Comments All good things. Cobalt Coast is small, but clean and comfortable. Rooms are quite large. The hotel host was very welcoming and made you feel at home, but the food wasn't the greatest. I got the meal plan at $60/day but a la carte would have saved money. Not bad food, just not the greatest. The diving was great and well worth the trip. Divetech is a really good little operation and takes care of its clients. My air pressure gauge bit the dust before the first dive and they provided another console for me to use for my 3 day trip at no cost. Wanted to make sure I had a good time. They cater to technical divers and are rebreather friendly. The water was warm and clear; the North Wall was breathtaking. A few lionfish, and they are teaching their groupers to eat them. Nothing bad to report; their dives are guided, but you can do your own thing if you honor their limits. Good for beginners because the diving is easy (no currents). Good for advanced because you can go off on your own if you want. I'd go back in a heartbeat.
