Coco Plum Family Updates

What’s Happening with the Coco Plum Staff?

Coco Plum Island Resort is renowned for the astounding experiences and exceptional services it offers to travelers from all over the world – each of whom instantly become a part of the Coco Plum Family upon their arrival to our Belize private island. These services and experiences are provided by remarkable and genuine team members who have continued to grow and improve their skills. 2017 has been an insightful year offering unique growth opportunities, team building, and in true Coco Plum fashion, a ton of fun.


The Coco Plum staff ventured in a host of new experiences to help them grow as individuals and further assist them in providing the superior Customer Service for which they were awarded this past year by TripAdvisor, including the more recent TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.

In August 2017, all the Coco Plum and Belizean Dreams resort staff, including the reservations staff and a few operational staff members, embarked on a Customer Service Excellence training with the Institute of Professional Development led by Mr. Paul Lecky. During this two-day course, staff participated in several group activities, some of which gave them the opportunity to recreate challenging real-life scenarios to really help them polish their approaches and increase their knowledge while fostering stronger team spirit. This training certainly re-energized the staff! Later in the year, all department Supervisors received yet another specialized training in Management & Leadership Skills to ensure that they are adequately equipped to continue nurturing and developing staff. See what Guest Services Manager, Alex R., had to say below:

It was truly mind opening.

This stronger team unity was a huge plus at the first annual Beach Summer Fest hosted by the owners and administrative staff as a thank-you to all frontline and resort staff. The owners and administrative staff decided to take some tips from our other team members and chose to serve and host them for this fun-filled celebration. Needless to say, all had an enjoyable time as they participated in various games like dizzy-izzy, 3-legged race and even a watermelon eating contest! The first place winning team consisted of staff from both Coco Plum & Belizean Dreams. Congrats again to Charles, Patricia, Nicole, Ervin, and Ber for taking the top place at Summer Fest 2017! Of course, the night ended with live music and a punta dancing contest. This event was certainly one for the books and we are sure every member of the team very much appreciated receiving the warm service they are accustomed to providing for others. In addition, several of the Coco Plum team members took a much deserved mini-vacation in Cayo as well!





Lastly, Coco Plum recently celebrated earning 1,000 TripAdvisor reviews. This milestone comes from the excellent service our staff delivers to all guests. Join us in saying thank-you to our Coco Plum team members!


As a result of these staff initiatives, Sunday Funday was born! Free to all guests who book any of our amazing All Inclusive Packages – the Sunday Funday is an entire day dedicated to both the staff and guests’ enjoyment of the island, creating a unique opportunity for all to enjoy time with each other in fun and merriment. Let’s just say, the fun really begins when the games begin!

Warm Regards,

Why We Love Belize in the Spring (And You Should, Too!)

Undeniably, there is no “bad time” to visit Belize. Luckily, we are blessed with summerlike weather year round where there is always something to do and see in Belize!

Unlike most other parts of the world, Belize only has two seasons – wet and dry. Our “dry” season is our peak season for visitors who come looking to escape a bleak and dreary Northern winter. Dry season begins in late November (around Thanksgiving) and ends in May. Within our dry season, however, there are three months that are especially the warmest and driest of them all – March, April, and May. That means these months are prime months for all aquatic activities like kayaking, paddle boarding, swimming, diving, snorkeling, fishing and so much more!


Winter in your part of the world vs. “Winter” in Belize!

March truly starts off the dry season by inviting strong cool breezes and especially warm sunny days. These pristine conditions are ideal for taking a sunset cruise along the Caribbean Sea or enjoying the complimentary use of our hobie cats as the wind guides your sails. With so much wind, Belizeans also break out their kite building skills, as they create colorful creations that cruise the open blue skies.


The perfect sailing conditions!

April brings clearer skies and warmer days making it the best month for diving and snorkeling fanatics alike. For divers, the greatest adventure of all is diving with whalesharks; these majestic creatures can be seen around the full moons of April and May. Belizeans also get ready to celebrate one of the biggest holidays in Belize, Easter, where traditions remain strong and the fun continues.


Diving along the Belize Barrier Reef!

There is no need to wait until June for a summer vacation, when May begins and ends with the utmost perfect summer conditions. Now that Coco Plum has extended the “low season” rates to start as early as May 1, 2018 rather than later in June, you can begin to book that summer vacay today!


