Semuc Champey is a natural water-park in the middle of Guatemala’s rich jungle. Some have called it the 8th wonder of the world. Semuc Champey is a natural monument in the department of Alta Verapaz, Guatemala, near the Q’eqchi’ Mayan town of Lanquin. It consists of a natural 300m limestone bridge, under which passes the Cahabon River. Atop the bridge is a series of stepped, turquoise pools,where you can swim, cliff jump, swing on a rope swing or just relax and enjoy the amazing beauty around you. Due to the surrounding subtropical forest it is a very ecologically rich area where numerous plants and animals have been identified. There are over 100 species of birds, 34 species of mammals, 25 species of reptiles and amphibians. Additionally there are 10 different species of fish and more than 120 different types of trees.
We will take you on an amazing hike to the overlook where you can have a birdseye view of the entire park, and if you are lucky, see some monkeys in the trees!
