    We were disappointed with our stay at El Portal. We stayed there in early April 2017. Location: We were expecting peace, tranquility and nature - like it says on their website “In our vision is the care of the environment, we are a totally ecological...More

    It is so close to Semuc Champey, you walk "from door to door" sort of speak, taking into account that is a "difficult" road from the town to the park. The rooms are fine and clean, the only thing I have to say is: There...More

    How do you get to the Hostal? I'll be coming from Tikal/Flores so I'm trying to figure out what town I stop in and what type of service is available to get to the hostal. Is it provided by the hostal or do I need to go through a tour company to get dropped off in the Park?

    We are retirees from US traveling to Semuc Champey in a rental car in mid January and plan on staying at Hostal El Porta. I've read that the road is very bad the last 6 miles to get there. Should we stay elsewhere and take the truck there or can we attempt it on our own?
