UnBelizeable All Inclusive Adventure Tours at Coco Plum Island Resort

Known as “Mother Nature’s Best Kept Secret,” Belize is an adventure seeker’s paradise. Did you know that Belize is geographically part of Central America and is bordered by the Caribbean Sea to the east, making Belize a country that recognized as both a Caribbean and Central America nation? Yes, that’s right – when you travel to Belize you get the best of both worlds! White sandy beach surrounded by turquoise water and the dense tropical rainforest filled with caves, waterfalls, and Mayan ruins all in one country! UnBelizeable, isn’t it?

Culturally and environmentally diverse, Belize offers a vast array of adventure tours whether that is on land or at sea. At Coco Plum Island Resort, we welcome nature lovers, adrenaline junkies, and history buffs alike, as our Belize adventure tours are the perfect addition to your vacation.

Belize Mayan Ruin Toursbelize-mayan-ruin-adventure-tours

Getting to Xunantunich is half the fun! Discover local villages and even the nation’s capital, Belmopan, as you get a feel for everyday life in Belize. Upon arrival, you will cross the Mopan River on a hand-cranked ferry. Entering this archaeological site is inspiring as you reflect on the history and achievements of the Mayan culture. Test your fears and see if you are brave enough to hike to the top of “El Castillo,” one of the tallest structures in Belize complete with views all the way to neighboring country, Guatemala.

Belize Cave Tubing & Zip-lining ToursBelize-Zipling-Adventure-Tours

Another major part of Belize’s Mayan history and culture are the scared cave systems scattered underground in the jungle. The Belize cave tubing tour includes a guided exploration of the caves, delivered while tubing down the flowing river. You will pass through impressive sanctuaries filled with stalactites and stalagmites. Turn off your headlamps to experience complete darkness, heightening the sounds of the cascading rapids. From top to bottom, this combination tour also includes zip-lining above the rainforest canopy. Get your adrenaline pumping as you traverse from treetop to treetop, 80 feet above the forest floor with various platforms amounting to as much as 500 feet of flying.*

*This tour can also be replaced with a tour of the Belize Zoo.

Belize Snorkeling ToursBelize-Snorkeling-Tours

From land to sea, our Belize snorkeling adventure tours are perfect for those yearning to discover the largest living barrier reef in the world.

We Did It Yet Again! Coco Plum Island Resort Is A TripAdvisor 2018 Hall of Fame Winner

Announced annually, TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence recognizes hospitality businesses that consistently deliver outstanding service across the world. Businesses that have received a Certificate of Excellence for five consecutive years earn the Hall of Fame honor. Coco Plum Island is excited to announce that because of positive reveiws posted by our wonderful guests for over 10 years, we have made the Hall of Fame twice. The management and staff of Coco Plum Island Resort are passionate about providing superior customer service. This award is our confirmation that our guests really do feel loved from the very start of their journey with us. tripadvisor-certificate-of-excellence-reviews

Today we’d like to share some of the love with you too! Here’s what Juliedavidson55 has to say in her review Felt like a movie star:

I told my husband that this must be what George Clooney feels like. Coco Plum was a beautiful, almost private, adult only island that exceeded our expectations! No detail was over looked. The staff was just wonderful and treated us like family (maybe even better).

Yes that’s right, from the moment you contact us, you become family, and of course “family takes care of family.” After encountering the wonderful Reservation team (all Belizean locals), you’ll want to start packing your luggage right then and there! Of course, since you booked this vacation six months in advance, you’ll have to settle for a countdown calendar sending you daily reminders of how soon you’ll arrive in paradise. Before you know it, the day is finally here. You arrive in Belize and feel that fresh Caribbean air as you step off the plane. Getting through the only international airport in Belize (airport code: BZE) is relatively simple as it’s a quick and organized process to catch your local flight to Dangriga Town, which the Reservation team has pre-arranged. In no time you’ll be flying along the shoreline of the Caribbean Sea on your short 20 minute flight via Maya Island Air. You’ll be greeted by warm smiles in Dangriga Town, then en route to your island retreat via boat. As you approach the island, you’ll see the coconut trees swaying in the wind, and what seem to be small dots slowly transitioning into people awaiting your arrival. As you get closer to this island paradise, you’ll notice that you’re surrounded by the most enchanting blend of blue-green crystal clear water. You’ve arrived and are immediately greeted by smiling faces, a cold towel, and a fresh tropical drink. arriving-to-your-belize-private-island

Leave all your worries behind, you’re officially on island time as Suzanne W. so eloquently describes the entire experience:

I’m going to review, but want to start with saying words will not do this place or its staff justice. Just book a trip – it will be the best thing you’ve done! Everything is taken care of and it starts with the smiling, singing gentleman that picks you up from the airport. Then a lovely short boat ride to the island when you are greeted with fabulous cold drinks. The island is beautiful! You feel like it is your own private island.

