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.

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.

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.
