A definite must to what is, in my opinion, the Semuc Champey of Mexico but 10 times better. Beautiful waters to swim in and it is safe to jump or slide between sections. The underwater cave is just great.

Forget about agua azul, this natural wonder is truly impressive. Beautiful clear waters, waterfalls and scenery. Much more local than any other touristy places around but it is an absolute must.
