Comments This was our second trip to Laguna Beach during the last decade. It's a very well-run operation, with clean, comfortable accommodations and good food. There were some annoying sand fleas, typical for the Bay Islands, but liberal application of deet kept them in check. Laguna Beach Resort has a fleet of large dive boats that are fast enough to reach anywhere around Utila in a reasonable amount of time. There is unlimited shore diving available.

The reefs are visibly healthy (above average by Caribbean standards), with an abundance of hard and soft corals, encrusting and free-standing sponges, colorful tunicates, etc. There is a good, diverse population of small and mid-size reef fish, southern stingrays, spotted eagle rays, lobsters, crabs, eels and a few large groupers.

Enforced diving restrictions Divemasters were pretty laid back, requiring only that recreational depth limits be observed and that divers respect the reefs.
