Livingston is a town at the mouth of the Río Dulce at the Bahia de Amatique, which enters the Gulf of Honduras then the Caribbean Sea. This was Guatemala’s main port, until Puerto Barrios was built 19 km to the SE. The 74 km Caribbean coast of Guatemala is sandwiched between Belize and Honduras. Livingston is noted for its unusual mix of Garífuna, Afro-Caribbean, Maya and Ladino people and culture. The languages spoken in Livingston including Spanish, Garifuna language, Mayan Q'eqchi', and English. In recent decades Livingston has developed a large tourist industry.

The local population is largely Garifuna, the descendants of slaves whose stricken ship washed up on these shores. During the Guatemalan civil war (1960-1996), indigenous Quiche Mayans moved to the area in large numbers to escape the violence. The local Garifuna are known for their drumming and dancing, so hopefully you can witness a Garifuna Festival. Access to Livingston is only by boat, so no surprise that the waterfront is busy and all streets run downhill to the coconut-fringed water's edge of the river and bay. Wander around the streets and shops, and do try the local dish tapado, a seafood stew in a coconut broth.

Around an hour’s walk along the beach from town are the waterfalls known as Los Siete Altares. Here you can swim in the rockpools and visit the cultural centre which tells the story of the Garifuna and their culture. There are local tours: to Playa Blanca, though the beach will not necessarily be free of floating rubbish; and to the San Felipe Fortress aside Lake Izabal, the largest lake in Guatemala, about 35 km upriver from Livingston. Ask about visiting the Hot Waterfall where you can soak under the hot picturesque falls. Interestingly, in 1935, the film The New Adventures of Tarzan was filmed here and at other sites in the country.
