ACTIVITIES & Facilities
YOU ASked, we answered
How do I get there?Greengo's is located right next to Semuc Champey National Park, which is 11 km from the nearest town of Lanquin. There are shuttle companies that run daily to Lanquin from the major cities of Antigua, Guatemala City, Flores, Rio Dulce, and Panajachel. We offer a free pick-up service from Lanquin for guests who stay a minimum of 2 nights. The Greengo’s shuttle service operates between 3 to 9 pm (if you are with one of the tourist shuttles and it is running late, we offer our service till 10 pm *this does not apply to private shuttles*). The Greengo’s truck will be waiting where you arrive, you won’t need to notify us (unless you are coming on a “collectivo”, then please notify us). We do not reimburse for any transport that is not organized by us. The return trip to Lanquin is Q35 per person, unless you buy your onward shuttle ticket with us, in which case it will be included in the price. Please be advised that we do our best to get you to Greengo's as quickly as possible, but as we have to coordinate with the arrival of many shuttles on different routes with varying road conditions, there is sometimes a waiting period in Lanquin. Please be patient - getting you here promptly is our top priority. Grab a beer at the nearby tienda and practice your Spanish with the locals while you wait! For those planning to drive to Greengo's, know that the road from Lanquin to our location is unpaved, and is only accessible by 4x4 vehicles or motorbikes. We have onsite free parking available for our guests.
Do you accept credit cards?Yes, we can process credit card payments, but a 6% charge does apply. There are no ATMs in the Semuc Champey area, so we advise you to visit an ATM before arriving here. There is one ATM in Lanquin, but it is not always reliably working. It is best to get cash out in a larger city, where there are more ATM options available.
How long should I stay?Because of the long travel time getting to and from the area, we suggest a minimum stay of three nights. This allows for the first day of travel, two full days to relax and explore, and the fourth day to travel to your next destination. Of course, the more time you have, the better! If you prefer to slow down and really explore the area, we offer plenty of tours and activities to keep you entertained for much longer.
Why should I book a tour with Greengo's?We are located just 10-minutes walk to the Semuc Champey park entrance, making it easy for travelers to visit the pools on their own. We offer the K'an Ba Caves Tour for those who want to discover a little more with the assistance of our expert local guides. They will explore with you through the hidden caverns below the water's surface. Our guides are very knowledgable about the area, and know how to show our guests a good time! Always pointing out the best places to jump from waterfalls and swim in the cool water of the caves.
Are you pet friendly?Unfortunately, we do not allow guests to bring pets because we cannot have animals inside the rooms. However, we do have several friendly dogs living at the hostel, eager to play with guests.
What should I bring?CASH! The nearest ATM is in the town of Lanquin, which is a 30 minute drive from Greengo’s. Come prepared with enough cash for the duration of your stay (remember this means paying for things like your accommodation, food, drinks, tours, entry fees to the park and caves, and onward travel tickets). Water-friendly shoes are great for the Semuc Champey pools, and necessary for the K'an Ba Caves. We also reccommend using natural, biodegradable products (i.e. sunscreen or mosquito repellant) when swimming at Semuc Champey to minimize human impact on the eco-system. Other useful items: refillable water bottle, padlock, good hiking shoes, dry-bag, and a Go Pro! for underwater photos.
Are you kid friendly?We are an 18+ hostel, as the party culture is not appropriate for minors. Please speak to us in advance if you are travelling with mature teenagers and wish to stay at Greengo's.
