Planning a cruise to Utila, Honduras

Hey there!

I am currently in the early stages of planning a long awaited adventure aboard my 34' Columbia.
Right now I'm in the very early stages, and just wanted to ask about the best routes to get from the Florida Keys to Utila, Honduras?
I'm planning on heading out from the Keys around mid-January.
Any information would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Lots of really great areas to stop at along the way. Dry tortugas , head south to Cuba then run along coast for counter current, Isla mujera, you can then run close to the coast for a counter current, lots of stops in Mexico, if frightened of Mexico stop at the resorts or hit the atolls off shore. Belize is not to be missed. Then a overnight sail to utillia.

Re: Planning a cruise to Utila, Honduras

Ive sailed FL-BAHAMAS-JAMAICA-GUANAJA. Good cruising route. Making landfall in Guanaja allows you to make an easy downwind sail to Roatan then Utila. Each island is different and all 3 worth visiting.

A little further south are the much less visited, but awesome, Cayos Cochinos.

Where do you plan to go from Utila?
