Rio Dulce

Paddle in Paradise

This 4-day full on adventure trip will take you from the Rio Dulce to the Caribbean coast. We pull out all the stops with this one! Swim river canyons, don headlamps to explore uncharted river caves, and soak under hot waterfalls. We will have two full days of sea kayaking down the Rio Dulce through amazing river habitat and pristine nature. This trip brings us to Livingston, Guatemala’s only Garifuna village, where we’ll check out the local fare and vibrant island-like culture. We  end our trip in a riverside jungle bungalow, and head out the next morning to a nearby national park to search out the elusive Manatee. On the way back to Antigua we stop at the Mayan Ruins of Quirigua, renowned for its impressively large stelae. 

  • Kayak the canyon of the Rio Dulce and the biotopo del manati
  • Walk the grounds of the Mayan ruins of Quirigua
  • Sleep in riverside jungle lodges and explore Livingston, Guatemala’s Garifuna village
