Filled with an interestingly cultural history that involves shipwrecked slave ships, the Caribbean and a Mayan population, most people are bi if not tri-lingual.  I didnīt get to here the famous music of the region but it seemed to be a good jump off point for people to get to Belize, The Bay Islands in Honduras etc.  Really you can capture the essence of Livingston in one day.  It is also a visiting point for cruise ships so just be prepared.

It is quite poor and having been in Xela for so long I almost forgot about the starving dogs.  The homes range from tin shacks in various stages of rusting, warped
wooden houses to adorable cottages of the clearly more wealthy type. 

My favorite part of Livingston were all the different types of birds, and, in spite of how incredibly nastily smelly, all the fish that were laid out everyday to dry.

The next best thing was the 20 minute boat ride through the Rio Dulce to Finca Tatin.
