8.9 Semuc ChampeyDecember 9, 2018 in Guatemala ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C
Semuc Champey is the most common and attractive spot in the region. At least for tourists. They go to Lanquín and stay there, or visit one of the few hostels/hotels dir colt at Semuc Champey.
Semuc Champey are a natural arrangement of pools in the middle of the jungle. Interestingly, the river which provides the water is going underground, while it feeds water to the surface above it, filling and creating these pools (see last picture).
You can either go there from Lanquín by pickup truck, in which case you will be standing on the loading area and having to hold your self on to the railing, or you can hike there which takes 2-3 hours instead of 45 minutes. And you can enjoy the nature better.
The water is cold but nice. I recommend staying there a few days.Read more
