“Bright blue agua”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

Gloriously brilliant blue falls, at a reasonably close distance to the Palenque ruins. I heard that the water in the days before I went was quite dull due to recent rainfall, though it is more often as beautiful as the pictures you see than not. Just be aware when planning what day you go - you want calm weather and a blue sky!

“A beautifull and incredble site”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

I have seen pictures and heard a lot about this place, but when you see it it is something undescribable, i`s just beautiful, so many falls, and the color of the water is incredible a clear turquoise, unseen in other places, very highly recomended, un fortunately is a bit far. Its worth to take a deep in them. But our gide said that during the rainy season the weater turns murky, so avoid this place at that time.
Also nearbay ys a beautifull waterfall called misol-ha its also worth to visit and swim in it

“Amazing Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

It is just beautiful, lush, exotic. A little busy, but still enjoyable. Best time to go is between December and February. Make sure no rain is in the forecast or you won't enjoy its beauty, since rains will stir up the waters. Good places to eat, nice spots to take a dip. Totally recommended

“Beautiful but don't bother bringing your bathing suit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

The falls are truly beautiful, a clear turquoise cascading from far up the mountain. The pathway along the falls and the terraces with benches for viewing are well shaded by trees and very welcoming. To your left as you ascend are plenty of craft stalls and eateries, but the falls create a white noise that allows for few distractions. We climbed until we could go no further without paying an additional fee. We were disappointed in the bathing area. We had seen a photo of a woman swimming just below the actual falls, but in fact the area that is strictly marked off for bathing is murky, still, and only thigh deep. If you are not a child or a hippopatamus, you will probably not want to swim here. If you do though, and you have not brought a swim suit, there are plenty of shorts and tee-shirts for sale. We had to pay 3 times: to enter the short road leading to the site, to enter the site, and to park. Then it was quite clear that you'd better tip the young man who waved you into the parking spot. Bathrooms, I believe, must be paid for as well.
