If you like adventure and want to experience something new and different in the Caribbean then you will love Utila! The crystal clear warm waters, the unhurried atmosphere and the friendly nature of the people will all combine to give you an experience, which you'll never forget Diving in and around Utila has rightly become legendary amongst divers who like to break away from 'production line' diving.
Things tend to move at a more relaxed pace in the Bay Islands and in particular on Utila. Dive boats are rarely crowded and dive sites are strictly limited to one dive boat per buoy. You will never experience the feeling that there are more divers than fishes! Thereefs are packed with life and the corals are in pristine condition. It is not uncommon for divers to play with manta rays, swim with dolphins and gasp with wonder as the biggest fish in the sea, the incredible whale shark, goes by.
Utila has only one main road lined with gingerbread houses in lively pastel colors. The village looks like it came from 1950. Dotted out between the old-school Caribbean looking houses and down the backstreets you will find bars buzzing with life. Utila is known as the divers' island, but it is also famous for its nightlife!

The easiest way to reach Utila is to get yourself to La Ceiba by plane. Then catch the ferry “MV Utila Princess” leaving twice a day from the port of La Ceiba on Mainland Honduras. Connecting flights to La Ceiba is possible from San Pedro Sula or the capital Tegucigalpa. If you want to make it really easy and convenient, you can fly directly to Utila from La Ceiba - this might cost you a little extra, but it can be cheaper than staying a night in La Ceiba. If you do need to spend a night in La Ceiba, the hotel “Rainbow Village” found just around the corner from the airport is very friendly and safe. The hotel and transfer should be booked in advance.
