OK I admit I've seen the Iguazu Falls in full gush so find most other waterfalls a 'trickle'! Having admitted this - the Misol Ha was pretty - a single giant tap of fall falling into a clear turquiose pool. You can walk around the back of the falls. Wear good non slip shoes as sometimes the path is slippery... More

We have been to Cascada Misol Ha in the past and wanted to return and stay there in one of the cottages they rent. The current cost of a cottage rental is 400 pesos per night and it is absolutely worthwhile. The cottage we rented was for three people and we had plenty of hot water and the most relaxing... More

I was not sure if giving 5 stars or 4, why? The place is beautiful, fulfilling indeed, but I tried to put everything in perspective and the Cascadas de Agua Azul are way more beautiful than this place and if I give 5 to there, it's unfair to give the same score. Now, if I was not sure about the... More

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
