Utila is one of the Bay Islands off the coast of Honduras and is known for its PADI (party and dive in-between) certifications. It is a backpackers paradise as the certifications are relatively cheap and the diving is spectacular. Hands down this was the clearest water we have ever seen. We went down 40ft and had visibility all the way to the top and way further down!
We had fun enjoying the local staple foods, one of our favorites were the Baleados (kind of like a stuffed quesadilla).
Island life was just as you’d expect, we snorkeled just steps from our door step, people never showed up on time, and there were amazing sunsets!
The only downside to Utila Island is that people drive recklessly through the one street town in golf carts, scooters, motorbikes, and quad bikes. Way to kill the serenity of an island getaway Utila! Luckily it’s easy to escape the small downtown and get to nice beaches and forests in just minutes. We took advantage of the quiet mornings to catch up on our exercises.
