nice scenery, coldish water, lots of people having fun and making the appropriate noises to go with it. Not really worth a detour, still, something different from all the Mayan ruins :-) more »
One of the most beautiful places I have ever been. Water is gorgeous. Got to jump 18m into beautiful turquoise waters and climb up a mountain to get the most beautiful view. There was even a giant swing to jump in the water. Breathtaking views EVERYWHERE. People in Guatemala are amazing guides and always want their group to have fun!
Semuc is very out of the but that makes it very relaxing. The drive is through the mountains and very slow and bumpy. When you eat the lake you find locals asks to guide, you can walk yourself but then again supporting local economies is nice too. The hike in and I mean hike is about 30 minutes but the pools are awesome.
