Don’t forget to bring a swimsuit! I didn’t and I regret it. The view is amazing and if you can refresh yourself by getting into the water you should!

We used Mayatur.com to get from our hotel to the Cascadas and are so glad we did. The roads to get there are very curvy and it's at least an hour from the city center of Palenque. The falls themselves are beautiful. We did not...More
