Santo Tomas de Castilla - GUATEMALA our day

Recommended Posts

Just thought I would post some details about our recent day in Santo Tomas as there seemed very little info available on the forums.

 

Our ship Marella discovery 2 docked in Santo Tomas which is a container port so there is no where to walk to. Once you get off the ship there is a large warehouse with indoor market selling some nice handmade crafts just remember to barter to about 1/4 of their starting price. 

 

 

Outside there are many taxi and mini buses taking you on a trip inland or boat companies taking you up the dulce river and Livingston.

We took a boat trip. Each company just seemed to wait until they had a boat full then their guide took the next boat out. Happy fish were the main company but there were others inside and outside the warehouse. We went with blue creek but they all appeared to do the same. approx. $45 each for a small boat with sun canopy up river dulce canyon, lily ponds, stop at a native house to see them cooking, hot springs, lunch in Livingstone then beach. So a full day. Be outside as early as you can as the same boat stays with you for the day so once all the boats have gone that's it.  scenery was very beautiful.
