About us........  My husband Jamie and I came to Belize in 1994 to find a
potential retirement location for the future.  We purchased this beach front lot on
Ambergris Caye shortly after our first trip but didn't start construction until  2002.
Initially all we wanted was a  beach bungalow, but our plans changed as we built
bigger and stronger buildings to stand up to the oceanfront location. We have
evolved into a  small lodging facility, where we have created a vacation
destination for those looking for an intimate and low key property as a base to
explore the wonders of Belize.

Here is a little more insight into what's happening at Cocotal for those of you who
may be interested. We will keep updating as things unfold and as we take on new
projects.   ~ Tanya Graf, owner

Kayaks and Bicycles
There are five kayaks available for our
guests to use - one single and four
tandems. You can paddle out to a buoy  
where you can tie up and snorkel. Please
bring your own equipment if you plan to
use the kayaks to see the reef. We no
longer provide loaner equipment (mask
and snorkel) , but rentals are available
through the dive shops.  
In addition to the kayaks we also
have 12 bicycles with baskets
available for touring the island. The
time to town is about 20 minutes,
10 minutes to a grocery store, with
most of the ride along the beach
front. You can get some exercise
and see the sights at the same time!
Honor Bar
Mara's favorite hang out
At our honor bar you can sign out cold
drinks - Belikin beer, Coke, Sprite and
Fanta. For your convenience, you will
be billed at the end of your stay for
items consumed.

We provide our guests with in-room
bottled water in 5 gallon jugs - let us
know when you are empty and we will
replace it at no charge. You will find a
couple of small bottles in your fridge
that can be refilled to take along
when heading out for activities.

There is a barbecue grill a the bar
ready for you to cook up some fish or
chicken. The bar kitchen is equipped
with plates, utensils and glassware so
you can  enjoy your BBQ meal at our
outside dining table.
Thanks for taking the time to read about what we have been doing at Cocotal.
We will continue to update this page as there are additions and improvements
to our amenities, and to report things of interest. Please check back from time
to time to see what is happening.
Wireless Internet Access
We are connected via a dsl line and have free WiFi available on the property. All
our units now have secure wifi access. We suggest that you bring your own
equipment (laptop, tablet, netbook or internet capable phones) as we do not
have designated equipment for guests. Our office computer is allocated for
business use only.
Our Cabanas

In addition to our main buildings (main
house and beachfront casita), for those
looking for a bit more privacy we have
three garden cabanas located off the
beach in our tropical gardens. These
studio cottages have a full kitchen,
dining area, reading chair and a king bed
with vaulted ceilings of Belizean
hardwoods. They also have an outside
deck with seating, are fully air
conditioned, and have cable TV and
The well equipped kitchen will allow
you to prepare everything from snacks
to full meals - a great way to cut down
on your travel  expenses.  

We think you will agree that these
units are lovely in design and

The cabanas offer a wonderful more
secluded alternative to a hotel room
at comparable prices . Our cabanas
are an exceptional value at $115 US
(low season) and $145 US (high
season) a night.
