Livingston Travel Guide, Guatemala

Guatemala Travel Guide: Livingston

This Livingston travel guide consists of a brief overview of the area as well as curated short-lists of hostels, blog posts, travel tips and photos. Further information about Livingston is available elsewhere on the site (most site sections are searchable by destination), but this simple travel guide is definitely the best starting point.

Getting to Livingston

Livingston is in the department of Izabal on the east coast of Guatemala, at the terminus of the Río Dulce. Livingston is only (practically) accessible by boat, and is most often entered from Belize or Honduras, or by the lanchas colectivos (group boats) that run regularly from Puerto Barrios and Río Dulce to Livingston. The boat between Puerto Barrios and Livingston leaves several times daily (whenever there are enough passengers) and costs Q35. The boat between Río Dulce and Livingston leaves at 9:30 AM and 2:30 PM, and costs Q125. The trip from (or to) Río Dulce takes about an hour and a half, and includes a brief tour of the river.
