Try to get a guide. We got one of the owners to go with us. He showed us three caves that no-one else seemed to know about. Women, wear shorts over your bikini bottom to prevent scraping on the last slide.

After an early morning two-hour hike through the Top Che jungle at Lacondon (Montes Azules ecological reserve) and a visit to the Bonapak ruins, we had a refreshing afternoon dip in the numerous waterfalls and clear pools of Cascada de Roberto Barrios. A must swim...More

We visited after spending the morning at the Palenque Ruins, so it was great to come somewhere cool and enjoy the natural beauty of the cascades. These were a series of cascades, with limestone rocks and green water flowing over the different levels. The water...More

Magnificent waterfalls everywhere, jungle all over the place and local guides very friendly and helpful. You walk through the jungle and don’t stop being surprised by the (at least) 5 different waterfalls you find. The water is pristine and the scenes are gorgeous!! A must...More

We decided to skip Agua Azul because there was a road block that was taking advantage of tourists on the way there. We are so glad that we did! These waterfalls are frequented mostly by locals, and they are spectacular. Layer after layer of waterfalls...More

No words can express how beautiful this place is. Surprising to know that not much pictures nor videos have been taken from this place. Would love to see someone use a drone to capture its immense beauty.

When we decided to go, we had no idea what to expect, but were so glad we went. The waterfalls themselves are amazing to look at, with multiple levels cascading down and the water has an incredible azure colour. Take swimwear so that you can...More
