Rio Dulce is a stunning river running from Lago de Izabal to Livingston. Between these two points are lush jungles, tiny villages, towering cliffs, tight waterways, and rare aquatic species.
These languorous waters are frequented by both cruising sailboats and browsing seabirds. Travel among them in a private touring boat, gliding over viridescent water. See birds take flight from limestone cliffs high above the riverbanks.
Where the river opens to Lago de Izabal you’ll see Castillo de San Felipe. This noble ruin was once a Spanish fort, erected to combat piracy. Today, it’s a sober marker of local history and has been shortlisted to become a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
