The cascada el chiflon or also known as Velo de Novia is a must see when visiting San Cristobal. One the way up you'll encounter many different smaller waterfalls, and the last one absolutely amazing. In our tour it included a tour guide, which was not really necessary although he was the nicest guy, and a great photographer. It's about... More

It's a fantastic waterfall. We visited in March with a tour from San Cristobal de las Casas and there was lots of water. Climate was great. There is a 1 km walk up to the second (and main) waterfall and you can bath and enjoy a canopy ride more at for kids and adults. Must go if you are around.... More

Such a beautiful waterfall, trail to explore. There was food shacks, cabin accommodations, swimming in the river, etc. It may be a big trek to the top, but you can always zip line 3/4 of the way back down, and for only 250 pesos!!! We went on a cloudy day, was perfect!

One of the most beautiful waterfalls I've ever seen... It's so tall I had to shoot it as a panoramic to get the entire height of it in one picture. Real easy to get to by car and not too far of a drive from Tuxtla or San Cris. Plus it's a nice easy walk up to the bottom of... More

The Cascadas El Chiflon are simply amazing. Roads in Chiapas are not the best, so the trip from bigger cities such as Tuxtla or San Cristobal can be tiersome, but once you are there is completely worth it. The way up to the furthest waterfall is about 30-40 min, but there are several waterfalls that make the walk a nice... More

I am a frequent traveler, and I can honestly say this is one of the most beautiful places in the world. It is breathtaking, lovely and full of nature. The cascade is amazing!! January is a great month to visit because the color of the water is blue and sooo clear!

This is one of the most amazing falls I ever seen. The turquoise colour of the water is beautiful and you can even swim there. I recommend going during November-February so that you can appreciate the beautiful colour of the water. Some people say that getting to the last fall may be tiring but I don't think so, it is...

It is really awesome. There's a lot of stairs to walk and it's also very hot but worth everything. Definitely a place worth going to.
