The Ultimate Castaway Experience: Embrace Island Life in Belize

Actor Tom Hanks, cast as the FedEx executive in the award-winning movie Castaway, was required to grow a beard, tone his body, and get up close and personal with a volleyball he named Wilson during the two-plus hour production that inspired movie goers in 2001. As the sole survivor of a plane crash, he was stranded on a tropical island and forced to use the packages that washed on shore to survive his odyssey.

If an image of Tom Hanks surviving time alone on that island is the first thing you think of when someone mentions an island getaway, erase this from your memory and realign your thoughts! Being a castaway doesn’t mean you’ll have to converse with a volleyball for companionship, nor will meals you enjoy come from FedEx packages that float onshore. Instead, guests embrace the essence of island life at Coco Plum Island Resort, the adults-only epicenter of off-grid luxury.

Yes, you can grow a beard if you like…

…but if your castaway experience is too short to do that, why not spend your time having fun on this Belize island? Coco Plum amenities include a pool, opportunities to scuba dive at the spectacular Belize Barrier Reef, go snorkeling, fishing, and birding, and you can test your prowess by borrowing the guest-exclusive Hobie Cat Wave, kayaks, and stand-up paddleboards. Make this an effortless experience by picking the All-Inclusive Snorkel Package.

“Coco Plum allowed me to disconnect from the noise of the world and embark on a journey into a place of exquisite beauty, tranquility and adventure. This island is truly reserved for those with discriminating taste and a desire to rediscover and reconnect with Mother Nature,” enthused one guest who found her Coco Plum experience to be more than she expected. You are likely to feel the same way!
