Most of it is still standing, and visitors are free to roam the entire castle, climb various stairs to get views of Rio Dulce, as well as explore the ground level.
We're staying at the Hotel mansion del Rio and we took a boat ride around the inlet and into the lake.

Probably the only real Caribbean taste in Guatemala.It takes about an hour on a boat to get there, but when you arrive is rewarding!

We had a wonderful lunch and it was just a wonderful day, exploring this beautiful colonial town and learning about the history.
Gus limits the kayak tours to very small groups, and so our family of 2 adults and 3 kids effectively had a private tour, with both a boat driver for the support boat and a friendly english speaking guide.
