To enjoy the natural beauty of Ecuador the candidates to Miss Continente Americano spent the morning at the hacienda of the Escobar family, in Chongón province.
The Queens of America were enjoyed with typical Ecuadorian dishes such as fish with onions, shrimp ceviche and roast pork. They were later serenaded by well-known singer Nayyib Salazar Scaff.
The 21 Candidates enjoyed the attractions of the Hacienda and local media used the opportunity to take photographs of the beauty queens in the surrounding lake environment.
The official contestants of Miss Universe, Miss World, Miss International, Miss Earth winners or finalists in their respective nations vie for the Crown to select the most beautiful in America, with the city of Guayaquil, Ecuador as the venue.
This event was broadcast live 29 September by international media networks: Antenna Latina Dominican Republic; Telecorporación Salvadoreña El Salvador; Teleprogreso Honduras; Corporacion Medcom Panama; Bolivia Unitel; Channel 5 Great Belize Television; in time delay Channel 22 in Miami and Canal Del Orgullo Nicaraguense.

Chantae did a good showing at the Continente Americano Pageant but did not win. The coveted crown as the most beautiful woman on the American Continent went to Brazil’s Camila Serakides. Felicidades República Federativa do Brasil! Adelante Belice!
