"Here, people really do rise from the dead, kill for love, and get struck down by mystery diseases that might very well be curses," said Kelly McBroom, who lives aboard her Jeanneau 30 Betty Boop, anchored near Ithaka, just off the Ak'Tenamit Clinic. Kelly's been the midwife at the clinic for more than a year now, and in addition to standing call and attending to general patients at Ak'Tenamit, her job's been to train women in 40 Q'eqchi v......

In the past dozen or so years the Río Dulce has become a sanctuary for a small cruising community that stays at about a half dozen marinas around Fronteras, a small town just before Lake Izabel, about 20 miles inland from Livingston.
