Written by diverk on 08 May, 2003

Serious backpackers go to Utila from all over the world. I met many people from Canada, UK, Italy, Switzerland, Holland, Spain, and Israel. Surprisingly, because it's so close, I met only two people from the US. Because Utila has the cheapest diving courses in…Read More

Written by beachlover1952 on 03 Apr, 2006
