We were greeted by a very nice woman called Abbie as we were walking to our hotel. She showed us much better hotels for cheaper and bought us a beer and gave us all the information about the dive packages. I had really high expectations and was glad I'd found Parrots. That all changed when I dived. Firstly, gearing up... More

From the first time I stopped in to inquire about getting my open water certification, they were professional, detailed and attentive. This dive shop was recommended to me, but there are many on the island, so I wanted to research before I decided. When I walked into the office area, it had a very fun atmosphere, but when I sat...

Being new to scuba diving, I was a bit nervous and didn't know what to expect when taking my open water dive PADI. I couldn't have asked for a more safe, experienced, and fun shop to dive with on Utila!! The instructors were knowledgeable and patient, explaining all the ins and outs of breathing and swimming underwater. In no time... More

What a wonderful experience completing my Dive Master training at this place! We were a particularly excellent group of trainees with an even better training staff. I can't wait to get back to Parrots to see all the incredible people that have been taking care of me for years! I have come to think of this place as a second... More

Travelling through central america I had not only heard of Utila but of Parrots Dive Center from several fellow travellers. And all were raving about this place. I met Tatiana at the ferry when we arrived on the island and instantly fell in love with that cute, heartwarming, little woman. And she wasn't the only one that welcomed us in,... More

At first when you look for a place to dive in Utila you look for reviews on the internet. There are always good and bad reviews, but this is like in any place that is being reviewed. The second thing you would probably do is walk around the extremly HOT island, go into several dive shops for prices and than... More

Hopefully the divermaster team was quite nice which made the experience ok but I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone The personal is kinda rude, then they wont tell you that the 'Hotel' is subjected to gouvernment taxes (which I understand but I would rather know it before, they do have a small sign covered by books that they will...

We are very sorry about your negative experience at our hostel. We never hide the fact that we pay Honduran government regulated taxes for both diving and hotel activities. It is part of the paperwork that all of our customers complete prior to participating in any of these activities. On your first visit you did sign our ‘terms and conditions... More
