How to get there?
We stayed in the small town of Lanquin. From there it was about 10 kilometers over a mountain to Semuc Champey. In Lanquin you will see lots of pick-ups or small busses with some kind of cage in the back. It looks a little bit like a cow transporter! But these vehicels are actually for transporting tourists and locals to Semuc Champey. With mixed feelings I was standing (it’s definitely better to stand in the back on the very bumpy road) in the back of one of these trucks. It was a rough ride and an adventure itself. You need to have some trust in the local driver. They know the road inside out and what seems to be sketchy for you is daily business for them!
