A third and fourth contestant vying for the title of Miss Costa Maya International 2016 have been revealed, and they are Miss El Salvador: Marlin Ramirez and Miss Honduras Corina Alejandra Flores Canales.
Miss El Salvador
Marlin Ramirez is 25 years old and in her third year of undergraduate sociology studies at the National University of Santa Ana. The Santa Ana, San Antonio Pajonal native is particularly into history, as her hometown has Maya ancestry. In fact, many ceramic and clay utensils were found in the area, and as such, she loves to learn about the history and culture of the countries she visits while sharing her own. The avid traveler has visited the United States, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Honduras, Turkey, Iraq, Japan, and Mexico.
Ramirez speaks both Spanish and English, and she looks forward to further growth beyond her studies, hoping to own her own business someday. She has had the opportunity to represent the country in Miss Teen Expoworld, Miss Piel Dorada, Miss Teen Universo, and Miss Internacional in Japan.
Her favorite sport is football, and she is goalkeeper in her local team. Ramirez’ favorite singer is Marc Anthony, author: Paulo Coelho, actress: Jennifer Lopez, and of course, her favorite food is the famous Salvadoran Pupusas!!
An international business administrator, Corina Alejandra Flores Canales is no stranger to pageantry. She has represented Honduras at the Miss Ambar Mundial 2015 pageant in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, and she won the title of Chica Verano 2015 in her home country.
