Hot waterfall

a hot waterfall in the rio dulce / lake izabal region of guatemala

Sometime I would like to visit this hot waterfall at Agua Caliente, Finca El ParaĆ­so, in Guatemala’s Lake Izabal/Rio Dulce area. The water falling from the hot springs above is said to be extremely hot. The river water is cool. Behind the spray there is supposed to be a pleasant saunalike pool.

Nearly all the photos on this site are mine, but this, obviously, is not one of them. It’s from justin.slammer’s flickr photostream.

There is a brief account of visiting the falls at AdventureTravelLogue.

    Justin Slammers’ Central American images on flickr are awesome.
    I especially like the overhead shots of the market.

    are your pictures copyright as I am doing a DIDA couse at school and would be intrested in using some of your pictures. If they are copyright could I use them for educational purposes only?
