This is a beautiful resort, and worth it if you can afford it - we stretched our budget to stay here. It is located across a toll bridge (10USD both ways) just north of San Pedro on Ambergris Caye. We rented a golf cart for...More

Thanks for choosing Coco Beach Resort to celebrate your 20th anniversary! Our staff enjoyed reading your review at this week's staff meeting. We look forward to hosting you, along with your family this time, in the future.
We spent glorious seven days at the Coco Beach Resort celebrating our anniversary. The experience begins with a complementary rum punch and then you are escorted to your room. In our case, we stayed in a two bedroom casita, which had a fully stocked kitchen...More

Food in town is most reasonable, the menu tends to be in BZ dollars which is 50/ to our dollar. Visa is the preferred card there. Bel kin beer seems to be their beer about $3. Not sure how many other beer choices. Wine is about $7. Best to buy your liquor duty free at airport after you get your bags. Buying beer in town liquor store fairly cheap. In town is a grocery superstore is best to pick up food. I think most rooms have kitchen and refrigerator. Coco cafe is good for breakfast reasonable price, pool bar ok too. Cocoblanco is high priced, many people ate elsewhere.

The true attraction of Ambergris Caye is the Belize Barrier Reef. It is important to us that our guests get the full scoop on our beaches before arrival. Belize’s coastline is home to 191 miles of the magnificent Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System, the largest reef in the northern hemisphere. While vacationing at Coco Beach Resort on Ambergris Caye, you are within easy access to some of the most spectacular snorkelling and diving in this region. The proximity and location of the coral reef is in direct correlation to the shoreline on the island and greatly impacts the resulting beach.
A barrier reef grows very close to the surface and naturally protects the adjacent shoreline from big waves, as the reef acts as a breakwater. Waves from the open sea break over the reef and loose energy, instead of crashing into the shore. The result at our beach is calm, shallow water, with a deeper channel closer to the reef.
Often present in patches in this shallow water is a marine plant called turtle grass. The flat grass-like leaves can grow up to two-feet tall, but more typically in our area are about 6-10 inches long. Aptly named, it provides an essential food source to sea turtles and other high-profile critters like manatees, conch and lobsters. Just as importantly, this seagrass holds the sand in place so that it does not settle over the coral, which would block sunlight and damage the coral colonies. Many fish species also use the grass beds as nurseries, hiding among the protective leaves. This somewhat understated ecosystem is surprisingly diverse and productive, with some patience and a keen eye you can see quite a lot while snorkeling around it.
While we do not have the traditional walk-in beaches of other tropical destinations, the Belize Barrier Reef offers unlimited adventure. Calm, shallow waters and magnificent views of turquoise waves on the reef set the perfect backdrop for paradise. Come and experience it for yourself!
