Guatemala and El Salvador Trip Day 7

Today we went to Semuc Chempay.  This is one of the most beautiful places we have ever been.  It is a row of 7 or 8 crystal clear pool.  We hiked up to a view point of the pools before we went to swim in them.  You would have thought we were torturing the kids by making them hike first because they wanted so badly to get to the pools to swim in them.

View of the pools

Our house in Lanquin had a steam room.  You had to start your own fire to get the steam.

Guatemala and El Salvador Trip Day 6

Today we drove to Lanquin.  Some of the roads were crazy.
Church out in the middle of nowhere on the way to Lanquin.
House we stayed at in Lanquin

Floated down the rive Cobon in Lanquin. I don't think that they see many white people floating down the river.  Everyone stopped an starred at us.

We found a rope swing on the side of the river that the kids just had to try out.

Guatemala and El Salvador Trip Day 5

We drove to Biotope del Quetzal today and went for a hike to a waterfall.  We hadn't brought our swimming suits and the kids really wanted to swim so Tanner and Garret ran all the way back and got their swimsuits and Katie's so that they could swim in the waterfall.
