Worst of all, they slip in the rain, but it's worth it. The bath in the pools is spectacular and the visit to the pure adventure cave, places where to swim bJo earth and a waterfall that will be etched in the retina forever. Going against the current and climbing after the waterfall does not leave you indifferent.

I had a chance to visit Semuc Champey during my travels through Guatemala. It truly is one of the most beautiful waterfalls I've seen in my life! There are many separate pools for swimming and you can organize a tour through your hostel or a local agency. Check out the amazing aerial photos!
Beautiful place. The drive there was a little rough. There are people willing to shuttle you there. I would suggest buying some food to take there. Food is pretty limited. There is a 30 min hike up the mountain to get a good view of the water. 100% recommend.
