  • Don't Miss The Pizza

    Utila Restaurants

    There is always a mix of 3 day tourists, 3 month tourists and expats hanging out here. The 2 big screen TVs make watching the Soccer World Cup, Rugby World Cup or the Superbowl a fun experience. There's also a pool table and dart board. Pool tournament nights get entertaining. It's a laid back place with good food, good prices and great people from...

  • Breakfast is a must at this restaurant!

    Utila Restaurants

    I had a tradtional honduran breakfast earlier this year and it was possibly the best breakfast I've ever had during my vacations in Utila. They offer REAL fruit juices and very good coffee. Finding this place is tricky because you cant see the restaurant sign from the Main Street. Utila is very small, so just ask for directions. Honduran Breakfast...

    Utila Things to Do

    I visited several dive shops before choosing Alton’s for an Advanced Open Water course. I was impressed with the staff’s professionalism and the condition of the scuba gear and boats. Those initial impressions all proved out; instructors were professional (some more than others); no equipment problems; new, first-rate boats.The only caveat is that...

  • ATMs in Utila - always get a receipt

    Isla de Utila Warnings and Dangers

    There are only two ATMs on Utila Island. Both are located on the Main Street, one is at the Banco Atlantida and the other is yards away near to the pharmacy. Both machines accept a wide variety of cards. Make sure that you always go for the option that gives you a receipt. At busy times it is possible for the ATMs to run out of money. This happened...

    Isla de Utila What to Pack

    If you visit Utila then there is a good likelihood that you will come across the sand flies. They are particulArly active both at dawn and dusk. I would recommend that you pack a insect repellent with a high DEET content and also something to soothe any bites. Whilst there are many ointments containing antihistamine or mild hydrocortisone, I...

    Roatán Town Things to Do

    Our trip to Roatan Honduras was made complete one rainy day my husband read about the Roatan Rum Company online. Bored and restless from three long rain filled days we decided to hire a taxi from our resort, Infinity Bay and venture out, OMG we were so glad we did, first of all the staff were so friendly and welcoming not to mention excited to...

  • For a good time by the beach

    Roatán Town Restaurants

    It's a great spot by a beautiful beach, where you can enjoy the wonderful weather and scenery. They serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner with some daily entertainment at night. The menu consists of local seafood dishes, hamburgers, salads, steaks, chickens, etc. Everyone can find something they like. Fresh seafood items were always good. For drinks,...

  • A lovley home for some lucky person

    Flowers Bay Favorites

    We were hoping that this would be our new home in Roatan. This picture was taken before the remodeling and new paint was done. We decided that it was not right for us as it was not on a sandy beach so we purchased a home in Sandy Bay.The house sits on the south-west part of the island on the Iron shore and has a great price. The land is very nice...

  • Iron Shore

    Flowers Bay Warnings and Dangers

    This area is known as the Iron Shore due to the coast line being made of Lave rock.Be careful while walking or swimming around the area as the rocks are very very sharp. During the high tides you will find a hole or two filled in with sea water which makes for a natural "hot tub".

  • Multi Colors

    Flowers Bay Things to Do

    This is one of the nicest homes we had seen on the island. It is sort of a landmark for the point in Flowers Bay. Check out for details about renting this place for a week or two. The views are beautiful in the morning.


Cayos Cochinos

  • Beach action near the restaurant island

    Cayos Cochinos Things to Do

    The island crowded with restaurant shacks was naturally also crowded with boats on the beach. However, we walked the beach to a sandbar for some swimming. One side of the island had silky smooth sand, but the other was a rough broken white coral beach. Later, we picked up another couple, and we also stopped briefly at another island before...

  • Dining at Cayos Cochinos

    Cayos Cochinos Restaurants

    Maybe there are alternative menus at other beach shack restaurants, but our boatman took us to a simple place where the menu was limited to a very tasty fried fish, like red snapper, alongside a generous portion of fried plantains and seasoned fried rice. Coca Cola in the old fashioned heavy glass bottles, rather than plastic bottles, was served,...

  • Boating Past Minor Islands

    Cayos Cochinos Things to Do

    There are a number of sandbars and minor islands which are home to fisherman during good weather. Some of these are host to restaurant and even lodging facilities.


Isla de Guanaja

    by TinKan Updated Jan 16, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are 2 ways to get here.
    One is to take a small plane from the mainland or from Roatan or take a boat.

    The plane ride is cool as you get a very good view of the island as you land.

  • Carambola Botanical Garden

    Sandy Bay Things to Do

    This is a small garden with some tropical trees like banana, teak etc... They also have 2 trails, a jungle trail which can be covered in 10 minutes, and a mountain trail which is a bit harder, but which gives great views over the shore (including Anthony's Key). Overall, I really recommend a visit if you are really enthousiastic about flowers and...

  • Shore Diving

    Antoneys Cay Off The Beaten Path

    Most people do not know that AKR has a very good shore dive spot. On the back of the key you will find a small shack that houses all the things you need to do a shore dive minus the mask, fins and snorkle.The shore dive here is called The Garden and it is a very nice site. It is also the same site that AKR does the dolphin dive at but is accessed...
