Coco Plum's second annual Lobster Fest!

Lobster Fest 2018

This summer Coco Plum hosted its 2nd Annual Lobster Fest, which by guests’ account went splendidly! Last year’s Fest seems like truly a test run, as this year the island staff, chefs and management went above and beyond in enhancing the festivities for our guests.

The Belizean Island Lobster Fest comes at no additional cost, and is just one more perk of the all inclusive packages Coco Plum offers. A typical day during Lobster Fest begins with a snorkeling tour, lead by Rojo. During the tour, he dives for lobsters among the various coral patches ensuring that there is fresh lobster available to feast on throughout the day!

This year the bucket beers saw their return. We found that ladies preferred Lighthouse – a lighter lager – to regular beer. Guests enjoyed ice, cold beers as they feasted on the new and exciting dishes created by our kitchen staff! Lobster stuffed bread, lobster guacamole, lobster deviled eggs, and lobster dip were only SOME of the new dishes we offered this year.

Last year, we played cultural Garifuna music and this year we brought it to life in living color for our guests. Colorfully dressed Garifuna drummers and dancers enthralled the audience as they beat the rhythmic drums of their ancestors, while showing off their fabulous dance moves. Lord Byron came out as our honorary host and DJ this year, and as all our loyal Coco Plum Family knows, he surely brings the party with him wherever he goes! After live Garifuna drumming and dancing, Lord Byron attempted to steal the show with his endless island antics.

Guests had a blast as they limbo’d into the sunset. We also had mosquito bite drinking contests, beer drinking contests, 3 legged races, hula hoop contests and lime & spoon races. After these festivities, our guests enjoyed a few more minutes of dancing before they ate a delectable lobster dinner and ended the night with a round of lively karaoke along with a special guest appearance by the infamous, “Shaggy.”

Seven Reasons Why We are In Love with Coco Plum Island Resort

The fact that guests have an unBELIZEable vacation with us and decide to return year after year fills us with great pride. We are honored to share this guest blog post by Kris Rocha who is already booked for her & her husband’s third trip in March 2018. Happy reading!


7) “Welcome to Coco Plum Island”

Say that in your best Mr. Roarke voice and subconsciously replace “Coco Plum” with “Fantasy,” because that’s what it feels like from the time you first step off the boat until the time you leave. As you arrive, a smiling staff member waits to greet you with cool towelettes, the famous mosquito bite adult drink and your name already committed to memory. From there, your luggage is whisked away to your cabana and you are told “You’re on vacation now! We’ll take care of everything for you from here on out.” If you do offer to help, it is graciously declined. If you’re like me, you might tear up a bit as your mind tries to reconcile what your eyes are seeing and you may wonder “is this real?” Good news – IT IS!


6) Your New Home Sweet Home!

From the bright, Caribbean colored oceanfront cabanas, to the appealing furnishings, to the luxurious bedding (seriously – I asked the staff what brand it was and bought some for my house!), your new vacation home will feel like home. Comfortable, relaxing, well-appointed, thoughtfully designed and just, ahhhh …. Not to mention the awe-inspiring ocean views from your own private veranda.


5) R&R … The Dream is Real

Having never traveled to a tropical locale prior to Coco Plum, my hard-working husband’s dream vacation was/is what he calls, “The Corona Moment Commercial.” The Corona moment is defined by a deserted white sand beach, two chairs, an adult beverage, lapping waves and unreal aqua water (we’ll get to that in a moment). This is precisely what Coco Plum epitomizes! There are no TVs on the island, WIFI is intermittent and there are only 18 cabanas on the 16-acre, adult-only oasis. Say hello to your “Corona Moment.” You deserve it!


4) The Dining Experience Will Ruin Your Favorite Restaurant Forever

Most of the food is freshly caught and locally sourced – much of it is actually grown right on the owner’s farm! The menu consists of a superb mix of Belizean and American foods. The home cooked delights are delicious, varied, bountiful (just ask for more) and completely satisfying, not to mention aesthetically pleasing. A recent text message from new friends of ours made on the island says it best – “We stopped at our favorite Mexican restaurant on the way home, and man has that place gone downhill since we left (5 days ago). They didn’t know our names, they didn’t know what our favorite drinks were, and we even had to order from a menu. To top it all off, they actually made us pay for the meal! Scratch that place off the list …” – Steve. S.


3) Would You Like to Watch the Sunset? Or the Sunrise? Or Both? 

We looooooove sunsets, but in our neighborhood, we’re sun-blocked by buildings and trees. So, we were delighted to find that on Coco Plum Island, you can watch both the sunrise AND the sunset! Oh, for joy! Sometimes the little things aren’t so little.


2) That Aqua Water

The pictures don’t do it justice. In fact, more than half way into our first visit to Coco Plum, I finally said of the view, “This is Photo-shopped. It’s GOT to be Photo-shopped.” You’ve just never seen water so aqua, or sunsets so intense or sand so white. It’s almost literally stunning. Soak it up when you’re there. It’s magic.