Summer vacation deals at Coco Plum starting as early as May!

The wet season brings short bursts of rain usually in the early mornings and late nights, creating cooler temperatures that Belizeans wait for all year. In addition, this time of the year usually means lower hotel rates throughout Belize. The start of the low season towards the end of May and June mark the time of the year where many tropical foods come into season such as mango, conch, and lobster. Don’t forget to join us at Coco Plum for our third annual Lobster Festival where guests can spend the day hunting for lobster in the Caribbean Sea and return to a feast of lobster delicacies, live music, and fun & games all at no extra cost!

Official dates for the 2018 Lobster Fest as are follows:

JUNE 20, 2018
JUNE 27, 2018
JULY 4, 2018
JULY 11, 2018

Contact us today to book your oceanfront cabana because spots are filling up quickly!

Belize is off to an Exciting Start in 2017!

Recently named as the 6th “Best Value” destination by Lonely Planet in 2017, Belize is every traveler’s paradise.

In the recent Best in Travel 2017 publication, Lonely Planet boasts about the unique paradox that is Belize complete with diving, snorkeling, and fishing along the Caribbean Sea and exotic wildlife waiting to be uncovered in the pristine jungle rainforest. Geographically, Belize is a nation located in the northern part of Central America and bordered by the Caribbean Sea to the east; this makes Belize an unmatched country that is recognized as both a Central American and Caribbean nation. Here, you can find a distinct blend of cultures ranging from Mestizo, Creole, Mayan, Mennonite, Garifuna, and a mix of all the above! All cultures have their own language, but since Belize was once a British colony, English is the official language making it easy for travelers to navigate our beautiful country.


In addition, Lonely Planet points out that along with Belize’s unique location is its small size. Belize actually has the same landmass as the state of Massachusetts, but with a population of only about 375,000 residents. When traveling to Belize, we encourage travelers to keep and open mind and seek out as many locals as possible. Belizeans are regarded as some of the friendliest people in the world and are more than happy to share parts of their culture and history with tourists. Coco Plum Island Resort is a locally owned and managed resort. Many of our staff members have been with us for years and are proud to show off the Best of Belize. There’s a reason we were named the #2 Best Hotel for Service in Belize!


Best of Belize at Coco Plum Island Resort!

So, now that you’ve learned a bit more about Belize, the next question you’re asking yourself is …

How can I get to Belize?

And there’s more exciting news for Belize in the start of this New Year! 2017 has also brought about new, direct flights from major U.S. cities. Southwest Airlines just announced direct flights from Ft. Lauderdale (FLL) to Belize (BZE). This flight service will commence on June 4th, 2017. This route will also connect eastern U.S. cities such as Baltimore, New York, Washington D.C. Atlanta, Tampa, & Orlando so it will be even easier to get to Belize! Southwest also offers other direct flights to Belize through Houston (Hobby) and limited service flights through Denver (DEN) which will be extended for Summer 2017.

To see a comprehensive list of airline services to Belize click here.


Where should I stay?

Once you’ve gotten your flights booked and scheduled, there is absolutely nothing else to worry about because Coco Plum Island Resort is an all inclusive private island. Send us your flight itinerary and we’ll handle all the details. Our Belize all inclusive honeymoon / lovers’ getaway package includes: local transportation, oceanfront accommodations, all meals and local alcoholic beverages, complimentary use of our water sport equipment, and exciting adventure tours!

Javier and Christina's Belize Beach Wedding

A Magical Caribbean Beach Wedding

Congratulations Javier & Christina

Wanderlust: a strong desire to travel. As a young man, he sailed pass a quaint little island paradise in the southern Caribbean waters of Belize. What he stumbled upon was truly a dream come true. Met by forever smiling, warm and friendly staff he was generously welcomed and fed. He was hooked. The views from every angle of this little hidden treasure were unbelievable. He vowed to return soon. And he would return to marry the love of his life at his most favorite place in these Caribbean waters.

Coco Plum Island Resort, one of the highest rated Belize all inclusive resorts, is a great destination for honeymooners, lovers, and even friends looking for a secluded getaway. Coco Plum also offers its couples the opportunity to get married on local soil.

16 Acre Belize Private Island

Whether the couple comes alone or does an entire private island rental to share with friends or family, our weddings are a spectacular display of artistry and love. Leave all the planning to a wedding planner, who coordinates the day, leaving all the days leading up to the ceremony to the enjoyment of the lovebirds.

