If you have to book any excursions outside of the cruise line, avoid Happy Fish Travel. The tour guide was great but the booking staff at the port were rude, disorganized, and overcharged me when they "converted" the trip costs into the local currency to bill my credit card.

We went to the Amatique Bay Resort. We were pleasantly surprised. The resort had a beach, big pool and, best of all, waterslides. My daughter went down those slides the entire day. The food wasn't great, but we had a great time.

The tour of Livingston was an eye opener to us. We were shocked at the poverty of this city. We enjoyed the boat trip to Livingston, and saw some of the beautiful scenery of the country. Our guide was good, but he was too rigid in his commentary. He did not interact with the tourists well.

Since my wife is disabled and in a wheel chair, we took a bus tour of the area, which was conducted by the local tour directed and enjoyable. Unfortunately we , due to her condition, were unable to go to the other activities offered at this port.

We didn't venture too far from the ship, just shopped at the port and back on the ship..again book an excursion with the cruise ship to feel safe and secure on this island too.

Did the Tour of Two Towns. Enjoyed the stop at the resort. A good way to see what Guatemala is like and remember that Guatemala, like Belize, is a very poor country.
