The "cascadas de agua azul" blue water falls, are around 70 km from Palenque. If you are visiting Chiapas the most intelligent route to do is after leave San Cristabal de las casas throgh the 199 road direction to Palenque and you can stop in "cataratas de agua azul" and also in cascada Misol - ha, before to arrive to Palenque.

You can swimg in "cascadas de agua azul" if you want, but only in some areas, there are other areas that are restricted and you will not allow to swimg.

This waterfall consists of many cataracts following one after another as can be seen in the first photo in the picture gallery, taken from near the top of the sequence of cascades. The larger cataracts may be as high as 6 meters (20 feet) or so. The one pictured to the right is next to the bottom of the sequence.

The water is as blue as it looks in the pictures, and has a high mineral content.People normally like to go skinny dipping near these waters Where it falls on rocks or fallen trees it encases them in a thick shell-like coating of limestone. This can be seen clearly in one of the minor falls in one of the pictures in the gallery below, where the part of a tree that leans against the waterfall is heavily coated while the part further away is not coated. Some fully coated log shapes can also be seen inside the fall in that same picture, as well as coating on the rocks.
