Who are we?
Greengo’s is more than a hotel, it’s a magical place created with love and care for all types of travellers. We are nestled right in the lush Semuc Champey valley, a short walk from the famous cascades and pools. The location provides our guests with an unparalleled experience to relax and enjoy Semuc Champey at their leisure. Please take a moment to read below for more information about us and the special experience we offer our guests. Greengo’s is a unique place, and part of the reason to visit Semuc Champey. From the beginning, we designed our facilities in harmony with our natural surroundings. A creek runs the length of the property, directly in front of the hammocked balconies of our private cabins. A living tree grows through our dining room which gives a wonderful view of the volleyball court and surrounding hills covered with local crops. We’ve worked with artists to decorate our buildings with beautiful murals and take deep pride in the positive and fun atmosphere Greengo’s is famous for. Even if you are staying elsewhere, stop by and say hi! We love meeting all travellers and know you will be enchanted by our little slice of paradise.
