Scuba Diving and Snorkeling
Probably the most popular form of recreation with foreign visitors to Honduras, in terms of absolute numbers, is scuba diving and snorkeling on the Bay Island reef system. The diving around the three main islands and countless cays is unquestionably world-class, rated by some as the finest in the western hemisphere.
Another advantage to diving the Bay Islands is the extremely low cost of certification courses and dive packages. Utila in particular has become a mecca for budget travelers looking for inexpensive explorations of the underwater world.
