Be sure you bring your camera to capture the falls, (which mean "Blue-water falls" in Spanish) and bring your swimming gear if you'd like to take a dip. There are many stalls and vendors selling souvenirs and food here. Agua Azul Waterfalls is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , custom trip planner Edition.

  • What a great place With some hesitation we took the guided tour and had an amazing time. With out the guided tour you will miss 90% of the place. Our guide Misael was amazing.
