Explore the Stunning Pools of Semuc Champey

Guatemala Semuc Champey

Added by Jake Myhre

Semuc Champey is not only stunningly beautiful but also geologically amazing! Consisting of a series of cascading pools, and ending in a waterfall, Semuc Champey is a must-see for anyone traveling Guatemala.

From the parking lot Semuc Champey has two seperate route options. The lower route follows the river up to a series of cascading limestone pools which are great for swimming and soaking. It is truly beautiful. There is also a second route which is a bit of a hike but will lead you up, past fruit vendors, to a scenic overlook of the area. Every path deserves exploration.
