Beautiful spot with a path all around the back of the waterfall. Option to get to the far side but you will get a bit wet and it is slippier towards the end. Quite busy as the area is small and there was even a queue for the best photo spot. We took a joint tour with Agua Azul and... More

Perfect place to laze around swim and admire the beautiful waterfall. We hired a local minivan and driver to take us around the area for the afternoon.

Pretty easy to get there, lots of parking, $25 per person, children are free, and then... Among the trees you see this white tall cloud with an emerald green pool at the bottom, it seems big enough until you reach the water, it's super high, so much that you only see dots of people behind and around it. Once you... More

Mishol-Ha is an impressive Waterfall. You can make nice pictures in front of it and even walk behind it. Definitely worth a visit as part of a combined tour or if it is on your way.

This is a nice waterfall - that's all. This place is hugely Overated, in comparison to Agua Azul the place is a dump. 1 waterfall barely place to swim and just an overall shabby look. Recommend skipping it and going straight to Agua Azul.

this is the first water fall on the right going from palenque to ococingo, it doue not have the grandeur of it's close neighbour AGUA AZUL, but it has a more shy and misterious character. it is very impressing tall and narrow streams, and a very nice attraction, of getting behind the waterfalls to the hidden cave and watch the...

I have visited many waterfalls before, from Arizona to Hawaii, often requiring long muddy walks... Mishol-Ha was by far the easiest to reach. We visited the Falls on the way to Palenque. I was surprised to find a short paved walkway for tourists. Don't get me wrong, I love hikes through nature but this one was fantastic because I was... More

Cascadas Misol Ha is one high beautiful waterfall. They charge a $30 pesos fee to enter the "park". There is only one restaurant inside, and it is not veeery cheap but the food is good. I recommend to wear tennis because first you can walk behind and around the waterfall. Also, if you can, take with you $10 pesos ton... More

This waterfall ... what can I say . I thought I was dreaming. I was yelling, crying, etc. I was so happy ...... This is the real nature, you can actually walk behind the waterfall and swim in the bottom of it. My english is not the best ! but this place is a dream
