Overview

Close to the night life yet beautifully situated for a chilled atmosphere, and just a short walk away from town centre. Staying in Pirate's Bay Inn gives you the chance to explore Utila and everything this friendly island has to offer, from the restaurants to the beaches and maybe even to search for Captain Morgan's legendary treasure.

To be completely honest I was a little surprised by your review and mediocre rating of our dive center after stating: “Professional crew, good boat, reasonable price!” You also stated, “Seas were a bit rough though, so I will cut them some slack” If the...More
