El Chiflón Waterfall Tours

The relatively flat trails, lush countryside, well-kept picnic areas and crystal clear waters of the 100-meter El Chiflon Waterfall offer travelers in search of a city escape a natural wonderland in which to relax and unwind. Visitors can wander pathways to four different levels of El Chiflon—each more impressive than the last—and look out over vast landscapes while listening to the sounds of thundering waters. And while lower level trails prove an easy walk, be advised they do become steeper. Intrepid travelers can zip line past the lower falls, while less adventurous visitors can swim in the cool blue rivers. 

Practical Info

The waterfalls of El Chiflon are located about 30 kilometers outside of Comitan de Dominguez and two hours away from Cristobal de las Casas. Both cabs and public buses are available. There are entrances on either side of the river. The falls open at 8 a.m. and camping and grilling facilities are available.
