We had a great time diving and enjoying Utila. Utila has great reefs, some
very good wall diving, and lots of diversity. This was our second trip and
we found Gunter's to be very accomodating to us. There is not a lot of
Americans on the island and the Europeans tend not to tip so a tip or two
goes along ways in getting great service. Our party of seven had our own
boat for 8 days of diving. The shop really made us feel like part of the
family. No, we didn't see any whale sharks. <sigh> Though, we saw
many interesting things, IE huge morays, eagle rays with their 8ft tails
intact, lots of little critters. 

We stayed at the Sandy Bay Beach House and saved a ton of money on housing
expenses. We ate at the local restruants and luncherias every day and found
them not only very inexpensive, but good. 

Utila is a very, very good bargin if you stay away from the resorts.
Probally the lowest cost option in this hemisphere. We will be glad to
return in the near future.
