An average cascade with al lot of market people trying to sell all kind of stuf. The cascade is Broad and reasonable impressive, but certainly no Niagara falls! If you don't mind The market you van climb to the start of The falls.

It's some nice, but not very large waterfalls and a nice small "town" surrounding it and living from the tourism. I found it more interesting to see how people live there then the waterfalls itself, I'd say it's very nice but not worth a drive from Palenque. If your go, bring swimming clothes and insect repellent.

The whole complex is quite large, you can walk arround quite a lot there. There're 3 places you can swim in, I suggest the top 2. The water is beautiful and refreshing and there're a lot of small waterfalls to watch. We spent 3 hours there which is enought in my opinion including taking a quick bite. There're a lot... More

I have seen most of the importend waterfalls in the world, but agua azul comes for me among the top ten. Ok its not that big, but its just besutiful, sall those different cascades. Its quite touristic, but what can you do if its a beautiful place.

I did not find the road from Palenque to the waterfalls to be uncomfortably windy. The nice views help. It is quite annoying to get harassed by kids holding ropes to stop cars and sell their products though. We got stopped at least 4 times. We found it inevitable as often those who were holding the ropes were usually young... More

It really is a site to see, from the parking lot you can hear them, but once you see it for the first time it takes your breath away! Please feel free to swim, there are ropes crisscrossing all over for safety and there are local lifeguards on duty, (just don't expect no baywatch hunks) try to visit a couple... More

The cascadas were not blue, but brown since it had not rained. The road from Palenque is not very comfortable with all the speed bumps and the closer you get to the site, the more obnoxious the street vendors are. They would block the road until you bought or donated something. I can understand up to some level - they... More

Waterfalls are nice, be prepared to be assaulted by hawkers and children selling Chinese junk. Water is brown when flowing, when it is blue they have no waterfalls