Our lovely couple and their family surely did enjoy each day leading up to their ceremony as they relished in our local creations of our skilled bartenders and chefs. Between swimming, paddle boarding, a little karaoke and diving there was still just enough to time to lay back in a beach chair to enjoy our famous Mosquito Bites.

The wedding day quickly draws near, and the anticipation builds. The island grounds men have been working arduously to prepare the spots for the ceremony, cocktail and reception area. The wedding planner makes all the final touches – floating candles, tiki torches, a lit pathway to the ceremonial spot, floral centerpieces, and of course putting the champagne on ice – as the bride and groom each get ready in their cabanas.

The ceremony begins and then ends ends just with the sun fading away in the background. A toast is made as the crowd cheers to the union: fireworks complete this breathtaking scene.

The unwavering kitchen staff continues to produce one wonderful course after another for the reception buffet. By the last tray of food, a line has formed and the party sits down to enjoy their meal. The band plays light music during this time, but are steadily preparing for the party that will occur soon after. Shoes come off, skirts get hiked up a little and the dancing in the sand begins and continues thru the night.

Belize Lobster Festival

Coco Plum’s First Annual Lobster Festival!

Kick off Summer with an island celebration of the opening of lobster season in Belize!

With the days getting longer and our tans getting darker, summer is definitely around the corner; that means that a large number of beach activities and beach parties are on the horizon! A typical Belizean summer entails various agricultural fests, as a whole array of foods “come in to season.” As agricultural products are produced by the season, the tropical climate of a Belizean Summer welcomes mangoes, cashews, and lobsters by throwing large festivals – or “fests.” Get ready to experience all the savory, fresh flavor that Belize has to offer!

Lobster Ceviche at Belize Lobster Festival

Lobster Ceviche

The Lobster Fest is the most popular, as it is held multiple times in various locations, including San Pedro, Caye Caulker and Placencia. Traditionally, fishing for lobster has been a source of revenue for many local residents; now, we are happy to share the culture surrounding lobster with visitors to Belize! These events – with their discounted drinks, wide array of creative lobster dishes, free concerts and fun competitions – draw quite the crowd, from locals to tourists alike. Hotels in these locations are fully booked just weeks before the event, as everyone wants to ensure that they can be a part of the lobster frenzy.

Guests of Coco Plum are in luck as we are offering our first private island version of the Belize Lobster Fest experience! Look out for music, games and of course tasty lobster delicacies. Be prepared to devour lobster anyway you like: grilled, fried, boiled, or even in a delicious ceviche. Enjoy all that Lobster Fest has to offer without the huge crowds, while enjoying the unlimited local drinks included in each of our All Inclusive packages.

Lobster Fritters at Belize Lobster Festival

Belizean-style Lobster Fritters

The festivities begin June 29, 2016 and will continue every Wednesday until July 20, 2016. Stay tuned as we cannot wait to show you the surprises of our first Coco Plum Lobster Fest!

Snorkeling in Belize

Top 5 Things to Do at Coco Plum Island Resort

Island Activities at Coco Plum Island Resort, Belize 

Often referred to as the best place to “be as relaxed or as adventurous as you wish,” Coco Plum Island Resort offers plenty of opportunities to explore the surrounding waters. With miles of secluded beach on your own private island and only 42 guests on the resort at any given time, the island is essentially yours to do as your wish. Lounge, relax, or set sail … this is what island life is all about!


Located just miles away from the second largest barrier reef in the world and surrounded by turquoise waters, our Belize island offers a peak into the abundant and healthy marine life. Explore on your own with your loved one or let our expert guides show you their favorite spots. Island living at its finest, our guests enjoy complimentary use of the hobie cats, stand-up paddle boards, kayaks, as well as our snorkeling and fishing gear – it’s all part of our Belize all inclusive packages.

1.) Hobie Cat Sailing, Kayaking, and SUP’s. 

The calm waters surrounding Coco Plum are ideal for all levels of water sport enthusiasts. Take a tour of Coco Plum on our kayaks and SUP’s to get a full view of the island. Be sure to wear sunscreen and a hat as you will surely get a lot of sun!

2.) Fishing.

