What to Do at This Year’s Caye Caulker Lobster Fest

Ahoy, seafood lovers and festival-goers! The highly anticipated Caye Caulker Lobster Fest is back and better than ever. If you’re a fan of fresh lobster, vibrant festivities, and unforgettable island vibes, you won’t want to miss this incredible event on July 12, 13, and 14!

Here’s your ultimate guide on what to do during this year’s Lobster Fest in the beautiful paradise of Caye Caulker, and how you can make the most of it with a stay at El Ben Cabañas Resort.

Caye Caulker Lobster Fest

Flavor and Fun

The highlight of the festival is, of course, the lobster! From grilled lobster tails and lobster ceviche to lobster curry and lobster rolls, the island’s best chefs come out to display their culinary prowess. Be sure to try as many dishes as your stomach allows—each one is a celebration of the sea’s bounty.

Live Music and Entertainment

Groove to the beats of live reggae, soca, and punta music performed by local bands and artists. The island comes alive with dance and joy, providing the perfect backdrop for a weekend of fun. Join the dance-offs or simply sway along; the energy is infectious!

Water Activities

Although the life of the party is usually in the center of the village, you can still take advantage of the pristine waters surrounding Caye Caulker. Go snorkeling or diving to explore the stunning coral reefs, or participate in friendly beach volleyball matches organized by the festival committee. Local fishermen sign up for the lobster-catching competition and vie for awards like the top lobster producer (most pounds of lobster caught) and longest lobster. 

Miss Lobster Fest Pageant

Don’t miss the Miss Lobster Fest Pageant where contestants showcase not just their beauty but their wit and charm, vying for the title of Miss Lobster Fest. It’s an exciting and entertaining highlight of the festival you won’t want to miss.
