UDC was a fun and comfortable place for our 3 teens to earn their PADI certification - combining the warm, clear waters of Utila with a friendly, well-run business. They invited us to call their facility home-base (Thx Rusty) - relaxing in their hammock, swimming, kayaking, deck-lounging, and refueling at their bar and cafe (love the banana bread). The staff members went to notable effort to ensure out kids were thoroughly educated and practiced (Thx Sarah and Ellie). My husband and I felt safe exploring the island while the kids were "in class". . Each of our family dives were rich in sea life (Thx Suzanne and Mark). As a bonus, we frolicked with a pod of dolphins in the open water (Thx Erol). This perfect experience was wrapped up with a fairly-priced DVD of the kids' first dive (Thx Robbie). Be sure to ask for a discount at The Mango Inn, a well-run motel with a refreshing pool and good restaurant.
