History


Description

Agua Azul is a series of shallow pools and waterfalls formed by rimstone dams. The limestone rich water cascades down a series of rimstone dams which end in the clear, waist-deep Shumulhá River. During the dry season, in April or May, the water is shimmering blue because of the high amount of soluted limestone. During the rainy season there is more water but it is not blue.
