Agua Azul Waterfalls, Palenque

(4.2/5 based on 1,800+ reviews on the web)
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 really is a beautiful place, you can go up all the waterfalls, an incredible turquoise blue. Recommended, not to go on Easter or bridges and not otherwise rainy season you play a Brown waterfalls, the beauty of this place is the turquoise contrast with the green of the dense jungle. More early you get better, give you more time touring this place without so many people and the rest of the day you can enjoy swimming, you can find posts of meals, drinks and local crafts, please avoid leave your garbage.

  • Zamechatenoe place in the mountains and jungles. Very beautiful waterfall far away from civilization. The only problem is the roads, and locals who are blocking the road.

  • During our drive for Mexico we stopped for a few hours in this magical place. A walking path absolutely not demanding where in addition to the beautiful nature you can stop at relax to aim the various waterfalls or to bathe in the innumerable puddles. The water and the green have amazing colors.

  • 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.
  • If you go in summer, water will be blue. Awesome blue
  • Great place. It is very nice not only because of nice pictures. You can also experience light blue water by yourself :). There is occasion for hiking along the river to see more views on this place. Local people are very nice and the souvenirs they offer (huge variety of different stuff) are in good prices. It is good to visit this place by colectivo on a way Palenque San Cristobal de las casas. For sure worth visiting!
  • The weather was not ideal (middle September) but the waterfalls are nice. The place is a little bit dirty, plastic bottles and cans everywhere. Which I felt was a disappointment, you would like to visitors and people living around to take good care of the space. All the shops and restaurants have the same offering (same price and food).
  • Nice series of cascades. Water certainly wasn't blue when I was there. Depends on the rain upstream muddying the water.
