Favorite thing: Utila is as one of the bay islands, a favourite Honduran touristic destinations. Just at the end of the Barreer reef and with cheap diving facilities thats maybe not even strange. While money have to grow on your back (a Flemish saying) when you visit the Belizean cayes (or Roatan), this is much more a destination to the budgettravelers....
The island isn't that big and there is actually just one major street with some restaurants. There are some bars, but in the most you'll find only tourists going out. Not really nice I think...
If you want to snorkel you'll have to go to the East end of the island where you'll find the old landing strip. At your right side, behind the bushes, you'll find a small beach just in front of the coral reef. But I've to say it's a painfull adventure to get to the deeper waters where you're able to swim and snorkel like you wish. But its certainly worth it!!!!! It's a paradise...
At the other side, walking west on the main street you'll find some great beaches to swim (just before the lagoon).
Clear dives under the sea
Favorite thing: Diving! I just love the thrill of getting underwater and being as free as a bird. Since you are as close to weightlessness as you will ever be on Earth, you are free to do all sorts of moves under the sea. You can see so many animals and plants it's unreal.
Fondest memory: Discovering what really lies below the sea for the first time!
