Founded in 1982, Coco View developed a reputation as the place to go for no-hassle diving and a laid-back lifestyle. The resort has been under new ownership for the last two years, but never fear — its spirit is unchanged. You can still shore dive whenever the mood hits you, ride a dive boat to one of Roatan's best dives, eat more than you should have at the buffet or simply sit and enjoy the ocean view. More than that, though, is the instant camaraderie that flourishes here every week. People arriving from all over the world become good buddies within minutes and lifelong friends in a matter of days. Maybe it's something in the water.
The Clubhouse is the social center of the resort, with dining, the bar, games and sitting areas. To either side are over-the-water bungalows and cabanas and the water's-edge oceanfront rooms.

A lot of thought has gone into making the diving as convenient as possible at Coco View, with minimal carrying or handling of your gear. Four specially outfitted 50-foot boats carry guests to dive sites in comfort. Special excursions include diving with dolphins and shark diving at Cara a Cara. The Coco View shore dives are a perennial favorite, with access to two walls, a natural channel and the wreck of the 140-foot Prince Albert, which is accessible 24 hours a day.
