  • Visit Semuc Champey dated June 21. It is really impressive and very well maintained. I liked the wooden walkways and the locker room. Also congratulations for the surveillance of this paradise since I saw several caregivers. Even though it is low season, the place was full of international visitors, young people enjoying a wonderful journey of adventure travelers.

  • Breath taking place! A treasure of nature hidden in the forest, awaiting for the brave ones who can make it there (long bus drives). Our reccomendation is not to take any tour, just arrive early morning go to the mirador to catch a view from the top of the pools and then walk down to jump in the crystal clear waters!
  • Great spot! It was in even better visiting it with a guide, he showed places where you can jump off the waterfall, see underwater caves. Amazing experience!
  • Top highlight in Guatemala! Central part of this country is so beautiful:) Don't forget about the cave experience, it is amazing and you can feel like Indiana Jones with candles in your hands
  • Awesome place! Would definitely recommend taking a tour through the caves. You go in with just candles and half walk half swim through. Afterwards you can use a huge swing into the river and tube down a couple of kilometres. Also, the guide pointed us to the minecaves in semuc, where just your head fits in. Definitely a unique experience.
  • Wonderful place, where you can enjoy the nature, the colors and textures 💚 Swim in the cave Kanba, tubing at the river Cahabon and hiking around.. Don't forget your insect repellent.