1.) Their Slogan 

Coco Plum’s slogan is “You’re only a stranger until you arrive” and they’re not kidding even a little bit. The number one reason my husband and I keep coming back to Coco Plum is because of the island owners and staff. If it’s true that “actions speak louder than words” then you may want to pack some heavy-duty earplugs for your trip, because the sincere care you’ll experience and friendships you’ll form there speak loud and clear: These people truly love their guests. I can’t say it better than the conclusion of my first Trip Advisor review:

You know when you’re getting ready to leave from a vacation and you go to hug the staff goodbye (have you ever hugged staff goodbye?) and you unexpectedly burst into tears because somehow, magically, they’ve buried themselves into your heart and become more than wonderful people who showed you a good time, more than friends – somehow they’ve become your extended family? No? Never happened to you? Me either … until now. Is it the culture? Something in the water? I must give credit to Belize and the hiring practices of Coco Plum for this. They are seriously stellar people. They started as ‘staff’ and ended as family. I don’t know how, but it happened and we felt like we were leaving our family behind and part of our hearts with them.

And so, this is why we’ve already rebooked for our 3rd trip next year. Yes, the island is gorgeous, the food is fantastic and the air is rejuvenating. Yes, you’ll relax and sleep like a baby and get a nice tan and see some amazing things you’ve never seen before. But it’s the people we can’t wait to get back to. It’s the people we love and miss. San Francisco? NO. We left our hearts in Belize on Coco Plum Island Resort.

In conclusion, welcome to Fantasy … Coco Plum Island! It’s even better than what you’ve been dreaming of.

Blessings, fellow traveler,

Tips For The Perfect Honeymoon by Honeyfund

Guest post by: Wendy Dessler

Today’s brides and grooms are mature, educated, and unique couples. In past decades, couples often went from their mother’s home directly into a marriage. We no longer hang up our high school cheerleading uniform and slip into our grandmother’s wedding gown.

Today’s bride and groom are usually in their late 20’s. They have graduated college and begun a career. They have lived on their own for a while and have taken the time to get to know each other before making a life long commitment.

When the modern couple designs a wedding, they know what they want and they work hard and spend a lot of time and money to create it. While their parents may (or may not) help them financially with their wedding, they certainly will contribute.

And this all-important day will be followed by a honeymoon vacation they have dreamed of most of their lives. This is a dream they cherish and want to share with all those they love. Their friends and family are anxious to celebrate with them and send them on their journey as a family in style.

Honeymoon Dreams

To many couples, the honeymoon is the most important part of the wedding plans. This is the first journey they will take as a husband and wife.

This is the beginning of a life together and they want their first memory to be breathtaking. Some couples are forced to omit their dream honeymoon due to the expenses of the wedding. This is how Crowdfunding began.

Friends and family expect to purchase a wedding gift for the new couple. They are often frustrated because it is difficult to buy something they know the couple wants or needs and that several other family members do not purchase the same gift.

Store registries helped in some ways, but they are not easy to set up and they often do not allow enough choice for the guests. Sure, the couple may list a serving spoon that matches their set and cost $50.00, but few guests want to hand a bride a gift box containing a serving spoon. Fortunately, registries have evolved.


The options for weddings are endless. Whether they want a formal cathedral wedding or a destination wedding in a paradise like a Belize beach wedding, it is easily obtainable. If you are dreaming about the perfect Caribbean destination wedding and would like to have it at the most romantic place you can think of, then look no further than TripAdvisor’s most romantic resort in Belize, Coco Plum Island Resort! 

And while the type of wedding is a major factor in the expense, there is no such thing as a low-cost wedding. The challenges of the modern couple having the wedding of their dreams is what gave birth to the latest trend in wedding gifting.

Crowdfunding is a way to set up an easy to use, online service which provides an avenue for guests to contribute to this special event in your life. Plumfund is one of the most popular crowdfunding sites. There is no fee to your guests. You set up your account to show what you would like. Instead of (or along with) traditional store registries, you can set-up items like airline tickets, hotel rooms, dinners at particular places, and activities you would like to do while on your honeymoon. Your guests can purchase all or a portion of a particular item. This allows several guests to pool their resources to provide you with exactly what you want. It is easy and does not cost your guests any fees.

Non-conventional gifts

Because more couples are established before getting married, they do not need the traditional gifts like toasters, dishes, and towels. As young adults, they probably have student loans and other debt that must be paid off. They may be saving for a downpayment on a house, or a remodel.

This couple may opt to create a Honeyfund or Plumfund account to assist them in these milestones instead of asking for a honeymoon.

Your wedding is a once in a lifetime event. You will never again be at this moment in time again. No matter what style wedding the couple wants and no matter where they begin their journey your wedding day and your honeymoon is unique and for you alone.

Allowing friends and family to participate in making these dreams a reality is a precious and bonding experience. The smartest and easiest way to help them and yourself is with crowdfunding.


