This waterfall is the type you would expect to see in the movies. In fact I'm surprised it hasn't been been used for movie locations. It's a stunning , very high waterfall that is breathtaking to watch. Love that you can walk behind it and around into the cave on the far side. Wear good footwear as it can be... More

The waterfalls of Mishol-Ha are lovely, especially during the rainy season when the water cascades down with incredible force. We especially liked going behind the falls to photograph them from behind.

Totally different than Agua Azul, excellent view and very nice spot to take pictures. High waterfall, you may walk behind it up to small cave (additional fee) at the end of the path. The path itself is very narrow, sometimes slippery, and later run over stones and in some places goes through streams, so have a proper shoes. In season... More

We went here on a tour and did not get to spend as much time here as we would have liked, so if you have time, dedicate at least 1/2 a day here. You start by walking down a path in the jungle to the falls. You can go down for a swim or you can take the trail that... More

WOW. A proper waterfalll - not like Aqua Azul, which is a set of cascades (still beautifull and totaly worth seeing). You can take a lot of pictures there but watch out for the mist as it can get your camera wet. There is a place where You can't pass without getting Your feet wet but come on it's so... More

So high, so beautiful. The visit is Worth to go back of the fall. Take some time to see, and relax. Not so crowded, so even better at those first days of July.

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: (!!!)

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.
