Getting to Utila was not without problems. None of our, and most of our
co-travellers, luggage arrived to the island with us on Atlantic Air.
Lucciano, one of the managers of the resort, assured us that the luggage
would be delivered next day (and it actually was), and it should not stop
us from diving next morning. All of us were outfitted with almost brand new
gear from the dive shop. No charge! The resort is run like a good oiled
machine by Lucciano and his wife Romina. Everything is clean, the food is
good, kitchen staff does their best to accomodate people's allergies and
food preferences. The managers are seeking comments from guests and listen
to them. 
Diving: There are 3 dives a day, plus 2 night dives a week. The whale shark
"hunt" is done either before the first dive of the day, or during
the dive interval. We had one very brief sighting. Only 8 people were
allowed to be in the water with shark. Wagner, our boat captain, did his
best to find more sharks for us, but the sharks did not cooperate.
Beautiful reefs with a lot of small stuff, some lobsters, crabs, tons of
angelfish, etc. 
Overall a very nice place with good diving, but bring a lot of DEET as bugs
are relentless.
