Guatemala is a land of rugged mountains, thick rainforests, and lovely rivers. The rivers often descend from mountains and empty their contents into oceans or lakes. Exploring one of Guatemala’s rivers can be fun and fulfilling. The most commonly visited rivers include the Río Dulce and Río Cahabón, although there are many others that are worth seeing. Guatemala’s rivers are often surrounded by picturesque jungles and are good places to swim, kayak, or relax; some rivers also have excellent white-water rapids that are perfect for rafting.
