Taking the Mayan route through the jungle of Chiapas, Mexico, there are two main sites that we went in search of, Agua Azul and Palenque.
We went big. After an early start time of 4:00am we left the town of San Cristobal de Las Casas in search of, Agua Azul, the legendary blue pools. A few hours drive through the forest and well, we found them! Just as emerald blue as promised! From what I have been told the pools vary in color depending on the amount of rainfall, luckily for us we got the post card version. Cascading waterfalls climb up the river, pool after pool, water fall after waterfall each as beautiful as the next. Come ready for the most surreal swim of your life.
