    Great way to get between islands. The ferry was timely and a very smooth ride. We brought extra luggage for an extended stay on Utila which was handled with care.

    The VIP area gives you AC and a free drink. Not alot but it doesn't cost much extra either so we found it a good value.

    My family and I had a great time. We were able to do a tasting and I bought eight chocolate bars then we sat down and while I was going to get one of their drinks, I ended up getting some of the homemade ice cream. I had the chocolate coconut ice cream in a homemade waffle cone. However, the mint chocolate chip was the hit of the group.
    I wish I could have had time to go back, but it’s definitely a place to check out. They take cash and PayPal.
    Lejourn was the staff member who helped us out and he was very helpful and friendly.

    They're not open always, it took me a few times of going up there to find when they were actually open.

    I’ve just returned from the best lunch break ever!

    I spent an hour in Float Utila’s sensory deprivation chamber. With no light or noise to distract your mind, you float in calf-deep, skin-temperature water containing 2,000lbs of Epsom salts.

    It takes your body and mind a few minutes to get accustomed to this new feeling and to trust that the water will support you; but, before long you feel your breathing and heart rate slow.

    After a while (I seriously had no idea how long) I drifted off to sleep. After what I thought was about 20 minutes (an hour in real time), I was roused from my slumber with gentle, soft music.

    I felt as if I was laying on something solid and my senses were a little surprise when I turned my wrist and felt warm water!

    After showering off the salt water I emerged feeling super refreshed - like I had just enjoyed a 10-hour sleep in the world’s most comfortable bed. I felt both relaxed and energised at the same time - still do.

    Although not always open to the public (check their Facebook page for float days), at $50 USD it isn’t the cheapest thing to do on Utila, but it is a sound investment in your mind and body.

    For those looking for a fantastic family vacation home, you can rent the stunning five-bedroom house above Float Utila and float until your heart is content.

    Cay House sleeps 11 comfortably - the master bedroom even has a floating king size bed with a balcony overlooking the Caribbean Sea.

    With hammocks and chairs on the deck and a private dock, the outside is just as stunning as the inside. I loved the spacious well-appointed kitchen and the cosy library jam packed with great books.

    The owner John is just as relaxed as the floatation experience. This was been his home for over 16 years and he makes regular trips back to ensure everything is in perfect order.

    The minimum stay is two-nights and the rent is $320 USD per night - a steal at only $32 USD if there is 10 of you.

    In my opinion it is one of the most luxurious and comfortable houses right in the middle of the bay, close to all the bars, restaurants and dive shops that the beautiful Bay Island of Utila has to offer.

    Vinyasa Flow Yoga at Freedive's dock during sunset is very relaxing, spiritual and edificant experience I've ever had.

    Ruben is a very talented instructor that will be able to adapt his Yoga session to all levels, it doesn't matter if you're new to yoga or an expert, you'll have an excellent experience.

    Wether you want to connect with your inner self, get fitter or improve your flexibility, Yoga with Ruben will definitely help accomplish your personal goals.

    He'll provide you with mats, you just need to bring water and a towel.

    Morning classes are at "The Museum" and afternoon classes at the dock at Free Dive, there's Yoga everyday!! sometimes even more than 2 sessions available on one day, so it's good to Like them and keep posted on Facebook.

    Namaste!

    Jason, our guide was fantastic. The ride itself is beautiful mostly on trail like “roads.” As you wind your way up Pumpkin Hill you reach a point to leave the horses and hike to the lookout point. It is an old approximately 30 inch diameter pipe that has 33 bent rebar steel steps. We climbed it all the way and the view is of the entire island. On a clear day you can see the mountain of the mainland of Honduras. On the way back down we stopped a small humble bare for a couple of cold beers and then returned to the stables along a trail down to the beach and back through the forest. The horses we perfectly trained and if you know how to ride you can gallop along the smoother sections. Someone downgraded the experience because the guide did not speak English. My view as a frequent world traveler is “Give me a break! You are not in your country.” 5 star all the way!

    I did the GoPro (divemaster) and GoEco courses at UDC, and I cannot recommend them both enough! The divemaster program was very well organized and professional and my mentor Anton was awesome! Love ya, buddy. All of the other instructors I worked with were great as well. I honestly feel that the staff at UDC try their best to prepare you for working in the industry and do a damn good job at it. Thank you all so much!

    The GoEco program was also excellent. It’s rare to find someone as perfectly suited to their work as Laura is to running this program. She is knowledgeable, passionate, and just fun to be around. She made every class a joy and taught us all so much. She also organized lots of opportunities for us to volunteer with local conservation agencies. She is an absolute inspiration and I am so glad that I got the chance to take this course with her. Thank you so much, Laura!

    My husband and I enjoyed a lovely couples massage at Sunrise Utila Spa on our honeymoon! This is a great spot to relax and reset. We left feeling totally pampered and refreshed.

    Good service from drivers from Roneey Tours on the shuttle from Tegucigalpa to Leon. The shuttle had originally started with passengers from La Ceiba before reaching us, but the driver asked a passenger to move up front with him so we could sit together when we were picked up. Very thoughtful.

    We joined up with another shuttle from Antigua later so passengers and drivers could be swapped. We crossed the Honduras/Nicaragua border around 9pm. We individually went in to get stamped out of Honduras but our driver collected our passports and border fees for the Nicaragua side. We only had to put our bags through the scanner. Made the crossing a lot easier for us all.

    Felt safe and secure, with exception of a short period with the first driver with some speedy driving and would use the company again. Others in our vehicle had used them multiple times. We were each dropped at our accommodation in Leon around 11pm, an hour earlier than planned. Good all round.

    I just spent a week diving and staying at Paradise Divers. It was a fantastic experience while diving, but I also just a really good time with all the people that I met there. This is the place that you want to go for great diving and good times after diving! If you are going to Utila, dive and stay at Paradise Divers! You will be glad that you did!!!

    It was a great experience, I had the opportunity to build relationships that improved so much my diving experiences, this place has a restaurant, dorms and its a dive center so its very convenient. I also recommend having your dives with intructor Jeneva Bush, she will make your dive safe and fun :)
