This was our third trip to Utila, staying at the Utila Lodge Resort.  The
lodge, attention to detail by the owners and staff is impeccable.  Truely a
place to get away. Screened in porches with hammocks in all rooms (8
rooms). Built over the water and we had constant breeze so no problem with
no-seums or other bugs. Food was great.  Willie, boat captain was great as
always. Dive Master takes care of all gear for the week after initial set
up.  The previous two years, (both trips taken in May) we had the
priviledge of snorkeling with whale sharks. This year, the water was too
choppy to find them. Although the coral was in great shape, I found fewer
fish this year. Some of the islander's make their living fishing, and it
shows. They've fished out all the sharks. Saw many queen angels though, and
some of all the usual Caribbean fish...just fewer of them. Plentiful macro
stuff. Vis was always good. All of the dive operations on the island are
trying to help the islanders understand that overfishing will hurt their
economy, but meanwhile, the fishing continues. For the price of an
all-inclusive, including 17 dives, it's a great deal. They have Nitrox and
you can dive all 17 dives for flat rate of $100.  I would probably go back,
but I'll skip a few years.
