Agua Azul, Chiapas – Nearly blue water

Las Cascadas de Agua Azul means “cascades of blue water”, are the most famous waterfalls in Mexico and perhaps the most beautiful ones as well. Rio Yax plunges down several steps over wide rock stairs. Of course the water is not completely blue during rainy season, more green-brown. But the waterfalls hold a particular attraction in the jungle atmosphere anyway. We skip swimming, but it would have been possible. There are lots of souvenir and snack stands that are completely interested in Mexican tourism and that might thwart the pure nature experience. A friendly„no gracias“ instead of ignorant passing is often appreciated with a smile. The 35 Peso pp entrance fee allow in addition camping on the big parking lot, which is pretty quiet after all the excursion busses have left.
