I am sure that as Orange Walkenos we have all heard or even visited Botes, a small remote Mexican village located across from the community of Santa Cruz. Over the past years the area has been branded as one of Orange Walk’s hot spots for contraband goods. Despite the fact that the Customs Department is always on patrol, the area is visited by a number of northenos on a daily basis.

And tomorrow it is expected that the amount of visitors to Botes will increase monumentally because the 26th annual Motor Boating Race Rio-Hondo/Bacalar will be held this weekend. The race, organized by the Yacht Club of Chetumal-Bacalar will start at midday tomorrow in Bacalar Mexico. The boats will depart from the Club De Vela Bacalar and will head to the village of Botes where the participants will be making a short stop before traveling back to the finish line at Lake Bacalar.

“La carrera motonáutica es organizada en México para dar oportunidad a los mejores pilotos en este tipo de lanchas de participar en estas carrera de tal manera de que témenos una muy buena oportunidad de disfrutar de este tipo de deporte que es un poco común en esta parte de Chetumal. Tradicionalmente se realiza en la laguna de bacalar hasta al Rio Hondo y es una actividad para todo el público así es que se le invita a todo el público Beliceño para que pueda acudir a este evento es una competición que es emocionante para toda la familia.”

Over the years the event has attracted more and more Belizeans and it is expected that this year will be no exception.

Marcelino Miranda – PR Officer Mexican Embassy

“Cada vez mas Beliceño acude al evento sobre todo porque puede ser visto a distintos punto a lo largo del Rio Hondo y ano con ano ha ido incrementándose la asistencia del Beliceño no solo a lo largo del Rio Hondo pero también en la misma laguna de Bacalar y incluso para este evento ay una buena coordinación entre las autoridades de México y Belice que garantiza la seguridad a lo largo del Rio Hondo y sobre todo para que integre cada vez más al publico Beliceño.”

The race is expected to reach Botes at around 2:30 in the afternoon.
