On Sunday, October 1st, the 2017-2018 fishing season of the Queen Conch (Strombus Gigas) officially opened. The season had been closed for the past three months since June. Conch represents a significant source of revenue for traditional fishermen on Ambergris Caye and across the country, which generates millions of dollars to the Belizean economy. The season usually runs from the 1st October until June 30th of the following year, however the season can close earlier if the conch quota is met before the end date.
The International Costa Maya Festival is a celebration of the Mundo Maya countries throughout Central America. Dancers, cultural performers, and musical entertainers from these countries are hosted in San Pedro Town for three days of celebrations.
Our favorite time of year is just around the corner, LOBSTER SEASON! Lobster season in Belize opens on June 15th every year and closes on February 15th. There is so much lobster available during the summers here that prices for this tasty treat are at their absolute lowest.
