The area called "the Rio Dulce" begins at the mouth of the river on the Bahia de Amatique at the Garifuna town of  Livingston. Going up, the river passes through a spectacular steep walled canyon thickly blanketed with jungle vegetation and wildlife. The river then widens into a small lake, El Golfete, whose shores are lined with beautiful spots, Mayan settlements and a manatee reserve. The river then narrows and passes the towns of Fronteras and El Relleno. A short way further up, the river widens into 590 square kilometer Lake Izabal, the largest lake in Guatemala. The Rio Dulce is a large river that is 500 to 1500 meters (1/3 to 1 mile) wide over much of its length. The narrowest spot is at a point called La Vaca where the river narrows to a little over 100 meters (300 feet) as it squeezes through The Canyon. The river and lakes are fed by many smaller rivers and countless creeks and streams.

The Rio Dulce is an aquatic community. Outside the towns of Fronteras and El Relleno there are no roads or footpaths other than a road leading to San Felipe, so all homes and businesses on the rio have a boat dock.

You will find the people along the Rio Dulce to be among the friendliest you have ever encountered, with a strong sense of community spirit, pride and service. The Rio Dulce is the favorite vacation spot for many wealthy Guatemalans. The focus along the river is primarily aquatic with the emphasis on boating and water sports, but many backpackers and travelers from all parts of the world use the Rio Dulce as a jumping-off point for trips into the Peten, the rest of Guatemala, to Belize and Honduras.
