Placencia Lobsterfest Update

Remaxvipbelize - Placencia Lobsterfest

Lobsterfest is in full swing every weekend around this time every year. Both San Pedro and Placencia (and Caye Caulker has one too) go NUTS for the opening of Lobster season, and it is really, really endearing – everyone gets into it, bartenders wear lobster hats, the steel drum music, the crowds – just super fun, and if you’ve never experienced it – you really want to be here for it next year. In fact you can make both festivals by splitting your time.

This year, In Placencia, there was a bit of controversy as the location changed (and the village is not a big fan of change :)) and because there are some serious limitations on land to use for a festival, the land that was finally chosen was by the pier. In order to get the mass amount of tents etc there – a tree had to be cut down. It happened to be a tree on the beach that people used a lot for shade, and there were a lot of unhappy folks because Placencia tends to be conservative about preserving nature. However — the happy ending is, Village Council went over the top this year with setting up – it truly looks amazing. There will be two trees planted in its place, and with the perfect weather/water/set up – everything has calmed back down, and now Lobsterfest has a new home every year. Here are some of my favorite pics from this year so far!
