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.

The most well known waterfalls near Palenque are Agua Azol and Misol Ha. If you want a rather different experience, try Cascada de Roberto Barrio. About 45 minutes from town on a winding mountain road, it is set in natural jungle and is pretty much...More

I almost don't want to write a review, as it's under the radar on the tourist trail. This is a great place to visit to swim in the water and even better, get the locals to take you water fall jumping. The guys that took...More

These waterfalls were beautiful! My friends and I had such a great time! Water temp was great in December. The waterfalls are not huge from a height perspective, but certainly from a width and length perspective, i.e. there were numerous falls, working their way down-river....More

We combined Barrios with Azul. 1) don’t believe people who say Barrios is as beautiful as Azul. It’s not, Azul is more impressive. But Barrios is also really really beautiful 2) Barrios is in no way as touristic as Azul. No stalls or restaurants here,...More

If you are there (and are a good swimmer), ask the service of the local guides for some tip, and you will have fun! They will guide you through the different levels of the waterfalls, jumping from the rocks to the pools below. Excellent adventure!
