Livingston is a small fishing town located on an island on the Atlantic coast of Guatemala. It has a really chilled out and cool ambiance and there is plenty to do around the area if you decide to stick around for a few days. Most people use Livingston as a hub as a place to sleep before the arduous journey from there to the island of Utila, Honduras. From Livingston, you catch a boat over to the main port of Puerto Barrios and all buses to the Honduras border and ferries to Belize leave from this port. Make sure if you are departing to Belize from here that you go the day before to the Immigration Center in Livingston to stamp out, so that you don't get stuck at the border.

The town of Livingston has a large range of convenience stores and small restaurants; you will find all major amenities along the main strip such as pharmacies and specialty and clothing shops. The choices for hostels in Livingston are few, but you will be a short walk out of the town center and from the ferry dock. Your Livingston hostel staff can fill you in on any information you may need about direct and indirect transport to Utila, kayaking, and other tours around the area, and the popular trip along the river through the jungle between Rio Dulce and Livingston. This particular trip is one not to be missed and departs multiple times a day from the ferry dock.
