Agua Azul Waterfalls
Meaning of the name:
Its name is attributed to the color of turquoise blue water during the summer season when there is no rain.
The river xanil that is born in the Chiapas forest opens its way through the trees until it becomes a waterfall through the rocky limestone terrain; These stones are worn by the erosion of water and dissolve in tiny particles that are washed away by the water, the sun’s rays penetrate to the depths of the waterfalls, reflecting that turquoise blue tonality that shadows the visitors.
A path that runs next to the waterfalls will guide you to the quieter pools to swim, on the tour you will find various stalls: handicrafts, homemade food, empanadas, fruit snacks, coconut drinks and lots of seasonal fruit.
Highly recommended to visit on sunny days to appreciate the impressive color, swimming pools with less current are at the top of the waterfalls.
