Puerto Barrios is a hot Caribbean port city and a convenient launching-off place, as buses and boats head out of the town and port in most directions. On the other hand, if you need to take a break from destination-hopping, check out the town market, where locals sell homemade food and other wares; the market’s encircled by several restaurants too. Meanwhile, Río Dulce, its national park, and several other parks and wildlife reserves are all within an hour’s drive.
