Laid back, beautiful - and awesome!
Dec 2020
Our family spent a week in Coconut House near Utila Cays and loved it.

Not a location for those looking for the bar hopping & nightlife of Utila Town. About a 40 minute water taxi ride from town will get you to this small, beautiful and laid back locale. Friendly local people will make you feel welcome and good options for a wonderful local meal and a cold beer.

Spent our week relaxing and diving with Utila Cays Diving - great experience. I think it would be a nice day trip from Utila Town, as well.

Amazing sunrises & sunsets, incredible star gazing at night and friendly people. Worth the trip off the beaten path.

Ok diving and not much else
Feb 2020 • Couples
Utila is known as a backpacker diving haven. There are plenty of diving schools to choose from and plenty of spots to explore. Outside of the diving, there really isn't that much to do other than see an iguana farm and visit the chocolate company. There is a nice public beach called Chepeys and another private beach that you must pay for, both situated on the town side of the island. However these would not be enough reason to visit Utila alone. The food options on the island are quite generic with most venues serving Baleadas, mexican fare, pizzas and hamburgers. You can find meals for under 100 Lp if you go to the smaller local restaurants.
Be mindful also that in bad weather you may not be able to get off the island. We were stuck on the island for an additional 3 days. So it pays to look at the forecast a few days ahead.
Having snorkeled at the Hol Chan Reserve in Belize, we had high hopes for our diving at Utila. Maybe we hoped too much or maybe we didn't get to the best sites but we thought the experience was just ok. It felt like there weren't that many fish around, definitely less than what we had observed in Belize.
If you are looking to do diving courses on the cheap, then Utila will suit your needs. However if you are looking for great diving experiences then I would look elsewhere, especially if Utila is your only destination in Honduras.

From the moment youstep off the ferry, you feel the vibe of a little Caribean town that buzzes during the day, a smells of fish fry and local cuisine aroma floating in the air! Island pace is great and enjoyable.

Friendly folk, pristine reef, breathtaking sunrises and sunsets, cheap beer and delicious seafood; who wouldn’t want to be here?!? Have visited twice and will definitely return. Enjoy the calm and quiet of Jewel Cay.

One of our favorite parts of the trip!
Dec 2019 • Couples
My wife and I had heard about traveling to the Utila Cays before arriving on the island. We researched several options of businesses who will take you on the trip. We ended up choosing the travel options Bush's Market provides right next to their grocery store. We had an excellent experience. $60 for a round-trip for two. We had the boat to ourselves. It was a perfect outing for a couple. On the way back we stopped by the fisherman's village on Diamond Cay which was also very cool to see. We highly recommend this option.

Nice side trip while on Utila. Restaurant has good, fresh seafood. Town is quiet and interesting. Stopped on return from dive trip to north west side of island.

Relax on quiet sandy beaches

Hired a boat to Water Cay which was about a 20 minute ride from where we were staying. Packed lunch, drinks, snorkeling gear and hammocks and spent an amazingly morning on the Cay. One side is great for swimming, and the other for snorkeling. Perfect morning spent - definitely recommend when in Utila.

Awesome family get away!

We spent a week renting the Coral house on Utila, which was amazing! Perfect location, white sandy beach, coconut palms, great snorkeling right in front of he house! We dove with Utila Cays, Bogdan one day And Mike the other, both fantastic diving days! Perfectly clear warm water, saw tons of colorful small fish, a couple turtles and eels. Boat dives were really cool, great brief before the dive then locally made cinnamon rolls after diving, mmm.
Highly recommend The personal attention and surreal diving off Utila with Utila Cay diving. They took us to a local restaurant for lunch after diving one day too, really fun. The boat was smaller and we got more personalized attention, I was really glad I wasn’t in a boat with 15 other divers, we saw lots of those go by.

Very friendly place!
Mar 2019 • Couples
The locals on the Cays are very friendly and open. Small islands PACKED with homes and businesses, it's a great place to visit and stroll along the entire length. A great morning or afternoon trip then hit the water around them. Worth the water taxi to get there!
