Costa Maya Festival Set for August 7 to 10, 2008

The first official meeting of the Costa Maya Festival Committee took place last week which confirmed and solidified that the 16th Annual Festival is on for the first week of August 2008.

From August 7 to the 10, the Costa Maya Festival stage lights up as international artists from all over the Americas merge to put on a multicultural spectacle in Ambergris Caye for a celebratory week of dance, music, pageants, food and drink.

Celebrating their ancestral Mayan culture the Costa Maya Festival is a week-long celebration. This year the Reina de la Costa Maya Pageant seeks the participation of Panama to complete the participation of all the Central American countries.

Local and international visitors enjoy a world class event in beautiful San Pedro. There are traditional and modern dance groups, star-studded musical bands accompanied by renown singers.

A lot of the preparation has commenced including the booking of not one but possibly two international entertainers. The committee wants to cater to both young and old and is looking to book entertainers that will appeal to both age groups. So expect an even more spectacular festival than previous years.

As always, the festival is not possible without the kind donations of sponsors. So please dig deep into your pockets and give as much as you can to the annual festival that gives back tremendously to our island. More updates to come soon! (