Whether you are celebrating a honeymoon, anniversary, family reunion or even visiting for a wedding or solo vacation, you won’t be disappointed. Knowing that your every need, both seen and unforeseen is taken care of – is what we do best. For example, one of our return guests missed their connecting flight to Belize and flew to Cancun instead. As you can imagine, these guests were in a bit of a panic and needed help. Our Reservation team kept in contact with them to ensure they arrived safely in Belize, found a place for them to spend the night, and booked their flights the following day to get to the island. Feeling a sense of relief after arriving, they praised our Reservation specialists for the love and dedication shown to them which is more than often lost by other businesses. Not too long after, these amazing guests were fishing off the docks of Coco Plum Island! All was well in the world again. belize-fishing-at-coco-plum-island-resort

This is just one of the many reasons Coco Plum Island Resort has been recognized by our guest on TripAdvisor for providing exemplary service. Don’t take our word for it! Here’s what Mikescheng has to say:

Alex is also an avid mind-reader and will bend over backwards to do anything for you.

We appreciate each guest who took the time to write their story on TripAdvisor for all to read. Our relationships with our wonderful guests and our top of the line staff make the Coco Plum Island experience unforgettable. This award is a reflection of the hard work, fun, and dedication that we put into what we do and it shows by the thousands of positive reviews. TripAdvisor acknowledges that our guests genuinely enjoy their stay with us and we are so very proud. We say thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Award Winning Belize All Inclusive Resort

Summing it all up in Paradise Found, Tastebuds writes:

My wife & I truly found paradise. It is without question, the most romantic, picturesque, friendliest, fun place we’ve ever visited. Don’t wait, just go…you’ll thank me for also discovering paradise!”

We’d also like to congratulate our sister resort, Belizean Dreams Resort, for receiving the same great honor. You can surely experience the perfect combination of jungle and marine tours with our Inland and Island package. Now, isn’t that the best of both worlds? Come find out!

Start your journey to Island living with a little reading – we have over a 1,000 TripAdvisor reviews written by travelers just like you. Then go ahead and follow our Facebook and Instagram pages. We are sure you’ll start to eagerly await updates from our little island paradise. Contact us today to book your Belize all inclusive package.

Escape To Your One Of A Kind Belize All Inclusive Resort Paradise!

“You are only a stranger till you arrive.”

Yes! Imagine arriving on this enchanting, private Belize all inclusive resort destination, which is splendidly situated on a 16 acre Caribbean island. Upon arriving, you will be welcomed by your new “family” with a delicious mosquito bite cocktail and a soothing wet cloth. Soon after, you’ll discover the dynamic, attentive and warm local staff dedicated to making your stay an unforgettable experience. Coco Plum Island easily offers you a true Belizean experience as it is one of the very few locally owned and managed resorts.

All in all, Coco Plum not only offers the best views, food, and adventures, but they offer you a home away from home, and a second family. We want to thank everyone at the Resort for everything to make our first trip to Belize the best trip of our lives. As they say, “if you don’t leave, you can’t come back” – well, we will see you all again next year!!! – TripAdvisor Review By: Taylor S.

So what exactly does Coco Plum Island Resort offer? Well…it’s unique and it’s unforgettable, it’s not just sipping on a pina colada with an infinity pool overlooking the breathtaking Caribbean Sea on a crowed beach….Nope! This sand-fringed nirvana is the perfect spot that provides you with a Caribbean home away from home, one that you’ll want to return to year after year. Forming new bonds and reconnecting with loved ones is one of the highlights of Coco Plum Island’s transformative experience as eloquently stated by fifteen time island visitors, Bonnie & Sam Ellerbee:

If you are a first time visitor to Coco Plum, you are the “new.” You will arrive at the island after a short boat ride, to be greeted by the staff with a smile and a welcome drink. Almost without exception; however, there will be other guests on the boat who have been there before. They are the “old.” They will be greeted by the staff with that same welcoming smile and drink but it will be accompanied by a huge bear hug and the words, “Welcome Back!” All too soon, you will find it is time to leave the island as your vacation is over. You will find there is no longer a “new” and an “old.” Everyone is now family. Hugs are exchanged and tears are shed as you say goodbye. You leave with wonderful memories and a sadness to leave but a firm resolution to return as soon as possible and become one of the “old” members of the Coco Plum Family.

Coco Plum Island welcomes destination weddings, engagements, honeymoons, anniversaries, birthdays, family reunions – you name it. Rest assured, it’s the ideal private island beach getaway geared to provide guests with a perfect mix of fun, adventure and a unique experience to be remembered for years to come. Whether that be an adults only beach vacation, an adventurous experience, a little time to enjoy delicious food and drink with your new island family and friends or a chance to unplug, unwind and reconnect, you can be as relaxed or as adventurous as you wish.

