Cabanas here are comfortable, sleep 5, have kitchens, and a view out the window of the waterfall. In my opinion it's a bargain for about US$40 per night. We spent 4 nights here and this is the place to come to immerse yourself in beautiful jungle in relative comfort with a massive natural swimming hole available day or night. From our cabana we saw toucans, trogon, motmot, parrots, and were awakened by howler monkeys. This is about a half-hour drive to Palenque to the East and to Agua Azul to the West.The food at the restaurant is very good too, and after about 5:00 we had the this entire beautiful place to ourselves. I long to return here some day!

The only drawback is the service. We ran out of propane and asked to swap with one of the empty cabanas, but we were told they were all "full". Power was lost to the entire property for 2 days while we were here. Not the fault of Misol-ha, but no offers of discounts for the hassle either.

Our tour group stopped here following our visit to Aqua Azul. It was a nice location with rainforest surrounding the waterfall and lagoon. There is a short walk down to the base of the waterfall and the path is fairly safe, though there are parts to watch and especially near the waterfall, which you can walk behind of, which is mossy.

A few people swam at this location, the length and breadth of this swimming hole is quite vast, so ropes have been strung across it, so swimmers can have a rest.

There appears to be cabins you can stay in and there is also a restaurant on site.

It was a nice side trip on our way to Palenque.

It doesn't seem like a big waterfall but it has a lot of charm...
it feels like a secret place, hidden in the mountain, and there are some smalls cabins to spend the night if you want...

i would just stop here for an hour and move on to other places in chiapas :)

If you are visiting Palenque, it is nice to have a look at this waterfall, too. There is nothing special to see if you have visited for instance Niagara or Victoria falls. But as said: "It is a nice stop and go object".

We took some photos from an overlook in front of the falls. Maybe it was the lighting, but the photos came out incredibly well.
There are two tolls - one for the road right when you turn in and a second closer to the falls. That was a little irritating and l wondered if there would be a third toll - there wasn't.
