Semuc Chanpey is a series of Travertine pools and waterfalls in virgin rainforest, located 11 kilometers from Lanquin. The place is incredible also it’s a really fun and beautiful place to swim in and explore.
When the water passes over the lip of a dam, it is agitated, which causes the water to evaporate and deposit calcite on the top of the dam. Thus the dams are being built up faster than normal erosion can wear them down.
The pools and waterfalls occur on top of a huge cave through which flows the Rio Cahabon.
After this incredible visit you will back to Antigua Guatemala.
