Took a collectivo there from Palenque (recommend this rather than a tour, you can also take one to the ruins. I prefer to be on my own so I don't have to try and find the tour etc.) it was an hour and a half each way of rollercoaster! The roads are so windy. Once you get dropped off you... More

Beautiful water falls, definitely one of natures wonders, amazing for swimming or sight seeing and hiking Located on a really poor community, which has cause locals to find a way to profit from it and kind of destroys the magic of the place. Definitely worth going, specially on week days to avoid big crowds

I've been here twice now - once in 2010 and again in March 2017. It's beautiful, but now saturated with craft stalls and restaurants that have extended a large way up the cascades since I was last here. I would encourage you to keep walking right until the very end (there is a sign saying go no further) because right... More

The drive to Agua Azul is long and you have to drive through little villages but worth it! You can swim below the waterfalls. The water is a little cold but we loved it!

The colure of the water when we visited was pretty amazing, the cascades looked good and made great photos. Lots of opportunities to buy souvenirs and food. Some people did have aswim.

Agua Azul is one of the most popular location after the ruins of Palenque. The road to get this place is full of kids with a rope to close the road and asking you money. Don't be afraid, these people don't ask for nothing, they usually sell you something and always up to 20 pesos. This is nothing, and the... More

Beautiful waterfalls surrounded by dense forest/jungle. The waters are crystal clear and range from rapid waterfalls, to bubbling brooks, to calm lagoons perfect for wading in. The weather was very warm and muggy when I went, and the water was the perfect way to cool off! Lots of merchandise vendors, and places to get drinks and food, and even a... More
