El Carnaval de San Pedro was San Pedro’s most important folklore celebration, one of the biggest carnivals in the Belize. The carnival has traditions that date back to the 19th century. ... moreSome of the best-known carnival traditions, including parades and masquerade balls, were first recorded in medieval Italy, where the carnival of Venice was the most famous. From Italy, the custom spread to Spain, Portugal, and France and, through colonization, to the Caribbean, Latin America and parts of North America. The carnival of Cádiz, Spain, even now one of the best known, was particularly influential in shaping the traditions that would later predominate in San Pedro. When the Spanish conquered Mexico and established the cities of Merida, Vallodolid and Bacalar, they brought carnival traditions with them. As the Caste War (Guerra de las Castas) spread throughout the Yucatán, those traditions travelled south with the Maya, Mestizo and Caucasian refugees who settled on Ambergris Caye and elsewhere in Belize.

The Carnaval customs of San Pedro resemble and appear derived from those of Cádiz. Even now, the people of Cádiz are known for their humour. While celebrations elsewhere featured the glamorous or scandalous, those in Cádiz were traditionally infused with playfulness, off-beat but imaginative costumes, clever word plays, and even sharp social and political criticism disguised as comedy. Face painting substituted for masks, and the city became famous for its comedic street singing groups, comparsas.

Marco Gonzalez Spring Equinox Come out and experience the Mayan culture like never before! The Marco Gonzalez Archaeological Reserve was occupied from 100BC to approximately late 1400AC. ... moreWhat was thought to be a free standing island those thousands of years ago is now surrounded by mangrove marsh and has lost some of its mass due to sea rise of over 2.5 feet. Marco is one of over 20 Maya sites on Ambergris Caye, the home to the Coastal Maya Traders. Marco has been found to be the biggest of these sites. It sits in a forested environment with a trove of artifacts everywhere you look. Of course during the 500 years of abandonment, these items are in fragments, but a brief review at the office before your tour will help to identify items such as shells for jewelry, chert (stone) pieces still sharp for cutting, pottery shards (pieces) of jars and plates and much more. A self-guided tour is done by following the blue ribbons along the 7.5 acres of the reserve. Look, take pictures, hold them – LEAVE all behind. There are NO temples on Ambergris Caye or Marco; however, archaeologists have identified 50 mounds of former home sites – many are identified with our informational signs. Along the trails you may encounter some of the critters and birds which inhabit the site. The hermit crabs are particularly fun. And you may get a threatening stare from the many black stripped iguana. They’re scurry off soon enough.
2019 Marco Gonzalez Spring Equinox The Spring Equinox Event will be held on Sunday, March 24, 2019, at 10:00 a.m., where guests can enjoy a day of celebration of the start of all things new. This is also the only fundraising event held by the Belizean Non-Profit Organization, which manages the site. Cost of admission is $20BZ/$10US.

Activities will include the return of K’iche Maya Elder Martin Choc, 89 years old, to officiate the Blessing. He is joined by his grandson Jose who is Grandfather’s interpreter because Mr. Choc only speaks his native language and Spanish! Anyone who is celebrating a birthday, wedding, anniversary or special occasion is invited to the inner circle as the ceremony takes place. 

The ceremony is followed by the Masaewal Maya dancers from Yo Creek in their native costumes. You will be able to enjoy a table of artifacts on display from the San Pedro House of Culture as well as stop by Belize Chocolate Co.’s table for a demonstration of how Cacao goes from pod to bean to product. Maya music will be in the background while you enjoy food, beer and soft drinks or shop Maya items brought from the Toledo village of San Marcos. On hand will be representatives from Belize Institute of Archaeology to give tours of the site and answer your question of Maya occupation of the island.
Why should you attend the 2019 Marco Gonzalex Spring Equinox? This is a great opportunity to learn about the great Maya Civilization that once occupied the island of Ambergris Caye. There will be booths selling food and drinks and also booths from the San Pedro House of Culture and Belize Chocolate Co. to demonstrate the chocolate-making process. If you are planning on attending, please note the following: The site is 5 ½ miles from downtown San Pedro. The road may be bumpy due to late rains; allow 45 minutes to drive to the southern end of the island. After paying your entrance fee, the site is located ¼ mile – a 10/15 minute walk – inland via a boardwalk. After reaching the “high ground” of the site there is another 6 minute walk to the Main Plaza for the venue. The site is in the mangrove marsh; we control the mosquitoes as much as possible, but bring bug repellent and dress appropriately. Usually Spring is very comfortable on site. Admission, food and beverages require money; bring cash. No electricity for credit cards! Also note, very young children may get too curious with our critters! Under 5 years old not recommended.

Come enjoy a Maya immersion without leaving Ambergris Caye!
