Livingston - Guatemala

Livingston lies in a beatiful setting at the mouth of the Rio Dulce on the Caribbean Sea coast of Guatemala and is only accessible by boat. This fascinating town has a unique mix of Guatemalan and Caribbean culture. The displaced Garifuna or black Carib people have brought some wonderful food and Garifuna punta rock to the Guatemalan way of life resulting in a place that can only be described as chilled. The local beaches are not spectacular but there is a beautiful white sand beach along the coast at Playa Blance. Inland you can visit the waterfalls at Las Siete Altares. Security is an issue in the area so make sure you travel with a group. If you have the time take a boat trip up the spectacular Rio Dulce through gorges with steep rock sides overhung by vines and populated by herons and parakeets. Further upriver you will find Golfeto Lake where the Biotopo de Chocon Machacas is located to protect the manatee. The following 7 cruises call at Livingston.
