Castillo de San Felipe travel

The San Felipe fort was originally constructed in 1652 to defend the Izabal Lake against pirates. It

was then converted into a prison when buccaneers ceased to exist. It now the main tourist attraction in the area. You can get there by microbus, but we feel it is best viewed from the water such as on the Rio Dulce boat tour. If you are doing a day trip on the Rio Dulce boat tour, consider getting dropped off there and walking back. Admission is Q20 / $2.75 but they have a free park that you can enjoy as well. The fortress and castle of San Felipe de Lara, El Castillo de San Felipe, about 3km west of Río Dulce town, was built in 1652 to keep pirates from looting the villages and commercial caravans of Izabal. Though the fortress somewhat deterred the buccaneers, a pirate force captured and burned it in 1686. Read more: https://diytravelhq.com/rio-dulce-boat-tour-livingston/
