Utila is part of the Great Mayan Barrier Reef (aka. the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System), a healthy and vibrant coral reef that is the 2nd largest reef in the world after the Australian Great Barrier Reef. Divers from around the world come here to be certified, dive the reefs and wrecks, and swim with whale sharks.
All you have to do is walk out the dock
and you are at the reef!
