Utila Overview

Utila is an island off the coast of Northern Honduras. This small island is home to about 3,000 locals and more than a dozen diving shops. Even though prices have escalated over the past few years, this backpacker’s paradise provides an excellent value for the SCUBA enthusiast. Deals include Open Water or Advanced Water certifications at about $250, 10-dive fun dive packages from $230 (basic backpacker’s dorm room and equipment included), $2 beers and $5 dinners. (Feb, 2011)

The island is accessible by small airplane and daily ferry boat from La Cieba, Honduras. There are a couple of nice beaches on the island and the water is crystal clear. This is a great place to relax, unwind and just “shut-up and dive!”
