Agua Azul Waterfalls, Palenque

4.2
#1 of 61 in Parks in Southern Mexico
Waterfall Nature / Park
The tiered falls of Agua Azul Waterfalls feature vibrant blue water caused by high mineral content that encapsulates debris that falls in its path--trees, rocks--in limestone over time, creating rounded sandy-colored ledges. Be sure you bring your camera to capture the falls, (which mean "Blue-water falls" in Spanish) and bring your swimming gear if you'd like to take a dip. There are many stalls and vendors selling souvenirs and food here. To visit Agua Azul Waterfalls on your trip to Palenque, use our Palenque tour planner.

  • This is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. The water is amazingly clear and aqua. Swimming where the two waterfalls meet is a moving experience. So, suit up, don't just watch. 🤗
  • Amazing place to visit. Takes time to get here from main cities but totally worth it. There's a place where you can swim. Bring watershoes.
  • An excellent day trip from Palenque or on the way spot to cool off and refresh. Many many restaurant stalls and tourist amenities available. The pools are plentiful and it is possible to even find your own quiet one. We went with our dog and it was no problem.
  • Amazingly blue water. Super cold and refreshing for a hot day. Clean and peaceful
  • This is a must visit. The park is nicely laid out with trails to observation points to view the pools and waterfalls in all their blue splendor. This place in not wheelchair friendly.
