  • Quite nice but more as a photo we wanted to do here then also. A waterfall is easy and you can iterate through it on a solid path.

  • Beautiful waterfall, cool that you can walk through, but you have it in an hour. We also went to the Roberto Barrios waterfalls, which we found more enjoyable. Not so touristy and several lakes that are connected to each other with waterfalls. Great for an afternoon of relaxing and beautiful water for swimming.

  • Good some find it very beautiful... and it is but after... Very touristy, not so big, one place, the restaurant next door is bad! In short, compared to Niagara in the better yet, iguazu, it's not a must!

Where to stay in Palenque

Most travelers visit Palenque to explore the adjacent Mayan ruins, so most accommodations sit close to the archaeological site. If you choose to stay there, you'll be surrounded by jungle, so bring appropriate clothing and insect repellent, and prepare to pay a bit more for food and drink at the restaurant attached to your digs. If the conveniences of modern society appeal more to you, opt for the city center, or look for rooms in the adjoining neighborhoods of Santa Cruz or La Canada.
