- Discover a subterranean wonderland
- Swim in the famous Semuc Champey turquoise pools
This unmissable Guatemala gift experience takes you into the Semuc Champey National Park, which is rapidly growing a reputation as a must-visit site for travellers? Why? A long natural stone bridge lined with natural pools that are filled with turquoise water, forming one of the most scenic and blissful swimming areas you’re ever likely to see. First, however, you’ll travel from Lanquin village to the park by truck, accompanied by a guide, along the way stopping to explore the mysterious Kanba Caves network. The journey through the underground river caves is around 1000 metres, during which you’ll scramble over rocks, climb up waterfalls and swim through narrow channels and pools, your progress illuminated only by candlelight.
After the challenge of the caves, you can relax for a while with a picturesque tubing ride along the Cahabon River, another immensely popular attraction in this part of Guatemala. Finally, a trek through the national park awaits, after which you’ll be rewarded with a soak in the pools of Semuc Champey. A swimsuit, a towel and a sense of adventure are required for this thrilling Guatemala sightseeing tour through some of the country’s most majestic natural destinations.
