We are just four weeks away from one of the most anticipated festivals on the island – The International Costa Maya Festival, which will be kicking off on July 26th and ends on 28th, 2019.
This year marks the 29th year for the International Costa Maya Festival. In celebration of its silver anniversary, the Costa Maya Festival committee has a lot of surprises up their sleeves with one of the most exciting being the introduction of its new logo. Bold, bright and full of life, it is a true representation of the festival at hand.
Held annually, the festival promotes the culture of the Munda Maya with their traditional dances, music, and food while promoting tourism in San Pedro. It is not only one of the busiest weeks on the island but one of the most vibrant and liveliest times. San Pedro comes alive, as locals and tourist flock to the island by boat and by plane to participate in the different festivities and special offers, proposed by restaurants, bars, nightclubs and hotels around the island.
Apart from the local community getting into the swing of things and making the most of the influx of visitors, some of the main highlights of the Costa Maya Festival are also the cultural events and performances, which makes it a magnificent multicultural spectacle.
As traditions stand, the Costa Maya Pageant is one of the main highlights. La Isla Bonita is flooded with beautiful women from around Central America. Moreover, they arrive to compete for the honorary title of “ Miss Costa Maya” on the 26th of July. Finally, end off the festival with a comedy night on Sunday the 28th.
