Been to Coco View several times and will return. Easy check in/check out.
They handle getting return tickets/seat assignment for you. Settling
accounts was easy, as usual.  Strange week for us, one of the boats was out
for repairs and had to use a boat from Fantasy Island, which made you
appreciate the CoCo View boats even more. Julian, the DM, was thorough and
very friendly; dives were well thought out and easy. Morning boat dives
usually one hour, the drop off dive on the way in is yours to plan. The
shore diving is yours to plan; they do not babysit you, which is fine with
me.  You can dive 24/7. All the dive staff were very helpful/friendly.
Nitrox is a definite plus and the price was right. The food continues to
improve in variety and quality. Noone leaves hungry. Arranged the trip late
and was assigned to one of the beach houses, which could have been
outstanding.  Beach house #5 would be great for two couples or a family
with kids (2 bedrooms, full kitchen, big living room and big screened
porch, but it had no A/C, which made it miserable when I was there
(hot/humid). Not enough breeze.  But enough of that.  You will not see the
big fish, but the coral life seems to be just fine and there are lots of
the small critters to see. Diving Newman's and CoCo View wall are great
fun, easy dives.  The wreck in the back yard is such an easy dive and you
will see different kinds of fish; it's also grown over with all kinds of
life. The "no see ums" will get you if you do not have bug
repellant; "deet" works well. If you like, they can arrange
different tours/dolphin/shark dives, etc.  They work very hard to please. 
Other than diving, there is not much to do unless you want to go into town
and that can be arranged as well as a night on the town.  But if you are on
