    Utila Cays

Utila is so many things at once: a natural paradise, a magnet for divers, an underwater stage to the second largest coral reef in the world, a green wilderness with mangroves, wetlands and tropical savannas, an international school for divers, a scientific research station and the home of the black iguana or swamper, found only to this island.
Most of it is uninhabited - most of the 3,000 Utilans live in the southwest corner, at East Harbor.
It is one of the safest and cheapest places in the world for you to get PADI scuba licenses for all levels. This is why people come from all over to get certified in a luxury playground for dive schools: the Mesoamerican Reef.
The Iguana Research and Breeding Station and the richness of its nature have made Utila a hot spot for Caribbean wildlife conservation.
On Utila, you can dive or snorkel, go sailing, just relax, have fun or go explore nature – all without crowds.
