Semuc Champey is a breathtaking waterfall located in the lush rainforest of Alta Verapaz, Guatemala. This natural wonder is considered one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Central America and is a popular tourist destination for those seeking adventure and natural beauty.

Semuc Champey is comprised of a series of cascading pools and limestone formations that span over 300 meters. The crystal clear turquoise waters are fed by the Cahabón River, which runs through the jungle and creates a stunning contrast against the lush green surrounding vegetation.

Visitors to Semuc Champey can swim in the pools, explore the surrounding caves, and take a dip in the cool, refreshing waters. The waterfall is also surrounded by lush jungle, offering ample opportunities for hiking and wildlife viewing.

To reach Semuc Champey, visitors must travel by road from nearby towns like Lanquín or Cobán. There are several tour companies that offer guided trips to the waterfall, which typically include transportation, food, and camping equipment.
