Livingston Overview

I have just returned from a six day stay in Livingston. I did some work at Ak'Tenamit a boarding high school for Maya and Garifuna kids just up the Rio Dulce. It is a terrific program. You must visit and the students will welcome you with open arms. Eat at Buga Mama, the student run restaurant in Livingston. The nicest hotel is the Villa Caribe, with a beautiful pool, air conditioned rooms, wifi and hot water. Dugu Bar just outside hotel entrance has live music About $100 per night and well worth it. Manfred the manager can arrange excursions, boats, and other needs. Livingston has a mix of Maya, Garifuna and Ladino residents that is unique to Guatemala. Can only be reached by boat from Puerto Barrios or Rio Dulce Guatemala or from Punta Gorda, Belize.
