Everyone knows that Utila is an amazing place to dive, to see whale sharks and dolphins, and to party!
What most people don't know, or what most people don't experience are the amazing things on land. Utila has a varied landscape, with fresh water caves, brackish lagoons, and a hill called Pumpkin Hill. Oh, and a 'wanna be' hill called Stuart Hill.
These photos were taking after hiking from Utila town over to the Northside and climbing up Pumpkin Hill. The hike over takes about an hour, and it's a pleasant walk on a road, which turns to dirt, which is spattered with some cliff rock, and mud (if it has rained recently).
From there you can see from the north to the south of the island for some amazing views of the island.
This is the view back to town. The majority of Utila Island is savanna or marshy, and wet most of the year. Wet also equates to green green green.
After living here for 15 years, it's always shocking to me to go visit anywhere in North America and notice the lack of green... there are often lots of shades of brown and the greys of cement.
I prefer green.
