It's a mammoth journey in a mini bus from Flores to Semuc Champey. In total 10 hours over some very sketchy roads! But upon arrival you get some of the best views I have had in Guatemala. A short walk from Gringos hostel you enter the national park. It's a steep climb to the Mirador (view point) but when there you are greeted by this amazing view of the natural pools. The warm, crystal clear waters are perfect to swim in and can slide from one pool to another back towards the enterance. If you stay still for a while the fish will swim up and give you a pedicure! It's a long detor if your heading towards Guatemala City, but you get see some of the real Guatemala and get away from it all. Just don't forget your bug spray!
