We stopped in Misol-Ha after a long drive from Las Guacamayas to Palenque. We had done Agua Azul a couple of years ago (very impressive) so decided this for a refreshing swim. Simple waterfall but with a great swimming hole with clean and clear water. The cave behind the main waterfall is great as well with a small internal waterfall.... More

I really think this is a beautiful place but it is not something to do on its own. There are cabins but it is so humid I couldn't imagine staying in the cabins.

You have to visit this site when in Chiapas, it is so beautiful. Waterfall is impressive, vegetation, the sounds of the water and birds... you can safely walk "behind" the waterfall and had a once in a lifetime experience.

You can walk around behind the waterfall and for $10 pesos you can walk into a cave where you can see an inside waterfall, stalactites, and stalagmites. You can also swim here. I recommend stopping here, walking around behind the waterfall, then heading on to swim at Aqua Azul.

This is often packaged with a trip to the Palenque ruins and Agua Azul. Alone it's not worth it, but it's a nice spot if you're already going to the others.

Very easy to get to, just a 2 minute walk from the parking lot. Bring a swimsuit so you can go swimming while you enjoy the beautiful waterfall.

We vistied this waterfall during the second week of June, 2016, and it is a beautiful site. To get to the falls, though, you must pay a toll to use the road, which I thinks was 20 pesos per person. The entrance to the falls is nominal and if you decide that you want to explore the cave with the... More

To get here with no tours it is not to difficult, just wait for a collectivo at Palenque near the "Mayan head" in front of the ADO bus station. Just bargain the one way..30 mxp I paid, maybe you can get a better deal;) The collectivo will leave you at a croassroad and then you have to walk for 3... More
