This tour’s a winner for water babies. First of all, you’ll hop on a boat which will whizz you along the shoreline. You’ll pass local fishermen, as well as lots of birds, including pelicans, as you get closer to the Posada El Delfin hotel. Here, you’ll be given a natural fruit energy drink so you can fuel up for kayaking along the Dulce River. Before you set off, you’ll visit the Dulce River Canyon. Crane your neck up at its 300-feet-high walls, smothered in tropical greenery – it’s easy to see why the original Tarzan movie was filmed here. Plus, you’ll hear all about this place’s pirate-chequered history. Once you reach the Tatin River, you’ll board your kayak. Paddle past the towering palms and mahogany trees that line its edge. Your destination is Livingston village, which was formed in 1735 by a group of Haitians. You’ll tuck into a well-deserved lunch here and, once you’ve eaten, you’ll be taken on a tour of the village.
On this tour, you’ll get to experience two of Guatemala’s best natural settings – the ocean and the rainforest. You’ll get things started by boarding a boat in the port, and setting off on a 20-minute journey complete with picture-perfect views of the Caribbean Sea. You’ll dock in the rainforest, at the start of a path which winds through it. Then as you complete your 20-minute hike through the wildlife-filled greenery, your guide will tell you all about the rainforest, including information on the different types of mangrove that you’ll find. Your walk ends at an Instagram-friendly viewing point, which looks out over a bay. You’ll have time to take some pictures before you make your way back to the boat, to sail back to port.
On this tour, you’ll travel to the San Felipe fortress in style – along the River Dulce. The bus will whisk you away from the port, to the banks of the river. There, you’ll board a panga-style boat – the type used by fishermen – and cast off down the river. As you float along, you’ll be able to take in the scenery along the banks, which are lined with tropical greenery. Next, you’ll dock at the fortress, which is set at the river’s narrowest point. Built in 1644 by the Spanish, this place protected the area from attacks – you’ll hear all about its pirate-peppered history and get to see some original cannons. Once you’ve had your fill, you’ll get back on your boat and sail to a restaurant. Here, you’ll have a snack of sandwiches and fruit before you’re driven back to port.
