Caye Caulker, Belize

Belize Lobster Festival
June 25 – 30, 2020

Caye Caulker, Belize Lobster Festival

Conde Nast Traveler, a luxury and lifestyle travel magazine, selected Belize as a top destination to visit in 2019! Caye Caulker island, where warm crystal blue ocean waves meet delicious tropical Caribbean cuisine, will host its annual Lobster Festival once again in June. This long-standing cultural tradition and event marks the opening of lobster season in Belize and is where the festival originated 26 years ago. People from around the world make their way to the beautiful Caribbean island for mouthwatering lobster dishes of every kind, live music and dancing, art and more! Belize is home to the second largest coral reef system in the world, making it a true paradise for diving, snorkeling and eco-exploration. There are majestic ancient Mayan Ruins to explore. Also, several breathtaking private islands, or Cayes, to visit and spend a lazy afternoon swaying in a hammock in tune with the island breeze. You certainly won’t want to leave this beautiful slice of paradise.

Itinerary Summary

Below is a brief summary of our activities and only details part of all that you will experience.  We can’t give away all the goodies just yet.  You will receive a detailed itinerary complete with locations, addresses, restaurant names, etc. approximately 6 weeks prior to the start of our adventure in Caye Caulker.

  • Thursday, June 25, 2020 – Arrive and check in and settle into your room after 12:00 PM.  Meet your fellow travelers at our welcome dinner at Belizean Flavas, one of the oldest and most authentic restaurants in Belize. Dinner included.

    Friday, June 26, 2020 – After breakfast (you must try a fryjack), we ferry over to San Pedro on a neighboring island for site-seeing tours and a foodie crawl. The Belize Chocolate Factory is not to be missed! Later, we return to Caye Caulker to participate in Lobster Fest activities. Breakfast, round-trip transportation to San Pedro and lunch included.

    Saturday, June 27, 2020 – By now you’re starting to discover just how many different ways lobster can be prepared. After breakfast (We know where to get the best lobster omelette and hashbrowns), you’ll have some free time to roam around and enjoy the island. In the evening prepare to paaaaaarty at the Lobster Fest block party.  Breakfast included.

    Sunday, June 28, 2020 – Let’s sleep late and make it a lazy day!  Most people on the island are trying to recover from last night’s block party so breakfast (and everything else) will be on island time. Sometime this afternoon we will mosey over to Koko King or play in The Split or roam the island or just grab a hammock in the shade to swing in the breeze.  Later in the evening chop it up at our Rum Punch Panty Rippa (it’s a drink) Dinner Party with a surprise! Breakfast and dinner included.

    Monday, June 29, 2020 – Sailing anyone? Let’s embark on a romantic sunset catamaran cruise. However, once we’re back on land, make sure you get to bed early. The ferry back to the mainland leaves about 7 AM. 

    Tuesday, June 30, 2020 – Departures. Our weekend has come to an end. Hope to see you soon at another K2/Global Gastronome adventure! Breakfast include
