Welcome to Lívingston


Though the town is most easily and cheaply visited from nearby Puerto Barrios, the approach along the Río Dulce is worth the extra time: so wild it was used as the location for the television series The New Adventures of Tarzan. The river's mist-shrouded cliffs, thick jungle, jade-colored water (which hides numerous manatees) make arriving in this quirky Caribbean town all the more memorable.
