Visibility is pretty good most of the time. 15-20m. Occasional windy days or rain reduce it temporarily but it’s not been bad through May.

There is an international airport in Roatan (RTB). Fly there and then take the Utila Dream Ferry over to Utila (1 hour ferry ride). I know Utila has it's own airport but not sure how many flights go there.
