Costa Maya Festival presents: Miss Belize and Miss Guatemala

Costa Maya 2010 is right around the corner, and over the past few weeks we have been presenting to you a bevy of beauties who will represent eight countries in the International Reina de la Costa Maya Pageant. This week, we have the honor of presenting two lovely ladies representing Guatemala and Belize.

Guatemala,  25-year-old Gabriela Asturias is a Social Communicator who stands at 5' 5", measures 34-24-35, has dark brown-eyes and hair. Gabriela enjoys dancing and reading, and is looking forward to representing her beautiful country at this year's Reina de la Costa Maya Pageant.

Belize, 23-year-old Liliana Mia Nuñez is a Gym Administrator who enjoys exercising and is looking forward to acquiring a degree in personal training. She stands at 5'4", has brown hair and eyes, and measures 33-26-36.

Both beauties will be joined on the Costa Maya stage in San Pedro by delegates from Costa Rica, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Mexico and Panama. At the end of the night, only one will be crowned by outgoing Reina de la Costa Maya Maritza Rivas, of Nicaragua. Who will be our new beauty representative? You just have to be there for the grand moment when hostess Sandra Hoyos announces the winner!

In other entertainment news, the Costa Maya committee has confirmed the appearance of Belize's own Berne Velasquez. Berne is a Belizean musician, model and entertainer who will be bringing his hype and melodies to the festival. Berne's music combines rap and reggae; a collaboration that has captured the attention of Hip-Hop as well as pop music aficionados worldwide. Musically influenced by pop icons Bob Marley, Tupac, and Stevie Wonder, Berne has had the fortune of performing on stage with Reggae and Dancehall greats, including Beenie Man, Sean Paul, and Shaggy.

Clowns Ozzy and Chispin will be on hand to keep the kiddies entertained at the festival grounds during the festival, and will be onstage on Sunday's family day. The committee is working hard to confirm the main Comedy Act for Sunday night, and while details are being finalized, what we can say to the public is that they will be in stitches from start to finish. A fabulous act is being lined up, with side-splitting laughter for the audience who will be in attendance. Look for details in next week's issue of The San Pedro Sun!!