Experience the thrill of fishing in Belize where it’s possible to catch different species year round! Whether you are an expert or a novice fisherman/fisherwoman, Coco Plum is the place to get the catch of a lifetime. For one, the shallow waters surrounding our island are prime for fly fishing expeditions. Wade on your own or let our guides take you out to play catch and release with the elusive bonefish, permits, and tarpon. Take a fishing trip in deeper waters for a chance to catch barracuda, grouper, or mackerel. The locals also enjoy “drop” fishing with a simple line, hook, and sinker to catch various types of snapper – these are perfect to bring back to the island where the kitchen will cook your fresh catch anyway you like.

Learn more about our all inclusive fishing packages here. Or, you can also let us know ahead of time and we can book fishing excursions for you!

3.) Diving. 

Belize is home to world class diving along the largest living barrier reef in the world. If you are an avid diver, we definitely recommend our all inclusive dive package where guests go on two dives to some of the best spots along the Souther Barrier Reef per day. Enjoy our speciality dives to the historic Belize Blue Hole which has been designated the Eighth Wonder of the World. Our divers will have opportunity to dive the depths of this magnificent sinkhole as well as stops along Lighthouse Reef Atoll and the “Aquarium.” You can be sure to have an unforgettable, bucket list worthy experience while diving in Belize!

4.) Snorkeling.

Snorkeling is a great way to see all the underwater life that Belize has to offer without the pressure of diving.  Simply swim and float atop the water and be on the lookout for a wide array of creatures – rays, nurse sharks, colorful fish and more! Here at Coco Plum our all inclusive packages include weekly snorkel trips to several stops along the Southern Barrier Reef with our experienced guides (weather permitting). If you’ve never snorkeled before, we recommend snorkeling around the shallow spots on the island before your tour – our guides are always happy to help!

Birding in Belize: Top 5 Most Iconic Birds of Belize

Belize is a haven for over 500 species of birds, making it the ideal getaway for bird watchers and nature lovers alike. Whether you are an expert birder or simply enjoy the beauty of birds, Belize surely won’t disappoint with our wide array of tropical birds, both in the jungle and on the sea. Our Belize private island makes for the perfect spot to observe birds in nature.

Man-O-War Caye in Belize perfect for birders

Guest Photo by TripAdvisor user, “My Superbia.” A beautiful tour of Man-O-War Caye.

Coco Plum Island Resort is located directly across from the Man-O-War Caye, also known as “Bird Caye.” What might seem like an abandoned mangrove island from afar, is actually government designated and monitored bird sanctuary. If you take a closer look you’ll see hundreds of birds wistfully circling the island and eventually coming to a rest on the mangrove limbs. As part of our all inclusive packages, our ever informative tour guides will be sure to stop and give you a detailed description of Belize’s bird sanctuary, pointing out some iconic birds of Belize on the way to your snorkel trip to the Belize Barrier Reef.

Here are the Top 5 Most Iconic Birds of Belize:

5.) The Brown Pelican. While Pelicans are relatively common in coastal areas, they are truly a treasured staple of Belize. Stop and take a look at their expansive breadth and large throat pouches. If you stay and look for a while you will surely see the pelicans unique diving ability – some dive from heights as far as 60 feet!

Bird watching in Belize

4.) The Booby Birds: Belize is home to the red-footed, blue-footed, and masked booby birds. On Man-O-War Caye you will see many of these red-footed boobies, which are actually the smallest of all the booby species. While the red webbed feet of the boobies are the first thing that catches your eye, it is their skilled gliding ability that stands out as they can seemingly walk on top of the water to catch their prey.

3.) Frigate Bird: Also present on Man-O-War Caye, is the frigate bird that one can see nesting and mating. The booby birds and frigate birds have a unique relationship. Unlike the booby birds, frigate birds do not have webbed feet nor are they able to dive for their food. Thus, the frigate birds can frequently be seen snatching food from the booby birds. During mating season, the male frigate bird throat becomes inflated to catch the attention of the females … what a show off!

2.) Scarlet Macaw: The Scarlet Macaw is the largest, and by Belizean standards, the most beautiful of all the parrot species. These majestic birds can be found along the upper Macal River in the Chiquibil National Park, and can fly at a whopping speed of 35 miles per hour.

1.) Toucan: And the number one most iconic bird of Belize, also known as the national bird of Belize, the Toucan. Commonly known as bill bird, the keel-billed toucan is a national jewel. It is known for its very sociable behavior and can be found throughout the forests of Belize, nesting in the holes of various tree trunks.