Coco Plum is a place for romance, for new friendships, for great food, and for indescribable natural beauty. The facilities and staff are simply top notch. In short, I cannot recommend Coco Plum highly enough. Truly the best of its kind. – TripAdvisor Review By: Sam C.

Yup, there’s an array of carefully curated Belize all inclusive packages to choose from which include accommodations, meals, snack, local alcoholic beverages and boat transfers to/from the mainland. Several packages even include both inland and island adventure tours. There is no time for worrying here, we have thought of just about everything to make your Belize vacation one to remember!

Accommodations belize-all-inclusive-oceanfront-accommodations

Unwind in spacious accommodations and take in panoramic views of the hypnotizing seascape overlooking the beauty of blue Caribbean waters. Set just steps away from the Caribbean Sea, each of the 18 standalone cabanas are situated in a staggered pattern along the beach to enhance privacy. Another captivating feature worth specific mention is the island’s only two story, three bedroom/three bathroom overwater villa with its own private entrance and sunbathing deck.

Each cabana has a big porch yards from the ocean, with a chair and hammock. They are plenty far enough apart for privacy and to give you that sense of being on your own private island. – TripAdvisor Resort By: BCCali

Meals belize-all-inclusive-resort-meals

Reservations are not required at your spectacular ocean view dining area, the legendary Coco Palms Restaurant. Here you will savor mouthwatering dishes from our very own Belizean chef extraordinaire, Mrs. Jude. Forget your typical all inclusive run-of-the-mill buffet and long lines – we’re talking flavorful cuisine and Caribbean island infusion meals including breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. Don’t be shy if you can’t get enough, just ask your server for another helping.

The food is almost entirely locally sourced and organic and that combined with the brilliant chef makes for meals you will remember. There were couples going fishing while we were there and every night they came around at dinner sharing their catch. I am a vegetarian and the chef happily accommodated me. Between breakfast, lunch, bar snacks and dinner, I was so well fed and satisfied. – TripAdvisor Review By: Sarah J.

Unlimited Local Beveragesbelize-all-inclusive-resorts-with-drinks

Enjoy unlimited local mixed drinks, alcohol and beers with incredibly attentive and charming service. Behind all those perfectly shaken drinks and imaginative concoctions are the extraordinary bartenders. They truly know that bartending is not limited to just the arty flash of techniques and extensive knowledge of recipes, but most importantly includes very personable and welcoming personalities. All guests connect with these guys. Don’t be shocked when Swervin’ Ervin and Ben Franklin become your new best friends!

Ervin, bartender extraordinaire, offered to make sangria. He mixed up his special recipe (which he shared with us!), chopped lots of fruit to add and let it sit in the refrigerator overnight. It was absolutely the best sangria we have ever had!! Since he was leaving for his week off the island the next day, Ervin told us to open the remaining bottles and he would make another big batch of sangria before he left. Of course, we took him up on that offer! Again, way above and beyond! – TripAdvisor Review By: 2VABeachTravelers

Adventure Toursbelize-all-inclusive-adventure-tours

Struggling to plan the perfect Belize vacation itinerary? There’s no need to when you select one of our Belize all-inclusive packages which include several adventure tours to ensure that you experience the very best of Belize. Here’s a typical week on the island: Snorkel along the 170-mile long barrier reef on Monday, zip-line and cave tube on Tuesday, unwind with a massage on Wednesday, test your luck by fishing on Thursday, and explore the ancient Mayan Ruin of Xunantunich on Friday. Not interested in any of the tours? We’ve got that covered too with the all-inclusive Just Chillin’ Package which allows you to spend more time relaxing.

We got an all inclusive, 3 snorkels and 2 inland tours. Again, all private. Everybody works for Coco Plum and the quality of service continues even after you leave the island. – TripAdvisor Review By: Caico E.

Island Activities belize-island-activities

Grab a beach towel and lay out on one of the docks or take your sunglasses, a book and a little cooler filled with drinks to one of our secluded beach beds where you can sit back and take in the wonders of each sunny corner of Coco Plum Island. The complimentary use of kayaks, paddle boards and even a small hobie cat will have you steering your way out onto the Caribbean Sea to take in the magnificent views…views that will highlight your memories of island living and make you want to come back year after year!

We loved the quiet and calm atmosphere and the flexibility to join in the tours or just relax on the beach or in our room. We definitely recommend it for those wanting a low-key, secluded, romantic get-away and look forward to spending some time there again, during lobster season next time! – TripAdvisor Review By: Shannon L.

Additional Amenities belize-spa

From the serene and cozy Serenity Spa nestled in the mangroves on the quiet and most secluded end of the island, you can enjoy a therapeutic massage, facial, or a variety of other spa treatments. Imagine a peaceful room with rays of the Caribbean sun gently caressing your body through clear glass windows offering stunning views of tropical waters. Watch the gliding frigate birds soar over the waters while you and your partner receive a relaxed and peaceful massage.

