Ambergris Caye Lobsterfest: an Unforgettable Culinary Voyage In Belize


From the dazzling blue waters to the sun-drenched sands, Ambergris Caye in Belize is the epitome of a tropical paradise. However, this mesmerizing island offers more than a typical sun, sea, and sand experience. Once a year, it becomes the hub of a gastronomic celebration, the long-awaited San Pedro Lobsterfest. This tantalizing fiesta transforms the quaint island into a dynamic venue for food enthusiasts worldwide from July 4th to July 15th.

This extended celebration kicks off Belize’s lobster season, with Ambergris Caye leading the festivities. Being the longest running of all lobster festivals in the country, it promises a diverse range of activities that reflect Belize’s vibrant culture, appealing to foodies and party-goers alike.

It’s not just the luscious Caribbean Spiny Lobsters that star in this feast. The island comes alive with live music, beach parties, culinary competitions, and the highly anticipated ‘Lobster Crawl’— a ten-day event that sees participating bars and restaurants offering unique lobster-themed dishes and drinks. It all culminates in a grand block party, with vendors lining the streets, showcasing the best lobster-based delights, and a fireworks display that lights up the tropical night sky.
