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

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.

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.
