The entrance fee worked out at MX$40 per person It's a more interactive experience than other waterfalls we've been too here in Mexico. You can walk under the waterfall and venture into the grotto cave and see another waterfall inside, as well as sleeping bats (an extra MX$10 to do the grotto). You can also swim in the lagoon under... More

What a wonderful spot we found here! There was virtually no one there. We arrived early.. Water is cool and deep, fall is impressive. Take the climb to the back to visit the cave with the waterfall inside. 10 peso's. They claim not to have change so beware. This fall was a Highlight. Definately. Road advice: (!!!) When travelling by... More

You will be blown away by this beautiful waterfall near Palenque. You'll just stare in amazement. Definitely a camera moment. So refreshing. Swimming allowed beside it. Theres a pathway behind the waterfall but be careful not to slip. Worth taking a bus trip to see it. I would book another trip there.

Mishol-Ha is a pretty park with waterfalls. I would recommend for a visit but I much preferred Cascadas de Agua Azul. If you choose to do an organized tour you will probably stop in both anyways.

A charming location we enjoyed the short walk down and behind the waterfall. Getting wet was well worth the view from behind the falls but if you are planning to take the walk ensure you have a plastic cover to protect your camera. If you have children keep them close as the path very quickly changes from a dry safe... More

I want to give these falls and the whole park a better review, but it was not as good as it could have been. The falls were thundering. An astounding force of nature and quite hypnotic. The point deductions go to the silly ejido fees we saw in this part of Mexico. You pay a few pesos to get on... More

We only had 45 minutes there on a tour but would have liked to stay longer. They have cabanas for rent and plan on staying at least one night on our next visit to Palenque. It was a lot fun to walk behind the falls but over rocks that were wet and slippery in places so you have to be... More

The natural beauty of Chiapas is just amazing. The waterfalls were just stunningly beautiful. Make sure you don't go too soon after a major downpour because the water will run muddy. You can actually go behind the waterfall, just don't get your camera wet!

Mishol-Ha has a small cavern with another small waterfall you can view for an additional 10 pesos. They give you a small flashlight, and while the fall isn't that great, it's fun to explore the cave.
