The journey to and from Lanquin is nothing short of hellish - the "roads" are bumpy, pot-holed and steep. It takes more than an hour to do 9km... (this is especially traumatic if you've travelled from Rio Dulce on roads like this. We and other travellers got stung but trying to do a shorter route that missed out Lanquin - don't do it! It means hours more on those awful roads, before still ending up in Lanquin - better, even if longer in kilometres, to go to Lanquin and go from there). However Semuc Champey is worth the trek! Stunning natural pools to swim in and breathtaking scenery.