Yes, the Serenity Spa is just one of the additional experiences you can add to your stay to make it that much more magical. And don’t forget to try out the new outdoor yoga deck overlooking the Maya Mountains. What better way to start your day than in a picturesque covered deck over the Caribbean Sea taking in a breath of cool fresh air?

I’d also highly recommend getting a massage while you’re there! The spa is a tucked away oasis with floor to ceiling windows jutting out over the water. The island is perfect for people who want to relax with a book (we did plenty of that!) or those who enjoy some adventure. It was the perfect blend. – TripAdvisor Review By: Alexandra W.

Getting Here

So, by now you’re thinking – this sounds perfect. What’s the catch? How do I get there? Well, you are in luck! Traveling to Belize is easier than ever with several nonstop flights from the United States and Canada. Did you know that we take care of everything once you have arrived in Belize City (airport code: BZE), home of the only international airport in Belize? Simply book your international airfare to Belize then send your flight details to the Reservation Team and your transfer to the island will be flawlessly arranged. Once you have arrived it’s a 20 minutes flight on a puddle jumper to Dangriga Town. During this time you will get an eagle’s view of the mix between the fifty shades of deep blue Caribbean Sea and the dense green jungle along the Belize’s coast. Before you know it, you will be on the ground at the Dangriga airport where you will be greeted by a friendly staff member who will transport you to the dock for your short 30 minute boat ride on the wavy waters of the glistening Caribbean Sea. Look up, you have arrived! You are greeted with open arms, your soothing towel and a refreshing mosquito bite cocktail.

Don’t stress about the transfers between BZE and Dangriga or the boat ride, Coco Plum makes everything simple. The office will send you information about how to proceed through the airport etc… Enjoy the short flight, you get to see how beautiful the country is! – TripAdvisor Review By: Kristin S.

TripAdvisor Awards

Still waiting for the catch? Well, don’t just take it from us – take it from previous guests, folks just like yourself who wrote all about their experiences on TripAdvisor. In fact, it is because of these amazing guest reviews that Coco Plum Island Resort is named #1 hotel in Belize and a top ranking hotel in Central America in the categories of the Best Small Hotel, Best Hotel for Romance, and Best Hotel for Service. Coco Plum Island also received the unique accolade of being awarded as one of the Top Small Hotels in the entire WORLD!

So, what are you waiting for? Think no more, this little piece of paradise is the perfect antidote for anything that ails you – a tropical wonderland with a pristine and oh-so private adults-only shimmering beach coupled with over-the-top personalized service. Everything you need is at your fingertips and there’s no need to spend precious vacation time waiting in long food lines or fighting for a nice spot on a crowded beach.

Top Festivals in Belize

Top 5 Belize Festivals You Don’t Want To Miss

Known for its sparkling blue Caribbean shoreline and lush jungle rainforest, Belize is a tropical treasure. But, what exactly keeps visitors coming back year after year to Belize? The answer is simple really: its people.

What was once a British colony that gained independence in 1981, Belize is neighbored by several Spanish Central American countries to the west and the Belize Barrier Reef along the Caribbean to the east positioning Belize as a true melting point of various cultures. As a small nation with a little over 350,000 residents, Belize is rich with different ethnic groups such as Maya, Mestizo, Creole, Garifuna, Mennonite, Chinese, East Indian, and Lebanese all of which harmoniously co-exist by bringing distinct parts of their culture to Belize whether that be in the form of language, art, music, or food.

So, what’s the best way to experience the vibrant Belize culture? Well, there’s almost always something happening. Visitors can take part in one of the many festivals, national holidays, and events to witness the very best of Belize.

Here are The Top 5 Festivals in Belize You Shouldn’t Miss: 

  1. The Belize Lobster Festival belize-lobster-festival

    Summer in Belize kicks off with annual lobster festivals held in the major coastal towns of Belize. These weekend long beach festivals celebrate lobster in all its glory by cooking all sorts of fresh lobster delicacies and ending the day with live music and beach parties. In general, the tropical climate of summer in Belize marks the opening of various foods coming into season and lobster is no different. At Coco Plum Island Resort, we host Lobster Fest on different dates in June and July. What starts with a morning of lobster hunting ends with cooking your fresh catch of the day served in the form of a three-course meal. Bar snacks include a wide variety of lobster cooked in almost any way you can think of including: lobster fritters, lobster ceviche, lobster bruschetta and many more. Enjoy live entertainment by local drummers and dancers along with friendly competitions hosted by Lord Byron. You don’t want to miss this explosion of Belizean culture.

    Dates for 2018 Lobster Fest: June 20, June 27, July 4, and July 11.

