Without a doubt, Semuc Chempey is one of the things you absolutely must do when visiting Guatemala. Although we rented a 4x4 at the airport in Guatemala City, I do not recommend driving to this location yourself. The dirt roads between Lanquin and S.C. are...More

We were there at a time not many people were around so it felt like we had the place al to our self. The ride to the place is worth it! I loved the view and the water is nice and cool.

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.

If you love the outdoors, you will love Semuc Champey. We went for a weekend from Antigua. It was an 8.5 hour ride but well worth it. We arrived at the park and filled out the necessary forms. We paid a small fee to enter....More

It's a really long drive, we were completely wiped out after spending the day at Semuc Champey. The hike up to El Mirador is long and tedious, but totally worth it. But it's also really tiring and the thought of having to do... More
