Semuc Champey

Semuc Champey is a series of limestone pools formed by the Cahabon river in central Guatemala. The river feeds into the green and blue pools which lie at the bottom of a steep valley. Also found inside the pools are small fish that eat the dead skin off of your toes, terrorizing or amusing, and all the while cleansing swimmers. Despite its remote location Semuc Champey is a popular attraction. When I visited it was Semana Santa and thus inundated with Guatemalan tourists. Although the pools lacked the peace and quiet that I desired it was still well worth the visit.