Experience your dream destination wedding & honeymoon at Belize’s premier private island, Coco Plum Island Resort!

Suggested Itinerary: How to Make the Most of a Week in Belize

From exploring the scenic jungle wildlife to escaping to your very own private island we invite you to experience the Best of Belize in 7 nights / 8 days!

You’ve heard of all the wonderful things Belize has to offer – the second largest barrier reef in the world, white sandy beaches, turquoise-azure water, a pristine tropical jungle, and our warm and friendly people. You’re thinking to yourself: “How can I fit all of these wonderful beach and jungle activities into my one week vacation in Belize?” We’re here to tell you that it is possible to see the Best of Belize in just a week with our newest all inclusive package: the Inland & Private Island Package. And the good news is that this all inclusive package includes everything from local transportation, meals & local alcoholic beverages, accommodations, and exciting tours!


This package is one of the most unique in Belize as it includes accommodations at two of Belize’s premier resorts: Coco Plum Island & Belizean Dreams. We’re not kidding, both resorts were named the #1 and #2 Best Small Hotels in Belize in 2016 and the #1 and #2 Best Hotels for Romance in 2017 by TripAdvisor. Both resorts have also been recognized for superior service throughout Belize and Central America. Apart from that, these resorts are actually sister properties and are owned and managed by Belizeans who are proud to showcase their beautiful country in every way possible – whether that be through charming suites, adrenaline pumping tours, or the service and hospitality of our Belizean staff members.

Here’s a breakdown of all you can see with our 7 Night / 8 Day Inland & Island All Inclusive Package.

Day 1: Arrive in Belize on Monday


Arrive at the Philip Goldson International Airport (BZE) in Belize City. Leave your worries behind as our Inland & Island Package includes ALL local transfers. The adventure begins as you will take a small, puddle jumper flight on Maya Island Air. Enjoy the views from above on your 20-minute flight to Southern Belize. From there, our drivers will take you to Belizean Dreams Resort.

Day 2: Cultural Exploration on Tuesday


Get settled into your beautiful beachfront resort on Tuesday. Lounge in the comfort of your elegant villa and sip a drink at our famous beach tiki bar. Spend the rest of the day exploring the cultural hub of Hopkins Village and enjoy the scenic views and service at Belizean Dreams Resort.

Day 3: Xunantunich Maya Temple on Wednesday


Take a tour of the Xunantunich Maya Ruin. This fascinating pyramid boasts several plazas and a large selection of classic stelae. Those ambitious enough to hike the top of El Castillo, the tallest structure on site, will be rewarded with panoramic views of both Belize and Guatemala.

Day 4: Mayflower Waterfall Hike on Thursday


Located in the Mayflower Bocawina National Park, less than 15 miles from Belizean Dreams Resort, our friendly guides will lead you to a pristine hike through the Belize jungle to the top of this magnificent waterfall. Reward yourself with a swim once you’ve reached the top!

Day 5: Snorkeling & Island Hopping on Friday. Check in at Coco Plum Island Resort.


Your adventure begins as you explore the Belize Barrier Reef. Yes! You can check this off your bucket list as you snorkel among the wide array of fish, rays, turtles, and coral. Spend your first night on your very own private island at Coco Plum.

Day 6: Snorkeling & Island Activities on Saturday


Spend the day exploring our unique private island. Take the kayaks, SUP’s, or hobie cat (all of which is complimentary) as you adventure through the blue waters of the Caribbean Sea. Enjoy a second snorkeling trip to various spots along the Belize Barrier Reef where you are sure to see something different every time!

Day 7: Unwind and Relax on Sunday


Spend your day relaxing on your newfound island home with a tropical drink or Belikin beer in hand. Take in the views from one of our many hammocks or beach beds as you are literally surrounded by different shades of blue.

Day 8: Depart on Saturday

Although we will be sad to see you go, we know you’ll have left Belize with the perfect weeklong itinerary fitting in all the must-see and do attractions in Belize. From hiking 1,000 ft. waterfalls to snorkeling along the Belize Barrier Reef, you will surely have the vacation of a lifetime.

What’s so fun and unique about this package, is that you can get a different set of tours based on what resort you go to first and what day of the week you check-in. Let’s say that upon your arrival on Saturday you check-in at Coco Plum Island Resort for 3 nights. Enjoy snorkeling on Monday and Tuesday and end your Tuesday at Belizean Dreams Resort. On Wednesday travel inland to the Xunantunich Maya temple. On Thursday you can go hiking to the Mayflower Waterfall. Spend the day relaxing and exploring Hopkins on Friday. Then off you go on Saturday back to the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Our Inland and Island Package can be customized to suite your needs so contact us today to book an unforgettable vacation and enjoy the best that Belize has to offer!

Some of the Best Times to Visit Belize: March, April & May

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, 2017 rather than later in June, you can begin to book that summer vacay today! Check out our May Special – don’t wait because availability is already limited!


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 second 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!
