Today, travel between the Bay Islands of Honduras is somewhat easy. When I first came to Honduras, twenty-six years ago, there was no regular service between the islands. If you wanted to travel from one island to another, you would have to come back to La Ceiba.
All about Utila
After seven months of not seeing tourist, I was ecstatic this week when I say a group of four backpackers in Honduras. You see, I live in the Cangrejal River Valley, arguably the adventure and nature tourism Hub in Honduras. The area is just outside of La Ceiba, and just a short ferry ride from the Bay Islands of Utila and Roatan.
Let us face it, after two months of lock-down in most of the World, we are all looking forward to escaping on an idyllic vacation. I can imagine few places as idyllic as the Bay Islands of Honduras. But are the Bay Islands of Honduras Covid-19 free? Are they safe to visit? Are they open for business again?
The top 5 destinations in Honduras are the following. Copan Ruinas, Roatan, Utila, Atlantida and Lake Yojoa. They are the five brightest shining stars in Honduras. I hope that you can fit most of them in your travel itinerary and get to discover Honduras. Happy travels!
To my knowledge, the oldest island house in Utila is where Munchies, the restaurant is in. This is just west of the Municipal dock. This house was once in the “Cays” and the owners brought it with them to Utila Town many years ago. The new owners renovated it a few years ago, and one of the main beams in the home had the date of 1864 written on it.
One of the greatest bars and restaurants in Utila has ceased to exist. As a matter of fact, it pretty much died when its founder, Lee Odelein passed away a few months ago. Rehab Bar came to be under the direction of Lee. He was a friendly, charismatic fellow who knew how to run a restaurant bar.
