Excellent blue pools in a relaxing setting. Enjoyed swimming in the 75 F waters, not cold, not hot. Feels like you are in heaven. Underneath the pools is a raging river. Such a contrast.

There are two types of travelers in Guatemala those who've been to Semuc Champey and those who haven't. It is a difficult journey but the reward is breathtaking and worth every bumpy minute!

Don't even think. Just go to Semuc Champey. Probably the most underrated and unnoticed attractions of Guatemala. Paradise on earth would be an understatement. Mesmerizing views and natural pools between valleys. Chilled water flowing through the pools which require more than eyes to enjoy the...More

So much adventure, we went on a tour with vista verde hostel which was great! The candle lit cave tour and the walk to the top of the hill were great. The tubing could have been longer but maybe other groups did a longer tour...More
