Agua Azul - Spanish for "blue water", is located, 69 kilometers from Palenque by the road that connects to San Cristóbal de las Casas.
The larger fall is 6 meters high.
The water is as blue as it looks on the pictures, only on a dry season -
- from December till March.
Bring swimwear, because it's pretty warm there and allowed to swim.
Misol-Ha Waterfall - meaning "Streaming Water in the "Chol Maya".
It is one of the Chiapas state most incredible natural wonders as the river falls off the edge of a wall and 40 meters down into a deep pool of water surrounded by lush vegetation.
A small path can take you behind the water curtain created by the waterfall where you can walk inside the caves.
