One of the only places in Chiapas where they are trying to put together a valuable experience for visitors. Service is great and the falls are majestic.

Two hours drive from San Cristóbal there are amazing waterfalls to see. The road is difficult and slow but it worth it. You climb the mountain for an hour and there they are. Beautiful site.
