The Coco Beach resort was beautiful. We stayed in a 2 bedroom,2 bath condo,
which was brand new or close to it. Full kitchen with stainless appliances
and granite counter tops. Dining room table and chairs to seat 6. The
living room had a flat screen T.V. with american channels on the cable
system and wicker furniture. There was also an internet cable outlet in the
frontroom. The bedroom feature king size beds with very good matresses, I
slept like a baby. The pool area was nice, with 2 pools, 1 shallow pool for
lounging and a deep pool with a small waterslide for more vigorous
activities. The only problem at the resort is the resturant is not yet
finished, but we knew that before going. Food is very expensive on
ambergris caye so plan accordingly. 

Ecologic Divers was GREAT. the people were freidly and accomadating. They
picked me up each morning at the resorts dock and droped me off each
afternoon after diving. They also took care of my gear while I was diving
with them, rinsing and hanging to dry every day after diving. The tip out
to the reef was short but rough, negotiating the channel was always
exciting. You did not want to spend any time on the surface upon enetering
the water because it was rough. On two different days I was the only diver
for the second dive because the other were all sea sick. The barrier reef
diving was good but not great. The reef does not seem to be in as good a
condition as Cozumel, but I saw more Sharks, big grouper, and spotted eagle
rays than i have seen in Cozumel. My wife and I also did a snorkle trip to
Hol-Chan marine park with ecologic and it was great as well. On the snorkle
excursion my wife saw a moray eel, nurse sharks, lobster, spotted eagle ray
and a turtle, all very close. She was absolutly thrilled because she had
never seen any of the above in person before. I did the blue hole trip with
Amigos Del Mar and they were very good also. The blue hole was kind of a
disappointment but the second dive at half moon caye wall was the best dive
of the whole vacation. Lunch on the trip was on the beach at Half Moon
Caye, a beautiful place to spend your surface interval.
The third dive on the trip was also very nice. 

Don't leave anything in your golf cart when you go to town. I went into
town to pick up my gear because I was going to the blue hole the next day
with Amigos Del Mar.I left my empty gear bag in the cart while getting
something to drink and when i came out it was gone. The only replacement I
could find was bright pink, which Shelly at ecologic gave me hell about
every day the rest of the trip.

All in all a great trip. Good diving, Great dive operator, great resort and
wonderfull, friendly people.
