agua azul waterfalls chiapas

Agua Azul Falls are in the Mexican state of Chiapas. They are located 69 kilometers from Palenque on the road to San Cristobal de las Casas.

This cascade consists of many cataracts following one by one, as seen in the first photo in the photo gallery, taken from the top of the sequence of waterfalls. The greatest cataracts can be up to six meters (20 feet) or less.

The water is as blue as seen in the pictures, and has a high mineral content content.People normally like to go skinny dipping in the waters near where it falls on rocks or fallen trees wrapped in a thick shell of stone limestone. This can be clearly seen in one of the lowest falls in one of the images in the gallery below, which is strongly part of a tree that was leaning against the cascade coated while the far side is not coated. Some fully enclosed registration forms can also be seen inside the fall in the same image as the coating on the rocks.

For much of the distance the water falls into two streams, with small islands in the middle.

This stunning series of beautiful waterfalls are formed down the Rio Tulijá in stages, creating a series of ponds or natural ponds that are contained by limestone dikes, the so-called "gours" in geological terms.

The intense turquoise color they have is unique.


Chiapas is a state that is located southeast of Mexico, bordering Veracruz, Tabasco, Oaxaca, the Pacific Ocean and the Republic of Guatemala.

If you arrive in Tuxtla Gutierrez, the state capital, either by air or land, take the road to San Cristobal de las Casas and then go in the direction of Palenque, before reaching the city, find the diversion that will take you to this wonderful natural attraction.
