great, pretty place , a little commercialised. Not the dangerous place for swimming that Loneley Planet led us to believe, nor did we get robbed! Fabulous swimming , not overcrowded, clean water

Lovely visit to these beautiful falls. The water was clear and inviting but unfortunately we didn't have time to experience a dip. It would have been nice to find a nice cool tree and relax and enjoy the scenery, maybe on another visit.

We took the tour from Palenque to Misol Ha and Agua Azul "continuing on to San Cristobal". We booked for 9 am but had to leave at midday because there weren't enough people at 9. This is NOT a good option. There isn't enough time at Misol Ha - we were 2 people and since one has to take care... More

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
