The site of the Usumacinta River and the Lacandon jungle, near the Mexico-Guatemala border, is peppered with dozens of waterfalls. However, Agua Azul Waterfalls has to account for the most majestic and beautiful of all these falls. Located some 40 miles from the city of Palenque in the Mexican state of Chiapas, Agua Azul is an exciting fall to watch both in the dry season and during the monsoons.
It is generally considered safe to swim in the water pool formed at the base of the fall as well as at some other areas higher up the cascades. However, you must heed the signs before you take a dip in the waters since some areas contain underneath rip currents and you don't want to go swimming in such places!
