The 2015 International Costa Maya Festival® is set to go!: Presenting Miss Costa Rica!

The San Pedro Sun is delighted to announce that the preparations for this year’s International Costa Maya Festival® are well underway. Naturally, readers will be delighted to know that the Reina de la Costa Maya delegates from all eight countries have already confirmed their attendance. In this issue, we present to you the beautiful Miss Costa Rica, Corlina On Porras.

Corlina is 21 years of age, and stands at 5’9” tall. She enjoys cooking, music, learning new languages and pet grooming! She is a student at the Universidad Nacional de Costa Rica, studying Business Administration. Corlina is the first of the eight beauties who will be participating in the 2015 Reina de La Costa Maya® pageant. She will be joined onstage by Miss Belize, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua and Panama in the quest to take the coveted crown currently being held by Miss Mexico Elisa Gomez.

The pageant is scheduled to take place on Thursday August 6th, the first night of the festival. But what about the remaining two nights? Well, fear not, the committee has been working feverishly behind the scenes to ensure they bring you music, entertainment and culture once again!

After the pageant kicks off the festival with beauty and color, the Friday night festivities will include a lot of culture and some amazing musical performances. Mexican Dance Troupe Alma Caribeña will grace us with their presence, and joining them will be the Belize Dance Company, an international DJ (to be announced at a later date) and of course, the mighty GILHARRY 7 Band!!

Saturday’s entertainment is being kept under wraps for now, but be assured that there will be entertainment galore courtesy of Grupo Crash from El Salvador, an international DJ and international band for the die-hard Costa Maya fans!

Of course, events leading up to the grand weekend of August 6th – 8th include the highly anticipated Noche Sanpedrana, hosted at Ramon’s Village Resort, as well as tons of activities with the beauties once they arrive on La Isla Bonita on July 29th. As is customary, Fido’s Courtyard will be hosting the beauties on the first night of their arrival, so the public is invited to come on down and mingle with the lovely girls before they begin their rounds of preparations for the pageant.

Grand Sponsor for the event are the Belize Tourism Board (BTB) and Ramon’s Village Resort. Also providing valuable support to the festival are Victoria House, Sunbreeze Hotel, Blue Tang Inn, Moncho’s Golf Cart Rentals.
