Highly recommended when in the Palenque region!

I loved these falls much more than Aguas Azul. We visited in Jan 2015 and the falls were RAGING. It was truly unlike any waterfalls I had ever seen before...absolutely... read more

If you have never seen a waterfall I suppose this would be impressive. Being a big hiker from Utah I have seen many more impressive falls that didn't cost me anything to get to. We had to pay for transportation, entrance to the park and entrance to the falls. They charge extra if you want to go to the cave.

Seriously ... you take money for the road to the waterfall and entry fee ? May I make a proposal, you should also add a fee to the parking lot ... Holy crab. Beside that, the waterfall is nice a great place to come and stay a while... And since you have to pay the money as stated above, you... More

I loved these falls much more than Aguas Azul. We visited in Jan 2015 and the falls were RAGING. It was truly unlike any waterfalls I had ever seen before...absolutely inspiring! Be prepared to get wet if you want to get up close. You have the opportunity to walk behind the falls, and do it! What a special place...!

A beautiful waterfall, +100 ft. drop. Very much a tourist destination, can get crowded with tour buses.

This place feels underrated to me. EVeryone was suggesting we only spend 20 minutes here, but you coul really enjoy an afternoon picnic here. I loved it and would go back any day. You can go here after you visit palenque if you are heading back to san cristobal, its on the way!

If I had to choose between going to the Misol-Ha Waterfall and Agua Azul, I would definitely chose the latter. This is much more beautiful than the Agua Azul (which is not blue at all). There I quite a trek to get to the waterfall and it is very beautiful when you get to it. Do take care however when... More

After a great morning at the Palenque ruins we drove to Agua Azul, and then to Misol-Ha. Easy, well marked drive, but be prepared to be stopped along the way by people asking/demanding money to pass on a public road. We were traveling with our dog, so when this happened I would give them 10 pesos, and lower the back... More

Lovely waterfall with cold water to swim in. Not so busy if you visit early in the morning. You can rent life jackets and there is a restraint and shop.

You don’t need to choose between Misol-ha and Agua Azul, you can do both in just one afternoon, after visiting Palenque ruins during the morning. Bothj are different and interesting. If you spend 40 to 60 minutes in Misol-ha, is enough. The main attraction there is the spectacular 35 meters high waterfall, with so much water that makes you feel... More

There was a problem with our tour and we had to stay more than 2 hours in this place, there is nothing to do. Sincerely the waterfall is not that amazing and the only thing left to do was to swim or eat
