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.

It is a winderful place, natural wonder very well conserved. Amazing and a must do if you visit Chiapas! Clean and not expensive at all! 2 canopes 400 and 600 meters long are fun.

This place is nice! We camped in the parking lot and had the place to ourselves at night and in the morning. There are also cabanas for rent. The falls are spectacular and the river very pleasant.

This waterfall attraction is very beautiful. Lots of stairs moving up through a series of waterfalls is a bit strenuous but probably not for the younger set. Plus! You can zip-line down!

On a day long trip to the falls and Montebello lakes. The falls are clean, spotless, seemingly endless. A great guide provided gratis. We hiked to the top, incredible views and colors. A short chance to swim in chilly waters. An incredible outing! But, not...More
