We went to visit the falls after a couple of days of very hard rain and they were amazing. They have a walk way that goes underneath the back but it was so much water and wind from the power we couldn't go behind it. However it isn't normally like that from the pictures we saw it was due to... More

When I went to Misol-Ha the volume of water was not very big, but that did not take away the beauty of the waterfall instead. You ccan see all its fall perfectly. The most amazing of this fall is that you can walk through a super simple trail to pass behind the waterfall and see it in this other angle.... More

Beautiful place. Nice pathway behind the waterfall and howler monkeys nearby! You need to pay two different entry fees if you drive there yourself. That is a little confusing but worth it!

This is a good place to stop and stretch your legs if you are on the road for a bit. Short stop. Beautiful falls. Too many people.

In the same area as Agua Azul but completely different, is the waterfall called Misol-Ha. The spectacular waterfall cascades into a huge, deep, green pool. It's a wonderful place for a refreshing swim and for sunbathing on the rocks. Make sure you also walk on the path that takes you under the waterfall through a cave which allows you to... More

A beautiful traditional straight up and down waterfall. You can walk all around it, which is pretty cool, although not much space so it gets crowded very easily. We didn't swim due to the weather but it looked lovely. Much smaller and very different to Agua Azul, worth a visit to both, but if you only have time for one,... More

A lovely waterfall, not too inviting to swim when there are so many people. There is a cave and an underground waterfall but there are so many people at weekends that I advise to only go inside if you can stand being in a contained space!

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.
