  • Rio Dulce to Livingston River is great and do absolutely; The most beautiful part is the "canyon" before Livingston - it takes about 2 hours collective boat with a coffee break

  • The city is ugly, but the Lake and the activities you can do are fantastic. I would recommend getting a boat and go up to Livingstone town very pretty, but what's really nice is the drive to get there!

  • The boat trip on the Rio Dulce after Livingston is highly recommended. Scenic an experience. By Livingston not too much to expect, but it's nice to have seen it. Location Itzobal and Rio Dulce are worth a trip.
