I spent last Christmas diving in Utila, and ended up leaving it for Roatan. Utila is small, and appears to be the backpacker destination. While there was good diving, I found myself feeling old and undertatooed and pierced. I ran for Roatan, which is large enough to have a more diverse crowd, although the tourism there is slightly stiffling.

If you're going to Utila to dive, pick your dive shop well. If you're not going to dive, I'd give the island 2-3 days, and move on.

just wondering because I am from there but live up in the States and we have a home on Utila Cay by Water Cay and we are planning on renting it out and was just curious on how many people up here have visited it as I know that alot of Americans are starting to buy up the land down there.

Sorry to hear your visit wasn't too enjoyable .

I know Roatan(Oak Ridge) has become a tourist trap with all of the modern conviences more so than Utila.
