Make sure you allow for a few hours of swimming with a natural back massage from the waterfalls. I loved it.

I would advise a week day visit if possible. We went on a Saturday and it was packed. The falls are worth seeing but the crowds and souvenir stands, lack of cleanliness take away from the experience. We arranged a "tour" through our hotel which was transportation only. Four hours at this spot was too much time

Me and a friend took a tour here, one of 3 stops. This was my favorite. Very pretty, lots of waterfalls. It also allows you to swim. A much needed cool dip. Nice souvenirs but too many shops

I loved the the cascades in its various shades of blues and greens depending on the sun and underground. There are plenty of places to eat and drink, enough parking space. I disliked perhaps the road which can be a little intimidating, many curves and narrow.

first, on the way to Aqua Azul we were literally held up on the road somewhere near a small village. Men had blocked the road with logs and demanded a "fee" . Our offer of 20 pesos was rejected but 50 pesos (about $3.25 U.S.) was accepted. Outrageous! But Aqua Azul was a delight once we got there. It was... More

You already know it's an amazing place. The water is beyond gorgeous and to swim with it rushing past you it truly an experience not to be missed. The downside is the literally hundreds of little stalls and people rushing up to you at every turn. Also, on the drive down to the falls, you will likely be stopped by... More

I went here in October from San Cristobal. It would have been more fun if I wasn't too cold to get in the water. It was lovely!