  2. The Hopkins Mango Festival hopkins-belize-mango-festival

    Did you know that Belize is home to over 20 varieties of mangoes? Number Eleven Mangoes, Julie Mangoes, Blue Mangoes, Thundershock Mangoes – you name it and Belize has it. As mangoes begin coming into season throughout the country of Belize, you’ll see many locals cooling down with a refreshing mango on the street side, riverbanks, or on the beach. Most locals eat the mango hole, tearing the skin with their teeth; others also mix the mangoes with a specialty “sauce” made up of salt, black pepper, and habanero pepper. As a matter of fact, Belizeans take their mangoes so seriously that they have dedicated an entire festival for mangoes in Hopkins, Belize! The annual Mango Festival is held at the start of the mango season usually in the beginning of June. Our sister resort, Belizean Dreams, participates in this annual festival with its own booth complete with an assortment of juicy mangoes, mango smoothies, and games.

    Dates for 2018 Mango Festival: June 2 & 3

  3. Belize Independence Day Celebrations & Carnival carnival-in-belize

    The entire month of September is filled with joyous celebrations as Belizeans around the country honor their independence marked on September 21, 1981. Patriotism is at an all time high as you can expect to see streets, houses, and businesses all decorated in red, white, and blue colors with Belizeans proudly waving their flags. It is not uncommon to witness block parties, national pageants, and children’s parade through the street. One pageant in particular, the Queen of the Bay National Pageant, dates back to 1946 when Belize was still a British commonwealth nation. This pageant is held every year on the September 10th national holiday that commemorates Belize’s original independence from Spain at the Battle of St. George’s Caye in 1738. It is rooted in tradition and each year hosts a specific national theme unique to Belize. Coco Plum Island Resort and Belizean Dreams Resort are proud community sponsors of the past two Queen of the Bay winners reigning from Dangriga. The culmination of September celebrations ends with the Carnival March in Belize City as parades line the entire city with participants dressed in colorful Caribbean colors dancing through the streets!

    St. George’s Caye Day 2018: September 10

    Independence Day: September 21

  4. Garifuna Settlement Day garifuna-settlement-day-belize

    Garifuna Settlement Day is a Belizean national holiday held on November 19th of each year commemorating the arrival of the Garifuna people to Belize in the early 1800’s after being exiled from the neighboring Caribbean islands. Regarded as a mixture of African slaves and Arawak Indians, the Garifuna people make up a special part of Belize’s population. Towns like Dangriga and Hopkins are the hubs of the cultural celebration throughout the month of November. Imagine witnessing scenes of drumming, dancing, and local street food as you excitedly learn about this rich culture. On the eve of November 19th, the streets close down for an all night party. Residents wait for the arrival of the yurumei in the early morning as local Garifuna people reenact the original arrival along the shores of Belize in wooden canoes. It’s truly a sight to behold! The actual day of November 19th ends with a parade in Dangriga Town. In the past, Coco Plum Island & Belizean Dreams has had its own float for employees to take part in the festivities! You too can partake in the activities as Coco Plum Island will be offering live drumming and dancing weekly on every Monday in November.

    Garifuna Cultural Festival at Coco Plum: November 5, 12, 19, and 26

  5. Jankunu Christmas Festival  Jankun Festival in Belize

    Christmas in Belize is rooted in various cultural and religious traditions. Specifically, in Dangriga Town locals gather around the streets to witness the Jankunu or “John Canoe” dancing acompanied with Garifuna drumming. This colorful masquerade dance is actually a warrior dance where the males are outfitted in pink masks and head wraps, white clothing, and seashells below the knees that shake artfully with each movement. This dance is a careful act that represents the Garifuna resistance to slavery with a special meaning behind each movement. Today, Dangriga is home to the annual Jankunu Festival hosted at the Ecumenical High School where senior Jankunu groups compete against each other. Each group practices the routine for several days and always gives a memorable performance. All Belizeans look forward to the festive cheer the Christmas season brings!

    The Jankunu Festival usually occurs after Christmas each year.

    So, what are you waiting for? Book your flight and head down to Belize to experience one of our many festivals!

Meet the Honorary Mayors of Coco Plum Island Interviewed by Guest, Kris R.

My husband and I visited Coco Plum (CP) for the first time in 2016. This was also the first time we heard the island had, not one, but two honorary mayors. Their names wafted through the conversations of guests and staff alike, accompanied by tones of reverence, a bit of awe, and always delight. There’s been an air of mystique surrounding them since we first heard of them. This dynamic duo has enjoyed the wonders of Coco Plum Island Resort 14 (yes, that’s right, f-o-u-r-t-e-e-n) times. Can you imagine taking a vacation only to return to the island almost every year after?

On our third trip to CP in February we struck gold. Oh, for joy, Mr. and Mrs. Mayor were there too, and what fun we had! Their reputations had proceeded them, and they did not disappoint. They were fun, warm, vivacious, charming, and hospitable. Meeting the famed couple was a highlight of our trip. I sat down with them at the Overwater Villa to ask the mayors a few questions with CP blog readers in mind.

