The island of Utila in Honduras is known for its underwater activities and buzzy nightlife, with plenty of divers looking to let off some steam after a day spent exploring the magical reefs and seascapes on offer. Here are the best places to get a drink on the popular Honduran island.

Kayaking in the mangroves of Utila, Honduras


Bar, Caribbean

This treetop bar is found at Utila‘s Jade Seahorse restaurant. It’s an amazing spot, with great decor and fantastic drinks. Eat at the restaurant in the daytime and then return later for a sundowner – you won’t regret it.

Skid Row Bar

Bar, Caribbean

You might well have heard of Skid Row before you see it – the staff hand out free vests to people who complete its drinking challenges, and its orange garments are a common sight on the backpacker trail. If you’re looking for fun, you’ll find it here.


Bar, Caribbean

This place is good for watching sports, with large TVs on the outside deck. Try the famous Monkey La La cocktail, play a bit of pool, and soak up the backpacker vibes.

Carlotta's on the Beach

Bar, Caribbean

Right on the public beach, this place is open all day – you can come any time and grab a cold beer or rum drink. It’s a particular favourite with the after-party crowd, who convene here as the sun comes up. If you’re on a big night out in Utila, chances are you’ll end up at Carlotta’s.

Deep-sea diving

La Cueva

Bar, Caribbean

This small bar always seems to be pretty packed – it could be for the food, or perhaps the impromptu open mic sessions that have been known to pop up. You can count on Cueva to be pretty lively no matter what night of the week you want to party.

This Italian-owned spot does the best pizza on the island. It also offers an international menu packed with comfort food. Order something to eat here and you can use the adjoining hotel pool, making it a great place to relax for an afternoon if you don’t fancy the beach.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
