Description

Posada las Marias is a Hotel that allows camping in its parking lot. We payed 25Q p.P. The showers were very clean and it's only 250m away from the natural monument. River access across street with rope swing and swimming. it's the closest possibility to camp, if you don't want to stay at the parking-lot. You can walk to the pools. Everyone was very friendly. Electricity stops at 10pm.

Lo mejor para acampar. Espectacular, la gente qué atiende es increíble, nos apoyaron con una emergencia se un compañero. Nos prestaron un boutiquin y nos llevaron de emergencia a Lanquin. Volvería ir sin duda

As described.... restaurant was being remodeled while we were there but work stopped before dark. A nice pool has been complete for a cool-off, free if you're renting cabanad, 10q pp if camping. Tent campers!! They have a nice place across the river for tent camping, accessed by a rooe-drawn ferry/raft that they'll pull across the river. Camping g area has bathrooms for sure and showers perhaps (check with owner). Seems like a really nice spot and you'll be away from others but with some convenience (minus restaurant unless you want to ferry back across). Owner also has info on nearby K'an Ba cave at the bridge, which is 8-10km long (2km open for guided tourists), mostly swimming. We didn't do the cave tour.

Good spot for one night, super friendly and about a 8 minutes walk to the pools. The river was pretty brown so we didn't go in but the pools were awesome. Cold showers but it's so hot it felt great.

Good place to stay in Semuc Champey. Parking not completely leveled, but was easy enough to find a decent spot.
bathrooms, showers (cold, but you don't need hot here) in good shape. Friendly guy on the reception talked to us about our car and proudly put a sticker on his moto :)
About 2min drive (rough and last bit steep) to Semuc Champey pools, you can even walk if you want. The bridge is up to 15 tons, so good for all but the largest vehicles.
PS: swing is nice, but apparently not made for people over 6feet - keep hitting the water in the beginning. If you try it, you have to lift your legs close to your body.

After a long and challenging drive frim Lanquin, we got a warm welcome by the friendly people that run the place. Our truck is 3,25 meters high and we just fit under the gate. Being the first to jump in the incredibly beautiful puddles in the morning is really worth the bumpy drive!
We've managed to do the road to Semuc without problem, with a little sweat though. We drive a 4,5 ton 2x4 high clearance rig. Reconsider if you drive a crappy camper...

They have tent camping along the river but we like to be by our motorcycle so opted for the parking lot. Hammock friendly. They weren’t serving food at the restaurant while we were here but had some snacks and wine. It was quiet, kind of seems like they are renovating. We recommend bringing any supplies you will need with you. We had a great time swinging off the rope swing and they provided wood so that we could bbq.

GREAT spot! Plenty of common areas, cheap cold beer, nice area to camp or park your rig. Descent restaurant. Communal bathrooms, showers, sink to do dishes. BEST part is the river access right across the street with the longest and best rope swing I've ever seen dunking you 50 feet in o the center of the river. This thing is amazing but come see for yourself. The 25Q per person is worth the rope swing itself.
