Details of Casa De La Iguana, Livingston, Guatemala Youth Hostels Details for Casa De La Iguana


Situated at the mouth of the Rio Dulce, Livingston (or La Buga as it is known to its' Garifuna inhabitants) is a laid back Caribbean town. Livingston is part of the mainland, however, because it is only accessible by boat and lacks a road connecting to any other town, you'll get a sense of being on an island. Thankfully there are still good connections on to Honduras, Belize and the rest of Guatemala with minimal fuss.
The town has a population of around 17000 inhabitants of mixed cultures and races with majority being of Garifuna ancestry. These people trace their roots back to the Caribbean island of St Vincent, where shipwrecked African slaves mixed with the indigenous Carib in the 17th century. It took the British a long time and a lot of fighting to establish colonial control over St Vincent. In 1796 when they finally succeeded, they decided to deport its surviving 5000 Garifuna to the Honduran island of Roatan, but unfortunately only about 2000 survived the voyage.

Directions


You can only get to Livingston by boat either from Rio Dulce or Puerto Barrios. The boats from Rio Dulce leave at 9.30am and 1.30pm and the tour takes about two hours. It is the prettiest way to arrive. The regular boats from Puerto Barrios leave throughout the day and it only takes 30 minutes. The last boat leaves at 7pm. Once on the dock in Livingston turn left and walk 5 minutes. We are on the right hand side. Avoid hustlers at the dock. It is very easy to find us.
