It's an amazing place and well worth the bumpy trip to get there. Worth staying local so you can go in early before all the tour groups. There are swings into the river and tube rides down it. Unfortunately the viewing platform was closed but there was no mention before arrival.
I had a chance to visit Semuc Champey during my travels through Guatemala. It truly is one of the most beautiful waterfalls I've seen in my life! There are many separate pools for swimming and you can organize a tour through your hostel or a local agency. Check out the amazing aerial photos!