Meet Bonnie and Sam Ellerbee. They hail from the great state of Georgia and both have that wonderful southern accent as a result. Bonnie is a retired school teacher and principal of 33 years and Sam, also retired, wrapped up his career working as a Land and Legal Rights Advisor for Georgia Transmission. In addition to Belize, they have traveled to Alaska, Norway, South Africa, Ireland, Germany, Budapest, Scotland, England, US Virgin Islands, Aruba, Costa Rica, Jamaica, and have been on many Caribbean cruises.

Their first trip to Belize was in 2007. Sam had wanted to explore Belize for quite some time but traveling to the country from the US was difficult then. When a helicopter pilot friend of his told him new flights had just recently become available, Bonnie hopped online to do a search, and Coco Plum was the first resort to appear. Here’s what they had to say about Coco Plum:

Tell me about the first time you came to Coco Plum Island. What did it look like then and what were your first impressions?

Bonnie: I remember saying to Sam ‘There’s no way this place is as pretty as it looks on the internet’, but when we arrived it was not only as pretty as it was online, it was even better.

As far as what we saw … there were just 7 cabanas back then. The dock was long and straight with just one palapa. All the rest of the island was undeveloped. The dining and bar area were there but looked far different than they do currently. Bird island was three times as large as it is now. The water was just as beautiful then … that hasn’t changed at all. As for greeting you, they didn’t do quite as much then as they do these days, but they’ve always made you feel like royalty when you step off the boat.

Sam: My first memory was the waist high water that was so clear and clean, and of looking over the side of the boat at all the star fish.

Bonnie: Before the island was fully developed, they used to do bonfires at the end of the island. Those are some good memories too.

coco-plum-2007

What keeps you coming back year after year?

Sam: The people.

Bonnie: We travel to a lot of other places, but this is really the only one we keep coming back to, and it really is the people.

Is it also the culture?

Sam: Yes, we have enjoyed going inland and attending some of the soccer games, visiting Placencia and Dangriga, and spending time with staff on their days off.

Bonnie: The staff treats you like family and they include you in some of the things that they do as a family.

Sam: In fact, on our refrigerator we have pictures of our Belizean Family along with the photos of our own family.

Bonnie: Speaking of the culture, one of first impressions was what I perceived as poverty when we went inland to explore the jungles and to do some of the excursions. But I don’t see that poverty anymore, or rather, I don’t see it as poverty. These people are, as a whole, very happy people. They do not have many material things or some of the financial advantages that many Americans have, but they have everything that is needed in life and they are happy people. They have their priorities right.

I love it! They live up to their slogan. You truly are only a stranger until you arrive.

coco-plum-staff

What are some of your favorite activities here?

Sam: I really enjoy the cave tubing … and the soccer matches when we’ve gone to the mainland. We’ve also enjoyed the starfish and hermit crab races over the years!

Bonnie: Meeting other island guests. We’ve met some wonderful people here … people I’ll never forget. I enjoy the snorkeling too. I love being in the water.

What advice can you offer to CP Blog readers coming here for the first time?

Bonnie: Explore! Don’t sit at the bar all day. Go out and visit the neighboring islands. Snorkel, take pictures, collect shells, go kayaking, and paddle boarding and see what’s here. If you’re lucky, like I was, you’ll get to swim with a manatee.

Sam: Enjoy the water! Even if you don’t swim, the water is so warm and shallow that you can walk to the other island to the south and explore it. Grab a fishing pole and fish off the dock. Bring some great books and RELAX.

Finally, to wrap this up, here’s what Bas and Michelle Zabaneh, owners of Coco Plum Island Resort, had to say about Coco Plum’s honorary mayors:

“Over the years, the Ellerbee’s have truly become family. When we first started Coco Plum with only three cabanas it was so easy to get to know each and every guest. As we’ve grown, we take such pleasure in meeting a few of our travelers. The Ellerbee’s are a true testament to what Coco Plum is all about – arriving as strangers and leaving as family.”

One last bit of advice from me … do be sure to enjoy the other guests on the island. Take a minute and introduce yourself. You never know what adventures you’ll have together, and you might just make a friend for life.

New Year; New Amenities

Happy 2018 from the owners, management, and staff of Coco Plum Island Resort!

With the last few days winding down in 2017, we can gladly reminisce on all the joyous moments we had this year—from our numerous awards, to our succulent feast of lobsters, to the cultural activities we hosted for all our guests during Garifuna Settlement Month. We can rest assured knowing that 2017 went perfectly as planned and that a good time was had by all. To celebrate, we’ll surely end the year with a bang at our annual New Year’s Eve festivities which includes fireworks, music, great food and dancing. Just imagine bringing in the New Year on your very own private island listening to the swaying sounds of the Caribbean while watching the fireworks over the Sea! We are also excited to announce the addition of our new spa facility & yoga deck.

Here are a few pictures graciously shared with us by our guests who vacationed with us in 2017!

Now, with that said, we are anxiously awaiting 2018 as we hope to go above and beyond the standards and expectations that we met this year.

