Grutas de Las Marias Aug 05, 2012
Last part of the Semuc tour was going to the cave that is the path of the underground river and it involves stragling trough the dark cave with candlelight, swimming, climbing the waterfall, jumping into dark holes or in the small pools of water from higher ground… This experience plays with all of your fears of unknown and fears of dark and it is actually dangerous. Just imagine that you have only one candle that is basically only light aside of light that guide has and it can be easily extinguished inside of the cave because you have to swim most of the time with one hand holding the candle above the water. Coming out of the cave river becomes nice waterfall and the sun is really appreciated by everyone.

I have never seen place like this anywhere in the world and I would go back to Semuc just to do it again!
