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.

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.
