A Little Bit of the Caribbean in Guatemala
Guatemala Trip Journal
At the end of the river is Livingston, a small town only reachable by boat that lies along the Caribbean Sea and the Rio Dulce. This was such an interesting part of Guatemala to visit, as many of the people who live there are Garifuna people, descendents of African and mestizo Guatemalans who speak Spanish, their own Garifuna language, and English. Here is where I had my most favorite meal of the trip: Tapado: A yummy seafood soup made from coconut milk, curry, seafood and plantains.
From Livingston you can take boats to some beautiful beaches, but we didn’t have the time. You can get to Belize from here too!
