We loved Utila & it has a lot going for it, but is it the place we’ll start out when we go where it’s warm? Let’s break down the pros and cons as they apply to us:

So you just got on the island and you’re starving from a long day of travel, what’s good?  A lot of places close for a couple of hours between lunch & dinner, if you’ve arrived at this time (as we did) your choices will be somewhat limited. You might want to pop into Bush’s, Read More

I’m back with a bit more info for you on Utila. A question that comes up with every trip is what to pack so I’ll break it down for you in this post. Utila is an extremely casual island & you need to bring way less than you think!

We’re back from Utila and we LOVED it! Utila isn’t for everyone, no where is, but on Utila there aren’t any other options, it is what it is and we loved it. It’s rustic and simple. There are no big resorts, restaurants are open-air & few places have AC or take credit cards. There, Read More

Hey Everyone! We’re all packed and ready to go on the first flight out of here tomorrow morning. We’ve got some shows downloaded on our iPad for the plane (anyone watching HBO’s Silicon Valley?) and we’ll get a few movies to go along with them tonight. I also bought the latest Jonathon Tropper book,, Read More

Yep, you guessed it, our next adventure is to Utila & it’s less than a month away! Utila is the smallest of the Honduran Bay Islands, also the flattest & the closest to the mainland. It’s also widely known as one the cheapest if not the cheapest place in the world for scuba certifications., Read More

Our recent trip to Saba was absolutely perfect and Juliana’s Hotel had a big part in that! Juliana’s was a great fit for us and was exactly what we were looking for. The grounds are dense with hibiscus and other tropical plants, all frequented by hummingbirds so their logo is fitting.

There are two ways to get to Saba and I have a feeling they’re both an adventure! We took the WinAir flight from St. Maarten which is a quick 15 minute flight. If you’re not into small planes (I’m learning to hate them less) or want to save some dough there are also two, Read More

We just got back from 8 wonderful days on Saba! We booked this trip over 6 months ago and had been counting the down the days leading up to it. Saba far exceeded our expectations and we’ll definitely be back. What a unique island! We loved absolutely everything about it & have a lot, Read More
