Los Siete Altares
Los Siete Altares information
Lonely Planet review
About 5km (1½-hours' walk) northwest of Lívingston along the shore of Bahía de Amatique, Los Siete Altares is a series of freshwater falls and pools. It's a pleasant goal for a beach walk and is a good place for a picnic and swim.
Follow the shore northward to the river mouth and walk along the beach until it meets the path into the woods (about 30 minutes). Follow this path all the way to the falls. Boat trips go to the Seven Altars but if you're a walker, it's better to go by foot to experience the natural beauty and the Garífuna people along the way. About halfway along, just past the rope bridge is Hotel Salvador Gaviota, serving decent food and ice-cold beers and soft drinks. You can stay out here, too.
