So where exactly in Belize is Lobster Fest exactly held?
As mentioned previously, it is held in 3 unique locations in the country of Belize; namely, San Pedro, Placencia and Caye Caulker.
In 1998, Placencia started hosting their own Lobster Fest as a way to celebrate their culture and heritage while also making it a community initiative to raise funds for their Village Council. Lobster Fest plays a significant role in generating tourism and supporting local businesses. The event lasts about three days with entertainment ranging from live performances, food and games. The prospective dates set for the Placencia Lobster Fest are June 23rd-June 25th, 2018. Due to its convenient location on the peninsula, you should also do some sightseeing to nearby locations in the area. Modes of transportation include vehicles, buses, airplanes and boats. Hence, transportation will be easy.
With 18 years in existence, Caye Caulker Lobster Fest has been known to commemorate the fishermen who have contributed to the islands successes and history. Caye Caulker Lobster Fest offers a more relaxing and #GoSlow setting. Activities such as greasy pole, Beach BBQ’s and parties and endless food stalls are available all three days of the event. Lobster Fest usually lasts 3 days; June 29th – July 1st, 2018. Of all three locations, Caye Caulker might also be the most affordable since it is closest to the mainland and easily accessible by boat or air.
In retrospect, if it’s feasible to go to all 3 festivals, then by all means! Take advantage of the low rates considering it is the most affordable time to travel to Belize. Feel free to pay our fishermen a visit to see their catch of the day and savor the flavor of Lobster with a side of our local cuisine. Also, be sure to enjoy yourself at the activities – live life the tropical way. We BELIZE you will at Lobster Fest 2018!
