These falls are simply stunning. When we went there the water was the most amazing blue colour. A photographers delight. Great spot for a picnic and a swim and just soak in the natural beauty. The road to get there is very long and windy with hundreds of speed humps in the road . Not an easy trip for those... More

These waterfalls are totally different from others. Especially at the lower part, where they form many pools with smooth edges where you may take a bath or just lay - some of them are deep, another one shallow. (they remind me pictures of Pink / White Terraces near Rotorua, NZ). The public beach (just under main waterfalls) might be crowded,... More

This place you must visit... it has a singular view because of the chemical in the water they are blue but not like ocean, it seems to be a gouache tint! You can go in the beggining of the cascade and jump in the water where it is cleaner.

Wonderful place. I had never the chance to see such a place. You have to go in all the place, climb and see the different areas to have a wonderful panorama. Food at restaurant in the area is bad. Our guide became sick ! Pity that there are so many souvenirs shops on the walk to reach the top.

We were very happy to visit Agua Azul with blue water during our stay in juli because it could turn brown during rainy season. You won't be alone on the site of Agua Azul because a lot of tourists and Mexicans come there. The way from Palenque to Agua Azul is long (66 km) with a lots of toppes and... More

Hesitatad after our visit to Misol-Ha to go, because Misol Ha totally swept us away, because of its beauty and lack of mass tourism. But we were not disappointed. Atmittedly, the circus you run into from the parking right up to the falls is off putting, but when you enter the raft (haggle a bit for this tour!) you are... More

A series of cascades spread over several hundred metres of very blue water. The water was warm, unlike the mountain streams I'm used to. Lots of scope for swimming, floating over small cascades, or just relaxing in a restaurant with spectacular views.

I went here in May 2013 and it was an amazing experience. I am not by any means a strong swimmer and there are ropes in the water to guide to from one side to the other. This was handy as not many people go to the central rocks(you will understand if you go), creating an amazing opportunity for wicked... More
