customs and to check in and pay at Tropic Air. For your return flight time, you are asked to be at the International Airport 2 hours ahead of your scheduled flight.
See you soon... you can thank me when you get here!
