Ambergris Caye was packed like never before as thousands flocked to the island for the Easter weekend holiday. Rumors were abound that there were people who could not find hotel rooms and camped out on the beach for the weekend (I could not get a picture of that). We know that the hotels were full, golf cart rentals were exhausted and the airlines and water taxis were busy turning around their vessels to maximize their routes per day.
And there were plenty of activities for everybody, including two great concerts (Island Invasion with Darrio from Jamaica and AIDS Commission Imitators Concert), Saga Easter Egg Hunt, Oceana/Mama Vilma’s House Beach Party, Moose’s Kite Contest and all the other activities that make La Isla Bonita so special – swimming, golf cart exploring, tanning, clubbing, beach combing, snorkeling, diving, parasailing, boating…
Besides traffic being a little ‘Hellish”, no major incidents occurred during the Easter Weekend and it is safe to say that everybody had a fantastic time in San Pedro.