Here are the Top 3 Things We’re Looking Forward To In 2018:

1. 2018 is marked with the official grand opening of the Coco Plum spa, the Serenity Spa. For years, guests have enjoyed massages by the Sunshine Massage team on any of our overwater docks. Nestled within our lush mangrove landscaping, our guests will now enjoy their massages in the brand new Overwater Spa which will provide an even more private and relaxing ambiance. Complete with two indoor massage rooms and an outdoor deck equipped with spa beds and fully loaded amenities, the Serenity Spa is the epitome of peace and tranquilty. The magical hands of Mariel, Stacey, and the Sunshine team will leave you feeling fresh and rejuvenated. Guests will also enjoy a multitude of additional spa services—facials, manicures, and pedicures to name a few. Are you ready to get pampered from head to toe? Mention that you are interested in spa services upon booking and your services will be confirmed upon check-in!

2. Revitalize your senses with sunset yoga overlooking the Caribbean Sea and Maya Mountains. Complementing the Serenity Spa in 2018, our new yoga deck is located on the boardwalk near the front end of the island. This breezy, open-air yoga deck, complete with teak flooring and breathtaking views is the perfect place to get in a yoga session. Private classes will be available upon request (72-hour notice required) or guests can choose to simply practice on their own. Complimentary yoga mats available. Join us with all hands on deck in 2018!

3. Lastly, but of course not least, this upcoming year marks the celebration of our 3rd Annual Lobster Fest. The last two years have seen great success as guests have enjoyed beers by the bucket, scrumptious lobster delicacies, and live cultural entertainment. The 3rd annual Lobster Fest will be another event for the books! If you’ve had the pleasure of enjoying any of our previous fests, then you better book your cabana for next year as you definitely won’t want to miss it!

Our Romantic Private Island Getaway At The Adults Only All Inclusive Beach Resort, Coco Plum Cay In Belize

Below is a guest blog post by Ady of Verbal Gold Blog.

It doesn’t get any better than staying on a private island off the coast of Belize. Coco Plum Island Resort Belize is an all inclusive beach resort for adults seeking a romantic private island getaway. Our stay was truly the most relaxing vacation of our life. Coco Plum is known as the honeymoon hotspot and I can see how the vibe there would make the perfect honeymoon, anniversary, birthday, or getaway for the absolute best vacation with the love of your life!

I was really impressed with the welcome we received as soon as we stepped off the boat. We were greeted with a cocktail and shown to our room as we were given more information on the island. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming. I’m not sure what other resort you can go to and be on a first name basis with the staff. They were incredible at making you feel right at home. Coco Plum is paradise. I’m thinking of making it an annual thing.

Transportation

Coco Plum Cay is a little island nestled 8 miles off the coast of a small town 80 miles south of Belize City named Dangriga. Belize City is only a two hour flight from several major U.S. cities such as Miami, Houston, or Dallas. It was only a 3 hour flight from Atlanta and is the closest over-water bungalow vacation.

Once you get to Belize City you get to hop on a puddle jumper to Dangriga which is a 15 minute flight. From there you’ll be picked up in an air conditioned van that will take you to a boat. Driving through Dangriga was pretty interesting. I love seeing how people live in different parts of the world. Once you’re on the boat, it’s a 20 minute ride to Coco Plum Cay. Don’t worry, your luggage is taken care of, carried, and stored under the boat by the staff. It gets delivered straight to your cabana once you arrive.

coco-plum-resort-and-rooms

Resort + Rooms

There are a limited number of comfortably appointed ocean front cabanas so it’s never over crowded. In fact, I really felt like I owned the entire island because everyone was off doing their own thing. I’m a huge fan of the “adults only” island because that’s how I like to enjoy my vacations… kid free. There are 18 cabanas, including 1 two story three bedroom over water villa that’s perfect for a girls trip or 3 couples. The overwater villa includes your own private entrance, sunning porch, and an array of other exclusive amenities.

coco-plum-overwater-villa

The beach cabanas are all painted a variety of happy colors ranging from pink to yellow to blue and nestled along the private island right at the edge of the water, steps from your own private porch. Perfect for early morning cups of coffee overlooking the water or resting in the colorful hammock. Obviously I’d go for the pink one! There are 3 different types of cabanas that range from standard to premium with the only difference being the amount of space in the room. Quite frankly, you’re on a private island in your own private room so they’re all pretty great options. The interior in most is white and bright with exposed wood beams and high ceilings. Most of the premium cabanas sit at the end of the island so you have more privacy. There is a volleyball net and a private dock at the end of the island as well as multiple lounging areas and daybeds.

coco-plum-island-resort-beach-accommodations

Our room had complimentary water bottles with purified crystal springs gallons of drinking water so you could refill and stay hydrated during your stay. No other place I’ve been to has offered that and I thought it was a major plus. Such a nice touch when resorts pay attention to the little details like that. All rooms have air conditioning, a major plus, ample counter space in the bathroom, and ocean views. All things I look for before I book a beach vacation.

relax-on-the-beach-at-your-very-own-private-island

There are quite a few areas to hang out and relax on the private island. You will find multiple lounging areas over the water or under a thatched roof umbrella along the beach. There’s even a private beach at the very end of the island that is hidden by mangroves. There’s a bamboo pole for hanging your clothes and well…you get the idea.

