How to get fast to Livingston
Apr 2017 • Couples
We chose memo's boat, because we wanted to go directly to Livingston, Guatemala. There are a lot of boats, but they usualy goes to Puerto Barrios. The price for the boat to Livingston is 50 belizean dollars.

I've traveled twice with Memo on his Livingston, Guatemala trip. Memo runs a professional service and takes great care of his passengers. Memo is friendly, well-traveled, and kind. So jump on board and let Memo take you to Guatemala!!

Was $60 US dollars for two people to ferry to Livingston. Buy you ticket in pink building next to courthouse across from immigration. Ferry leaves early am or afternoon found out so plan on hanging around to buy your ticket and to leave.

I recently went on a 4 night trip from Punta Gorda, Belize to Livingston, Guatemala. I took Memo's Boat for the trip. The way over was fine and left soon after buying my ticket. I was with 2 friends, the three of us bought a round trip boat ticket for 120BLZ.

We left on a Tuesday to Livingston, Memo was to pick us up on Saturday to bring us back to Punta Gorda. Memo had written on all our tickets to be at the port at 3-3:30pm for pickup. We arrived at the port at 2:30 and waited until 6pm for him. He never showed up! We had spent all our $, had to change more $'s to Guatemala $ to pay for another night hotel as well as dinner. None of us could really afford to do this, we had no choice, thanks to Memo! We called him after we re-checked into the hotel to find out what happened to him, why he didnt pick us up when he had promised. A lame excuse was given, not even worthy of repeating, he said he would pick us up the next day and he would "make it up to us" when he saw us. The next morning, as we headed back to immigration to make sure our "stamp out" of the country was still valid and we wouldnt have any troubles returning to Belize, Memo appeared. We yelled at him, told him we needed to "discuss" and for him to make up for all the financial extras we incurred because of his negligence. He said OK, gave us $20 for breakfast, while we waited for him to take us back to Belize and discuss futher compensation.
Now I'm from NYC. When I am "wronged" or "inconvenienced" I like to be compensated for my troubles. What would of made me feel rectified would have been to be reimbursed for the return ticket as well as the hotel and dinner for the previous night. I also would have been happy with just the hotel and dinner paid for by Memo. I felt the $20 for 3 breakfasts was an apology, a kick in the bucket for all my inconvenience and financial ruin.

Now my 2 travel buddies were offered a free trip back to Livingston at a later date, they happily accepted that as they have friends there and knew at some later date they would return, they were content with his offering. I, on the other hand did not accept that offer, I didnt plan on returning, nor would I trust him for a future trip. I told him at least he needed to pay for my hotel and dinner, a mere 60BLZ, $20US and I would leave his life forever, semi content. He told me he had no $ (liar!), he had to go back to Guatemala, make a pick-up and come back before he could give me $, in other words, I needed to wait around for the next 4-5 hours, if I were to have a chance of any payback. After being held up already for 24hrs, with 2 angry cats waiting for me at home (I feel comfortable leaving my cats for 3-4 days with someone stopping by to feed and water them, I was now at 6 days and stressed), I opted to leave w/o any payback and a VERY bad taste in my mouth.
Memo is a liar and has no "Scruples", dont trust him, dont rely on him and definitely NEVER do a round trip or you might not get picked up for a return.
I have only one "good" thought about this ordeal, about Memo, as I travel a lot and at times need to follow a strict schedule. My good thought is....
Thank goodness I didnt have a flight to catch in Belize City, that I would have missed!
