The Geography and Wildlife of the Misol Há Waterfall

The Misol Há Waterfall can be found in the Chiapas State of Mexico in the centre of the country’s lush, tropical vegetation. The waterfall is made up of one cascade which drops an incredible 35 metres, the fall then crashes into a deep blue, circular pool which is a popular swimming spot for visitors. The pool boasts a clear, blue colour due to the high mineral content in the waters. Behind the beautiful waterfall is a cave which is approximately 20 metres long.

The jungle of Misol Há is filled with a beautiful variety of wild animals and tropical birds. The trees move under the swinging weight of the monkeys, as well as the many colourful bird species. There are also a number of small mammals which can be seen along the pathways. In the neighbouring regions you might be able to spot crocodiles, howler monkeys and small wild cats.
