Guess what? Lanquin is also named and spelled Semuc Champey - It is the same destination. Goodbye confusion.

Boasting a beautiful, refreshing, sparkling blue river, Lanquin is definitely one of Guatemala's hidden gems. With nearby Semuc Champey coaxing travelers of all kinds into the centre of the country, Lanquin does not get enough credit for what it can contribute to a traveler's journey through Central America. It is surrounded by beautiful, rolling, jungle-covered mountains that cradle both the sunset and sunrise beautifully.

The city itself provides a small market catering to both the extremely friendly locals as well as the tourists who are lucky enough to pass through. As the vendors reel you in with the fresh fruits and vegetables grown in local farms, the churches' flickering candles and lulling hymns are nearly impossible to miss. The town seems to have a sort of peace that runs through it. The few main streets make it easy to navigate through to some of the town's attractions you can't miss.

When in Lanquin, you have to take advantage of the natural wonders by either bathing in or tubing on the neon blue river, taking a day trip to Semuc Champey, including visiting the Mayan caves and bridge jumping. The town itself is also home to millions of bats, which leave the public cave nightly, creating a beautiful show.

The lodging in Lanquin is limited but beautiful. Your options for Lanquin hostels are limited, but you will take advantage of the hills' views and the running river. Lanquin is a must-do if you're touring Central America.
