Cascadas de Agua Azul

The Cascadas de Agua Azul (Spanish for “Blue-water Falls”) are a series of waterfalls found on the Xanil River in the Chiapas, Mexico. These waterfalls consists of many cataracts following one after another, taken from near the top of the sequence of cascades. The larger cataracts may be as high as 6 meters (20 feet) or so. During much of the distance the water descends in two streams, with small islands in the middle. The water has a high content of calcium carbonate and other minerals, and where it falls on rocks or fallen trees it encases them in a thick shell-like coating of limestone.

Local residents reportedly restored the waterfalls after the 2017 Chiapas earthquake changed the course of the river and led to a temporary reduction of the water flow over the falls.
