Lacantours Viajes
They are formed by the Tulijá River, whose waters descend abruptly by narrow canyons and vertical cliffs forming beautiful falls of water and natural pools contained by calcareous dams called "gours" in the geological terminology.

Biosphere Nature Reserve

Declared a Biosphere Nature Reserve in 1980, they are formed by the tributaries Otulún, Shumuljá and Tulijá, creating a truly impressive natural spectacle, especially for its blue and white waters that contrast with the lush jungle landscape that surrounds them.
The intense turquoise color of the water is due to the calcareous bed of the river, creating one of the most wonderful landscapes in the world. They can be visited throughout the year, but the best time is dry (December to early July), since its characteristic blue color is only noticeable at this time of year.
When you travel to Agua Azul waterfalls, you prefer to wear light clothes and comfortable walking shoes. You can also wear shoes that you can wet, in case you want to do some activity in the rivers and waterfalls. Do not forget to bring insect repellent and sunscreen.
