Comments Decided to try a different resort on Utila after diving there for the last 10 years. Utopia Village is a beautiful well managed resort. The valet diving service was excellent. They took great care in maintaining our gear. The resort is situated on a sandy beach with lots of palm trees. The accommodations are clean, spacious and air conditioned. The meals were normally in a beautiful dining room over looking the water. A few times we ate at the bar or in the pool. That's right in the pool; tables were set in the shallow end of the pool and we ate while seated in the water. A great way to beat the heat. The food was excellent as was the service. The diving operation is very well run with dive masters who were continually finding little creatures as well as schools of fish. The diving generally is recovering from over fishing so fish were sparse at a few sites. The main reason I came to Utila in April was to swim with Whale Sharks and swim with them we did on many occasions. The boat captain maintained the proper procedures when around the whale sharks and were good in finding them. This was one of the best trips all around that I have been able to go on. I would not hesitate to return.
