Beautiful waterfall and cascades in a lovely jungle setting. You only need one hour to walk up and down from the site. Longer if you wish to swim. There are market stalls set up along the track selling nice handicrafts and food.

Quite an extensive area and a beautiful waterfall. Plenty of good eating places at reasonable price, so worth staying a good while. There is a walk up the side of the waterfall with lots of offshoots to explore. Varied bathing areas to suit all requirements. When we were there it was not at all crowded and I really enjoyed the...

Scenic waterfalls on several levels so some uphill walking is required to appreciate them all. Loads of souvenir stalls, but no hassle.

Depends on the season it can be amazing or just dull, the falls are not high, but they are powerful and running all over the place, excellent to walk around them or climb, if you go in the right time the water color is unreal.

Agua Azul was enchanting. If I could do it again I would pack a bag for the day and set up shop at Swimming Oasis #2 at the top of the waterfall.

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
