Chiapas, San Cristobal and Palenque: Swim in the Agua Azul waterfalls

Swim in the Agua Azul waterfalls

Agua Azul is a watery wonderland where foaming cascades splash into a series of dazzling turquoise pools enclosed by abundant woodland. It's an idyllic scene which almost begs you to get in and swim.

The falls are usually combined with a visit to Misol Ha, a 30m flume of water tumbling from a sheer cliff face into a sublime amphitheatre of rock.
