Outdoor Activities

Bahía Azul. A short hike or boat ride (5 km [3 miles]) north of Livingston takes you to a gorgeous little jungle river called Siete Altares, a series of deep pools that are ideal for swimming. The name translates as "Seven Altars," the altars of which are seven lovely waterfalls. Arrange for a guided tour with the friendly folks at Bahía Azul or Happy Fish (7947–0303). A walking tour costs about Q120, and usually takes in a stroll through Livingston; a bag lunch is included. Other tours replace the hike with a boat ride and cost about double. The one-way walk takes about 90 minutes, but is a fantastic way to experience nature here. Lívingston, Izabal. 7947–0151.
