This place is awesome! Do not miss it. Where else can you view such a spectacular waterfall and be able to climb around on it? We camped a couple of nights and had the whole place to ourselves. From talking with the staff, the only really busy day is Sunday. There is a cool cave with a river running thru... More

My go to attraction for friends who visit me in Tuxtla Gutiérrez. I've been many times and have discovered many adventurous spots inside the waterfall. This is Must see but try to actually scale the waterfall instead of simply looking at it

Aguacero is one of our most favourite places in Chiapas. It is fun to walk up and down 800 steps, and go under the powerful waterfall. We go there at least once a month to admire the spectacular view of the Rio La Venta Canyon and to relax in the river beneath the waterfall. It is not very touristy like... More

It took us a little while to find the place as we were driving from Tuxtla Gutierrez and couldn't find directions easily online. The best thing is to stay on highway 190 West around the outside of Ocozocoautla and you will eventually see the signs, (don't go through town as there are no signs or markers for it) and then...

This place is a 15 minute drive off the main highway on 'terraceria' and split lane cement driveway. We paid $30 pesos p/p to enter the park Paid $100 peso deposit for our trash (we got it back before we left by showing them our empty water bottles). The entrance to this 'Centro Ecoturistico' is on the ledge of a... More

This place truly is off the beaten path though you can either book a tour from Tuxtla or take a public bus to Coita and then a collectivo to the crossing for the Cascadas.you then enjoy a 3 km hike to the entrance of the Aguacero. (The entry fee was 27 Pesos when I went there) The Aguacero has a... More

Fed up by dozens of tourist buses in Palenque, Agua Azul... or worse, in Chichen Itza? Go to see Aguacero. Off highway linking Pacific Ocean and Tuxtla Gutierez, some 3-4 km dirt road (quite bad at times) will take you to simple parking lot where you will pay entry fee. From there you walk some 700 or 800 steps down... More

Perhaps due to its absence from the Lonely Planet guide, and the fact that you need a car to get there, this spot is almost entirely devoid of tourists, apart from the odd Mexican family enjoying a day off. And this is paradise - rich waterfalls that you can climb, hidden island beachers, Chiapanecan forest through the cascades and swimming... More
