A very nice, and refreshing place to spend a couple of hours while touring in wonderous Chiapas. Take the short hike up to the falls from the car park area, and you will finds three different trails into the waterfalls. Be sure to take the trail to the left that leads to the area behind the falling water. It is... More

The waterfall is excellent. You can't swim directly under the waterfall but you can swim in the pool beneath it(they have roped off area) There is a little cave you can check out while you are there for 10 pesos it has 2 little waterfalls not much else but its so cheap. Walking behind the waterfall is really nice too... More

The falls is Majestic and you can actually swim there! But find the path to go behind the falls and you could stay there forever, taking photos and drinking in the beauty. We were there before sundown and it was extra amazing. Caves to explore also behind falls, will do that next time we come! Worth the trip.

This isn't one of the wonders of the world, but it is beautiful. Walking behind the falls is refreshing! Also a great way to break up the 5 hour bus ride from San Cristobal to Palenque.

These waterfalls are beautiful, reminiscent of some in Hawaii. It's a short walk from the road and a welcome break if you are taking a long drive in the area.

Take your bathing suit to swim beneath the falls. A (sometimes slippery) path will lead your behind the falls for a beautiful view. You can carry on at your discretion (across water & rocks) to the upper falls.

I went to Palenque to see the ruins and knew nothing about the waterfalls before getting there, but they are definitely not to be missed. The waterfall thunders down into a lovely clear pool perfect for swimming. You can walk behind the waterfall and for a small fee explore the little cave on the other side. You are given a... More

As with Agua Azul you must pay tribute to the Zapatistas in order to get there, never mind if you agree with it or not, falls are quite small and really not worth the detour.

So beautiful and easy to walk to- intact you can walk under the falls. Don't forget to bring bathing suits so you can swim in cave behind waterfall.

Don't forget to take a bathing suite. The best part of the waterfall is walking underneath it to go to the other site. As it's quite impossible to not get wet trying to go to the other site, i'd suggest to take appropriate clothes with you.
