SEMUC CHAMPEY

Semuc Champey is a set of crystalline pools over the Río Cahabón in Alta Verapaz, Guatemala. It consists of a natural 300 m limestone bridge, under which passes the Cahabón River. Atop the bridge is a series of stepped, turquoise pools, a popular swimming attraction. Semuc is part of the backpacker trail in Guatemala.


At an altitude of approximately 341 m Semuc Champey's climate is usually warm, typical of a tropical rainforest jungle, getting colder through the night.


Being surrounded by tropical jungle, Semuc Champey is often clouded, especially in the rainy season.

You will walk in the park to the beautiful pools, visit the K’anba Caves where you will crawl, climb, and even swim through some parts with a candle in your hand and finish the day with some tubing down the river.
