The best Waterfalls spots of Chiapas


There are waterfalls of all heights and shapes, from towering waterfalls like Maíz Blanco to small ones that don’t even have a name. Hidden amidst the foliage or descending from the mountains, there are waterfalls that fall smoothly, turning into clouds, and others that burst thunderously in the middle of the jungle: its flow is like a liquid fire that sprays us and hypnotically steals our gaze. Let us tell you more about some of the waterfalls that you can find on your next expedition to Chiapas.

Las Nubes Waterfalls

These waterfalls are hidden by the limits of the Lacandon Jungle and the Montes Azules Biosphere Reserve. Their name comes from the breeze created by the numerous waterfalls of the Santo Domingo River.

You have to take a few minutes to contemplate the spectacle. The best place to do it is a picturesque suspension bridge that crosses over the deep canyon. If you walk through the jungle, you can climb up to a lookout point, from which you can see the river flowing into the Montes Azules Biosphere.

Misol Ha- Waterfalls

Twenty kilometers away from Palenque, where this beautiful waterfall rises to a height of approximately 30 meters, forming a large pool in its descent where it is possible to bathe. It has a grotto you can reach by a walkway that passes behind the great curtain of water.

Inside the cave, a water source creates a stream that falls into the main pool. Surrounded by the high tropical jungle that characterizes the Chiapas highlands, this landscape is ideal for taking incredible pictures.
