BEAUTIFUL waters & falls - but it has changed (not for the better) since 1st visit --- still, worth the drive to get there; just be ready for the sales pitches from the vendors. It is a good day trip from Palenque - bring bug juice, water(or your choice of beverage) & snacks . Cool dip before the return drive... More

Definitely a great stop for a dip during the hot season. The cascades are a natural beauty to behold. There are a few restaurants which allows for replenishing your hunger and thirst. Walking along the flowing river and the many levels of cascades it is inundated with retail therapy stalls one after the other and sometimes on both sides of... More

When booking tours to Agua Azul, Misol Ha, Palenque etc. be sure and book with a company that takes credit cards so you can dispute a matter if there is an issue. We went with Tierra Maya travel in San Cristobal and sadly we had a very bad experience. We got up at 4 am to leave around 5 am... More

A nice respite while touring the area by motorcycle. The Cascadas are amazing to behold. Be prepared for a lot of vendors, many of whom offer great food at great prices.

Amaysing landscape. The water is chilled out, so I recommend to go in a sunny day. Nice experience. Good place to take cute selfies.

I do not think I have ever seen such blue water. The waterfalls were quite amazing and fun to jump off of. The water was quite refreshing to swim in especially considering the hot temperature.

We were passing through Palenque and this is one of the places we were definitely not going to miss. It's unlike anything I have seen before! The natural cascading waterfalls are amazing. You are allowed to swim in a large section of the area, and jump off the waterfalls (where appropriate). The blue water that you see in the photos... More

Had lunch and a swim here on way to SCDLC from Palenque. Lunch was average but the falls were a beautiful blue colour and we had a good swim and a water fight with locals. Worth noting we paid a first check point for adults and were informed kids were free. At a second check point an attempt was made... More

We stayed in Palenque so we found the easiest way was to take a tour in a van that included the Palenque Ruins and Agua Azul. We also stopped at Misol-Ha, another beautiful waterfall and cent to, along the way so it was a full day. The trip from Palenque is breathtaking enough but the stops were wonderful and of... More

Amazing experience.We were there for the non rain season. I heard that during rainy season the water might not be as blue. We visited with a tour, spent there only over an hour and it was NOT ENOUGH time! So figure it out, find a place to stay close to it because is amazing!
