Water Adventures

A travel blog entry by davidandmaria


Semuc Champey is famed for "it's great 300m long natural limestone bridge, on top of which is a stepped series of pools with cool, flowing water good for swimming". Only a small amount of the water from the Rió Cahabón actually flows through the pools, the majority of it passes underground, below the bridge. With the colour of the pools ranging from turquoise to emerald green, this piece of paradise is considered by many to be the most ...

A travel blog entry by markjezek


... I forgot to mention that the view from the loo and the shower was crazy cool!

For the next 7 days Amanda and I took it very easy here taking advantage of all that the retreat had to offer. From waking up early, taking in the volcanic eruptions, to doing yoga at 7am before a wonderful breakfast. Then continuing the day, reading, hiking, sitting in a hamoc all the while having an amazing view to keep us company. Dinner was served usually around 6:30pm, and then nearly ...

The little boy swiftly put his pants back on and came over offering us to buy chocolate, we both said no I Italy but then I caved. No sooner had I gave him my money. Had he took off with a ...

... toppings were but they were really good! We ate on the side of the street where we watched people in tradtional mayan clothes walk by toting baskets of fruit on their heads or holding bags of chickens in their arms.

The ride to lanquin was LONG.... 2.5 hours. and most of it was on a really bumpy road where we were tossed around, often ...

    Great stay in Huehue

    Our group stayed for a week here, and had a wonderful experience. The hotel is the oldest here, but beautifully renovated, and boasts a serene inner patio in the middle. There are birds, fountains, and wifi, and thus is a perfect oasis from the hustle and bustle of the city of Huehue. Much recommended.
