  • while you are in Semuc is wealth visiting las cuevas especially as part of a tour. Is an interesting walk of 600 meters, swimming through the river, sometimes climbing, or jumping.  more »
  • The experience is amazing but I think they should be clearer with information about the visit. It is Not suitable for people with mobility problems, overweight, claustrofobicas, who do not know how to swim, etc, etc. The Tour is done with a companion (I can not say that they are guides because they hardly speak) who is showing the way and helps to pass through some very narrow places. I Don't understand how they don't give helmets with flashlights. It Is very difficult to maneuver and walk up and down stairs with a candle in your hand. Besides that there are parts where the water gets to the neck Said This, the place is super nice and the experience is very interesting. Only It's not for everyone and they should clarify it before they get in.
