The most incredible experience ever. The hike up to the Mirador (lookout) is challenging for those out of shape, but do it! Its so worth it! Its a million dollar view. Ten times more beautiful than the pictures, and the pictures are stunning. Swimming in the pools was an awesome experience and a great reward after the hike. Get a free fish pedicure as the pools of full of fish. One word of warning: someone in our group got their backpack and camera stolen. Keep your bags in view at all times. Such a beautiful part of stunning Guatemala.

This is one of those places that you want to record in your mind so you can return back there any time. It is incredibly beautiful and so relaxing. The hike up to the Mirador is worth the little bit of effort because the view is incredible! Would definitely recommend and go back myself!

It can be a little difficult to get there but local people offers you transportation And its totally worth it. The beauty of its colors, shapes and its sourrondings will surely amaze you. Water's temperature is ideal nor cold or hot. There is a lot to enjoy in the department (state) of Guatemala where Semuc Champey is located (Alta verapaz)
