The cascading pools of turquoise and emerald are often looked over in favor of the many other places worth venturing on the Guatemalan map, among them the ruins of Tikal, the colonial city of Antigua and the volcano-ringed Lake Atitlán. Semuc Champey means “where the river hides beneath the earth” in the Maya Qéqchi´ language. Aside from the stunningly beautiful waters and surroundings, what makes this spot special is the fact that these pools and waterfalls are actually a bridge of land (about 300m/984 ft. long) resting atop the raging Cahabón River. Tours to Semuc Champey from Guatemala City run about $35 for an all-day trip. Book at any local travel company.
