The Bobos River is a river in Guatemala. It rises in the Sierra de Caral, a small mountain range in the eastern department of Izabal and runs in a north-westerly direction to join the Motagua River.

The Río Bobos Hydroelectric Dam spans the river about 16.5 kilometres (10.3 mi) south-east of Morales.
