Would like to see a shuttle into town as the berthing spot is a container port. Taxi wanted 25 per person to transport us into town.

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.

This was our surprise favorite port. It was amazing to see the lush vegetation and mountains as we pulled into the port. We took the excursion to Quirigua Archaelogical site and our guide was so informative and passionate about Guatemalan history. We got to see some of the most well preserved monuments of the entire Mayan world. Amazing! The sendoff the people gave us at the end of the day was very special too.

Tour Rio Dulce and Livingston. Great tour but the boat ride to and from across the bay is intense! Very bumpy! Be sure to put the seat cushions down and consider using your life jacket as extra padding or as a back rest.
