Create an itinerary including Agua Azul Waterfalls
The tiered falls of Agua Azul Waterfalls feature vibrant blue water caused by high mineral content that encapsulates debris that falls in its path--trees, rocks--in limestone over time, creating rounded sandy-colored ledges. 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.

  • 5 stars and a Wow. Worth the horrible bus ride. There are many places to eat. You can swim in a small area of the waterfalls. There are several stalls that sell t shirts and other mementos
  • The falls are just about picture perfect. However, it's very commercialized. There's a fee (that only tourists in rental cars have to pay!?) to enter the town and there are tons of vendors all along the falls. Even the people who point to where you're already about to jump in and tells you it's ok, want to be paid (they ask politely and are very friendly though). Definitely worth a visit, but it's a good idea to be prepared.
