Knowing the rainy season would make the big falls (Aqua Azule) pretty murky, we asked our hotel manager for a good place to swim near Palenque, and he recommended Roberto Barrios Falls. This was a 30 minute van ride out of town (pretty challenging to find the Roberto Barrios Van) and totally worth it. The hike down to the cascadas... More

About 45 minutes out of town on local shuttle bus. No crowds a series of about 5 or six nice falls with many swimming opportunities next to a cute little village. Very pretty.

This gem is about 45 minutes from Palenque town, at the time of writing for the price of 40mx$ with a collectivo. Be aware that there are not many collectivos going there or bringing you back. Miss the last one and you are stuck in the low profile dusty but friendly village at the entrance. We had the same driver... More

Google maps is wrong about the location of these awesome waterfalls. They are about 30 mi s from Palenque and simply incredible. Bring plenty of change with you to pay the entrance and give the children some coins for showing you around. Swimming in the pools is exhilarating.

You're surrounded by locals very humble people. The waster falls are amazing. We continued to walk further down to find a location we would be able to lay and set our things down. The pools that are created between waterfalls are the perfect place to swim.

Many people will visit Agua Azul since this is offered by most tour operators, and the only fall discussed in the Lonely Planet. However it is worth to avoid the tourist crowds and visit the waterfalls of Roberto Barrios instead. When we visited the falls last month we haven't seen a single tourist, and we had a great time together... More

Very small indigenous town, or pueblita in state/region of Chiapas, Mexico. This small village has group of blue waterfalls and tourism is just pitching into this beautifull place. Remeber it is very small village - no place to stay or to buy items. So you need to bring all your food, and plan to leave back Palenque town by evening.... More

My friends and I booked a tour with a guy (like a taxi driver) that took us there and helped us during the whole morning to discover and explore this incredible place. It was the best place I visited in Chiapas. I totally encourage you to explore all the falls nearby and jump into the water. it was amazing. I'd... More
