Coco View has an excellent dive operation, with spacious, comfortable
boats, dive sites close by and a good house reef. The storage facilities
for gear at the dock are very good. The dive staff was top notch. 

Accomodations are comfortable, although not luxurious, and are well

The food was very good.

The diving was easy, with no currents and the reefs only a short distance
from the dock. Reefs appeared healthy and the walls dramatic. However,
there was a surprising lack of fish life.  We saw very few grouper and did
not see many grunts, jacks, or snapper. We did see a good number of sea
horses, but overall the reefs had a very fished out look about them. 

This is a very nice resort with a good dive operation. Considering the
price includes three squares a day any virtually unlimited diving, it is
one of the best dive bargains anywhere. 

I rate it as a great destination for an new or inexperienced diver, but the
diving is somewhat dull for the more experienced.
