“great lakes offer wonderful views”
Reviewed January 15, 2014

After 20 years I came back and still consider the site wonderful. Even if it was cloudy and raining we had a great time, and great pictures. Taking a row boat to cross one of the lakes was absolutely pleasant. Locals are proud of their place ant take care of it. Lakes are clean and no motor-boats allowed , at least in 2 of the lakes we visited.
Obviously after 20 years now you can find all sort of small mom and pops which sell you local chocolate, coffee, quesadillas grilled corn and others

“Worth the visit!”
Reviewed December 31, 2013

The lagunas were wonderful - beautiful color with deep water and an opportunity to take a special wooden raft on one of the lakes - worth the visit and boat ride!

“Surreal ...”
Reviewed December 1, 2013 via mobile

One of the most beautiful places I have ever been not just in Mexico but anywhere.

You gain entry to all of the major lakes for under 5 USD. The Cinco Lagos is amazing.

Definetely worth the drive from San Cristóbal de las Casas.

“Great area”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

Loved having a tour guide to explain the lagoons to us. Too bad he did not speak English but my friend translated for me. Also enjoyed being able to cross over to Guatemala without customs. Makes a great picture to show both countries.

“very beautiful”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

The lakes are amaizing. It is very beautiful to walk around, and after everty turn you have a new lake behind the hill. The colors are very imprresive as well.

However, I went there without a tour or any car, and it wasnt a good idea. It was hard to go from one lake to the other, and not very nice. I felt like a target for the people who sales there tour or attraction, it was very hard to get some peace there.
Somebody recommnded here to go without o tour guide because of the time, but it took a lot of time to get there and to pass from one laguna to the other.

To do it alone (one person) was a little bit cheaper (like 80 pesos) but not a lot. Maybe it is different for more people...
