Guatemala - Turquoise Paradise by lux69aeterna Guatemala - Turquoise Paradise by lux69aeterna
Semuc Champey in Guatemala has been recognized in 1999 by president Alvazo Arzu as natural heritage and has been getting more and more attention by travellers since then. It is a paradisiac 300m limestone bridge consisting of natural pools with turquoise and emerald green colours. Close to the cities of Lanquin and Coban, it is still rather difficult to get to, but with enough time in the country, it is certainly a must see! 

Exif: 35mm, 15s, F9, ISO 100

Wow what a beautiful photo. Love how you captured the flow of the water. Lovely colors. Well worth the "natural heritage" designation.

Have a great day.

Ze zijn allemaal heel mooi en je komt ook op prachtige locaties! Geniet ervan! En zo krijg ik ook eens iets anders te zien dan mijn eigen kleine wereldje. ;) En nog reizen in het vooruitzicht?

Maar deze is inderdaad wel héééééél mooi!!! :clap:

Somehow, in a way, this reminds me of Plitvice Lakes in Croatia. I guess it's the colors and the serenity in the photo.
Me likes :)
