Hike up a small, tree-covered river with cascading pools and falls. The river was running well when we visited so we had to cross it twice during. Wear hiking sandals that can get wet and use a walking stick if you've got it.

It's the end of the dry season. The only pool that had a little water was at the top. About a 10 minute walk. You can imagine the beauty when the water is running. They still charge you Q20 to get in.

We visited Seven Altars on a tour that took us to Playa Blanca. We had visited Semuc Champey earlier in the week and for those who don't want to go through the long drive to get there, this place has a similar look. The ponds...More

Some nice waterfalls that are reachable by a stroll along the beach. Good place to cool down from the heat!

The 7 altares are 15 via boat from Livingston directly at the the Caribbean beach. At the end we are talking about some natural pools and waterfalls. It's a nice place but going to all the places just take some time because of all the...More
