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

This was a nice place to visit for a short period of time. It was neat walking behind the waterfalls. If you have a choice between here and Agua Azul...go to Agua Azul.

It was a nice high waterfall, with an interesting cave. If you are around the area you better stop and have a look. Its worth it.

The falls are very pretty but the crowds are horrible on a weekend. One waits in line to do the walk under the falls and up to a cave. A ten minute stop would have been enough for me!

A quick stop and a few pictures is all you need here. We didn't have time to take a swim. Very tall waterfall with very little water. A few small restaurants looked like quality . No vendors hassling you. I wouldn't make a special trip to see this
