It's only about an hour from the Seven Altars to Livingston Beach, and I recommend it. There is hardly ever anyone on the road, and the road borders the Caribbean. Unfortunately some currents bring a lot of rubbish to shore (or maybe it's that people throw a lot of garbage in the ocean? Both are very likely!). The magic of the falls of Seven Altars is that according to the season they change completely. In dry season (october-march/april) the pools are empty, between the first and the last they're usually full of water where you can bathe in the woods. During the rainy season (April to October) there are indeed seven waterfalls pouring water into the pools, and the current is quite strong - you can see the difference in the pictures: The 2nd season is rainy, the other dry season.
