Comments  
the good: staff and owners were good, friendly, helpful(esp., Lucy); diving
was about AVERAGE and better than  Cozumel '09; costs were low -- $6/ nite
if no crowds, $25 / tank if greater than 10 dives; local restruants were $4
to $7 for all meals;  meals at La Ceiba were less; new divers were
friendly;  good budget operations.

the bad: taxi cab drivers were liars and usually overcharged greatly even
if you spoke a little spanish; esp. bad was the large fat man w/ orange
tee-shirt who agreed to 150 lempiras than demanded 200 L at the end; ferry
from La Ceiba to Utila was $23;  the no-see-ums or sand flies were were bad
at hotel Kayla;  all divers got bit unless the wind was blowing hard; 98%
DEET did not work; baby oil worked 90-99% of the time. bldgs. were mostly
shabby.
