The wonders of Semuc Champey

A travel blog entry by markjezek


... you talking about Willis” I might hear you ask, well picture this - a torrential river (grade 5 rafting) rushing downhill and under a naturally formed 300m long limestone bridge, and then popping out the other end with as much gusto. Atop the bridge is a number of naturally formed turquoise rock pools that step down stream, allowing tourists to swim around and then jump, dive, step or slip into the next pool. You might be mistaken thinking that this water has come from ...

... of us and the guide. You wear only bikini when you enter the cave as it's muddy and wet. The only light comes from the candles that each person carries.
