This is one of the most beautiful places in the entire area. You can get in the water and it is an incredible place for photos. There is also a very modest place to stay and plenty of food.

This is very much a local resort with cordoned areas for swimming. The waters are just mesmerizing to behold. There is a fun little food and collectibles market nearby...Get the empanadas!

The waterfalls were so full the day we visited and it was spectacular to see. It was raining but still we had a fantastic day. Our guide Christian explained everything really well and was very easy going. Well worth seeing this place.

We drove our own car. Always pay only against the ticket! Never give money to somebody who has no tickets. Number of persons = number of tickets you receive. Everyone here will be trying to cheat you. Waterfalls are great, water is clean.

I went swimming in this waterfall but found the current very strong. The water was clear and comfortable to swim in. Just the right way too cool off on a hot day. Many venders with booth selling all kinds of trinkets and souvenirs. The parking...More

These falls are quite spectacular, even after rain and they are not as blue as usual. The walk from the car park to the falls is quite short. There are a series of lookout points as you walk up into the park. There was no...More

If this is your first trip to Chiapas, don't make the mistake we made, do NOT make a reservation in Tuxtla for your entire stay. Stay at hotels as you go...because the distances, though google maps shows they are short in kilometers/miles, the actual time...More
