The site is made of various beautiful cascades on different levels with teal colored water. The day we visited (Dec 28) was extremely crowded and the weather cloudy.
However, on a calm, sunny day, this place must be gorgeous!

Agua azul is a beautiful series of waterfalls. Try to avoid going after a rain as the water is less blue.

The waterfalls are nice, but don't try to compare them with Iguasu or Victoria falls. The place is nice but may be since we visited on Sunday (entrance fee is free for locals everywhere) the place was badly overcrowded. The road to the falls is serpentine, so it takes a while to get there, even though it is only 65-67 km from the Palenque ruins. If you stay overnight in Palenque it worth the visit, but if you head somewhere else afterwards combining it with the ruins might be very time consuming.

I would not say spectacular waterfalls compared to Iguazu Falls or Niagara but it was a pleasant break from all the archeological ruins and sites! Lots of shopping if you want good bargains for local arts and crafts and leather goods. I wished I bought more here because it got more expensive in Palanque and Chichen Itza!

There were lots of people swimming, but I didn't go in the waters!

We had the worst fish meal here though at one of the local restaurants. Not worth 130pesos at all. Cold bland and not palatable.

Although several cascades in the region, these ones are spectacular and singular in their type. Five or six different ones, but not easy to find them: look for a guide, quite unexpensive, 2 or 3 dlls. Worth it! Do not stay onlt with the one you'll see as entering the park, the hidden ones are must impressive.
