Mexico/Chiapas: Cascadas de Agua Azul

Cascadas de Agua Azul is considered the most famous waterfall in an otherwise waterfall-overloaded state of Chiapas. It’s actually not a waterfall, but a series of small rapids and pools that formed over calcified limestone edges of cataracts – the water is very high in calcium. It’s picturesque, but this ain’t something to go nuts about. It’s also a total tourist trap, with hundreds of locals and souvenirs sellers and peddlers accosting you in every possible way. And getting here also requires passing through multiple few payment checkpoints, all but the last of which are fake, made to extract money from the tourists.