The 16 acre island is lush filled with mangroves, palm trees, and tropical flowers. The island is covered with perfectly manicured sand raked daily, so shoes are optional. At night, the island is well lit so you can find your way to dinner and the bar but the light isn’t obvious and doesn’t take away from the island feel. You almost don’t even notice it. You’ll find conch shells everywhere you look as most are used for decoration around the island.

all-inclusive-food-and-drink-at-coco-plum

Food + Drink

The resort is all inclusive. There are multiple packages but regardless all of your food and drinks are covered. Yes, even local alcoholic ones and mixed drinks. Now before you turn your nose up at the thought of an all inclusive resort and you start thinking about buffets let me stop you right there because this was the farthest thing from that image ever.

Think white table cloths, 5 star dining, 3 course meals made from all naturally sources local organic island delicacies (with wide eyes slowly shuts gaping mouth). You don’t even get a menu. The breakfast lunch and dinner meal is written on the board daily. They are extremely accommodating to your meal preferences, allergies, and dietary restrictions. For example, we had burgers for lunch one day but they were offering fish, beef, or chicken and since I don’t eat meat I went with the fish burger. Belize it or not (see what I did there lol) it was the best and even better than a real burger. I didn’t eat anything I didn’t like while I was there and for an only child who is an extremely picky eater that’s major.

food-at-coco-plum-island-resort

There is a dining hall where guests can eat along the water outside or take in the ocean views from an air conditioned dining room. There’s also a bar which is everyone’s favorite place to hang out during the day. You can hear the waves crashing underneath you while you sip the most incredible island drinks at the open air bar with some of your newest but now closest friends. For happy hour every day you’re served “bar snacks.” They are like appetizers and the perfect amount of food to hold you over until dinner, which is from 6:30-8:30.

Coco Plum is in the Top 10 most romantic destinations in the world according to Trip Advisor and they did not disappoint. One night they surprised us wth a private romantic dinner on the dock with candles and flower petals. I can see why they were named the 2017 Travelers Choice. We had baked lobster and I swear it was the best thing I’ve ever eaten. Mrs. Jude, the chef on the island, can cook y’all!

My husband went fishing while we were there and brought back his catch for dinner. Mrs. Jude let us in the kitchen and showed us how to prepare and cook it island style (where you eat allllll the parts). We made fried red snapper, fried trigger fish, and blackened barracuda and it was delicious! Probably one of the coolest experiences!! Then we got to share it with everyone on the island. Seeing all the guests and staff enjoying your catch and just smiling and happy was such a treat.

unlimited-drinks-at-coco-plum

Now onto the drinks! Normally with all inclusive you get watered down sugary crappy drinks with bottom shelf alcohol that begs you for an upcharge to upgrade your drinks, but not here! The drink menu was insane. I don’t think I even made it through the entire list…but I tried. The fresh picture perfect cocktails couldn’t have been better. There was something for everyone on the menu but I stuck to the frozen rum drinks and tried one in every flavor! Mmmmm delish! Pretty sure I had one in my hand at all times. Don’t forget to try the local beer, Belikin. I loved it!

island-activites-at-coco-plum

Activities

There are so many activities on Coco Plum that you’ll run out of days before you get to do everything. Try not to squeeze everything in your stay or you’ll end up tired and drained. Save some things for your trip back! Remember, it’s a vacation so spend the majority of your time relaxing and take it all in. Yes, they do have wifi but disconnect and enjoy everything the island has to offer.

fishing-at-coco-plum

Coco Plum offers an array of tours you can do on your stay. They offer mainland tours or local water activities you can enjoy. Choose from zip lining, cave tubing, snorkeling, fishing, charter a boat, scuba diving, sunset cruise, Belize zoo, or explore the Mayan Ruins of Xunantunich “Maiden of the Rock.” We were only there for 4 days so we chose to keep it close to home and go snorkeling at the reef. Mike also went fishing in the morning one day and really enjoyed that!

There are also a ton of water activities you can do on your own that are complimentary. Most places will charge you to rent paddle boards so I love that everything at Coco Plum was free to use at any time! We paddle boarded one day (I only fell once), took a kayak out, hopped on the hobby cat for a sailing lesson, and snorkeled just steps from our villa. There are also fun games to play scattered around the island. There is a volleyball court, ping pong table, corn hole, and ladder ball toss. There are board games, cards, and even a library of books that you can read. The amenities are crazy. I swear they thought of everything!
