The beaches are packed, the hotels are full here, and there are thousands of people in Mahahual enjoying Easter weekend. The stores are out of toilet paper, snacks, cokes, beer, and all the other party essentials.
There are also a lot of Belizeans in town again this year for Easter. Every year I have noticed more and more Belizeans crossing the border and coming to Mahahual’s beaches. There are also a lot of Mexicans from Mexico City, and other large cities in Mexico, here for Semana Santa.
There is also a cruise ship in town today, which will just add to the crowds on the beaches today. We have never had a cruise ship on Easter Sunday since I have been here. Me, today I am stocked up and have everything I need, I am not even going to go close to the beaches today. Like most locals, I am avoiding all the tourists and chaos today. I am going to spend my Easter at home in the air conditioning watching old movies and catching up on some of my TV shows.
So Happy Easter to everyone out there, and I hope you have a nice holiday, I will be having a holiday from tourists today, and will watch some NCAA March Madness later.
