    Roatan-Utila direct

    by Diverdan28 Written Dec 5, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Many of the tour books talk about the weekly service betwen Roatan and Utila. But during my April 2009 vacation, this had been increased to daily or near daily. The regular operator had some boat problem but managed to arrange a temporary service on a private boat. Excellent service and a pleasant ride. Don't waste time by going bacl to la ceiba to transit.

    Airstrip is scary!

    If you have a fear of flying, take the boat ferry to Utila. The plane we flew on was obviously Russian-built, and the "runway" was a cleared strip of gravel on a peninsula (so if the pilot missed, you were in the ocean). Almost everything is walkable, so that is great. You will want luggage that is easy to carry or drag.

    Air or ship, the only way

    by TinKan Written Jan 17, 2004

    The Tropical Ferry operates Monday through Friday, leaving from La Ceiba's municipal dock located east of La Ceiba. The trip takes only one hour on this fast motor vessel.
    Arrival in Utila is at the municipal dock, conveniently located in the central area of east harbor.

    Air service is available daily via Sosa Airlines. Sunday schedules are limited, so it is best to plan on arriving and departing during the week. There are some charter air services available from both La Ceiba and Roatan that can help you get in or out of Utila.

    La ceiba harbour

    Take the ferry from La ceiba on the mainland.
    There is 2 boats a day i think.
    Take a taxi from the bus terminal or airport.
    Its quite a long walk to the dock.
