The waterfall of Misol-ha has become one of the images of Chiapas. His jump of 30 meters on a pool of water makes it a great stop on your way to rest and take a bath.

A Misol-há, waterfall in maya cho'l, it happens to him as Blue water: part of its fame is due to its proper location. If you travel to Chiapas the safest thing is that you take the tortuous road that links Palenque y San Cristóbal de las Casas, a trip of about 4 hours that unites the two strongest destinations in Chiapas.

Walk by waterfall Misol-há

The interesting thing you can do here are two ways. One takes you behind the waterfall, the road leads you to a grotto. It is impressive to go behind the curtain of water, especially in the rainy season. The other way goes up more than 700 meters to the viewpoint that will give you another view of the place. I never did it, and I think it must be a good walk.

Accelerated excursions You usually leave 45 minutes in the place. I think it is not the best way to enjoy it, but enough to know the place, take the path that goes behind the waterfall and take a quick bath.

A good option in Misol-há is to stay in the cabins that the Maya Chols run. Having the waterfall for you alone in the morning is priceless.
