Semuc Champey open on Christmas

Our current itinerary would lead us to arrive in Lanquin on Christmas eve, and visit Semuc Champey on Christmas day. I was wondering if the park will open on Christmas, and what are chances are of finding transport there.

Thank you!

Great question as I am wondering the exact same thing. I know that El Retiro lodge is not leading any groups out there on Christmas but that is about it. Look forward to seeing what others say.

Hi guys. Of course everything shuts down on x-mas and new years day in guatemala. But all the beaches and recreational places are open because that's how most people with the family in-tow plan to enjoy the day off. Public transportation doesn't operate on a normal schedule. But you should be able to hire a taxi to go just about anywhere. Good luck.

Christmas in Guatemala is the 24th. the 25th is pretty much a normal day and one of the only days many Guatemalans get off, so Semuk Champey will be open I am sure, however, I wouldn't recommend going till 26th as it will be incredibly crowded with Guatemalans!!
