Without doubt one of my favorite places! The place is like 30min drive from Tuxtla Gutierrez, Chiapas. There's a fb page where you can find information on how to get there or just search for it in google maps. It's in an area called "Reserva...More

This place is awesome! Do not miss it. Where else can you view such a spectacular waterfall and be able to climb around on it? We camped a couple of nights and had the whole place to ourselves. From talking with the staff, the only...More

My go to attraction for friends who visit me in Tuxtla Gutiérrez. I've been many times and have discovered many adventurous spots inside the waterfall. This is Must see but try to actually scale the waterfall instead of simply looking at it

Aguacero is one of our most favourite places in Chiapas. It is fun to walk up and down 800 steps, and go under the powerful waterfall. We go there at least once a month to admire the spectacular view of the Rio La Venta Canyon...More

Fed up by dozens of tourist buses in Palenque, Agua Azul... or worse, in Chichen Itza? Go to see Aguacero. Off highway linking Pacific Ocean and Tuxtla Gutierez, some 3-4 km dirt road (quite bad at times) will take you to simple parking lot where...More

Perhaps due to its absence from the Lonely Planet guide, and the fact that you need a car to get there, this spot is almost entirely devoid of tourists, apart from the odd Mexican family enjoying a day off. And this is paradise - rich...More
