Photoblog: Water Terraces of Semuc Champey
The water terraces of Semuc Champed aren't exactly a secret in #Guatemala. Lots of people have this place on their bucket list, and from I've found, it's for good reason. The water is crystal clear and great for #swimming. If you really want to get #active, you can slide between waterfalls!
While on assignment for V!VA Travel Guides in Central Guatemala, I had the chance to write about Semuc Champey. These turquoise pool terraces are naturally formed by the river flowing under a limestone bridge. Surrounded by thick forests, it’s almost like an oasis – quiet and calm.

Everyone I’d met in Guatemala raved about this rare spot. True enough, it lived up to expectations.
I wouldn’t say it’s off the beaten path – it’s on everyone’s itinerary. It’s quite hard to reach, but many tour operators can bring you there on a day tour. But what makes it so special? I’ll just let these pictures do the talking.
