First time to CA. Looking for water taxi/transport information from either Livingston or Puerto Barrios - whichever makes more sense - to Punta Gorda. Travel is on a Saturday next month.

I need to be in Punta Gorda to catch an on-ward bus at 11:50am. From what I can find on-line, Pichillingo/Transportes El Chato has a boat from PB to PG at 10am. After that, my only other option is at 1pm on Mariso or 2pm via Requena's, both of which arrive too late. Does anyone know of any other options available? Are there other water taxis that go between these two points? i.e. will I be able to find a small operator willing to take me?

I've contacted a couple of places to stay who offer transport to Livingston, but not PB. Communication has not been very consistent from all of them, so I have yet to figure out how I'd get to PB or why boats don't stop in Livingston. How long would it take and who provides this service?

Also, does anyone know about getting an exit stamp. One of the bungalow options noted I could get my exit stamp in Livingston. Is that true?
MANY THANKS!!!

...hi, and welcome to our forum

lancha service from l'ston to p.gorda is only offered tuesdays and fridays....leaves 7 am, plenty of time to get you to your connection

transport is available every day from barrios. several departures....but you will need to spend a night there .....

if you take the l'ston trip, you need to be in l'ston the night before, as the boat leaves prior to the imigration office opening.

Steel Magnolia may be heading to PG around that time.

What's the date of your trip, Kate?

That would be great if that worked out. We'll be coming via bus from Honduras to Rio on Thursday, March 4th and need to be in PG on Saturday, March 6th.
