Utila is a tiny island in the Western Caribbean, part of the Republic of Honduras. It is a mixed community established in the 1800s by Caymans, outlaws and former slaves. We arrive as travelers and explore through narrow streets, rocky harbors and underwater. The sea is the great divide which filters the outer world’s influence on this unique place, as well as the provider for locals, immigrants and divers. For them it is paradise. For us the island is a microcosmos through which we meet the tension between foreign and local, big cities and small towns, development and environment.
