  • A very nice place, spectacular nature. You have to walk a little in slope up to reach the place of the waterfall, it is not heavy and worthwhile. Perhaps for a person more not to be so easy. In some parts a bit slippery. On the rise accompanied us a guide who was talking to us the details of the place. Moreover, an "expert" (at least behaved as such) taking pictures, knows well the ideal places for photos. Your tour ends when you reach the waterfall. It does not have a fixed cost, you have to give a tip. With us did well, because it was friendly and be out much. It lowered it can make in Tyrolean by $180. The experience is worth it!

  • It is advisable to arrive via Comitan although it is a little longer but the road is in better shape than the direct of Tuxtla Gutierrez. There are 2 accesses to the waterfall each with different views, both excellent, both have canopy. You should carry the camera and cell phones are protected with plastic bag because nears one much water fall and you may get wet. On arrival, there are guides who offer their services. HIGHLY recommended to use them since they have given a very extensive explanation, as well as experienced photographers (to avoid the selfie). Do not have a fee, so I suggest to leave a GOOD TIP, they deserve it. You should make a stop at the restaurant of the place to eat a snack, since the walk is long. Somewhere you can buy water or soda. Where there is overnight, the inconvenience for the adventurous is that there is no way to make the night tour, you should go get permission and go with a guide. I'll be back for two reasons: to visit the other side of waterfalls and at another time that is not rainy, to see the blue of the water.

  • Really nice set waterfalls. The largest one is at the end of the road and has a panaromic view. You can enter the water in some places, to enjoy cold water in scroaching heat, specially during the summer season. Have to trek up various points, to reach the final waterfall
  • Sorprendente
  • Beautiful place. Must see if your in the area.
  • Have two options, you can upload of the side this u West of the cascade but not change you. East side you arrive right in front of the waterfall in a vantage point where the fall breeze refreshes you. The highest viewpoint is to see the waterfall on the wedding veil. West side can reach a vantage point to see top down the waterfall Wedding Veil. There is that climb almost 1 km of stairs well Miss to dwell the waterfall veil of bride. It is an ecological park. You can swim, you can roast your own flesh, there are cabins for sleeping. Plenty of parking. Baths in different part of the ascent.
