To take from Palencé to the road from the track in the direction of the waterfalls of Agua-Asul, you can, on the minibus (local call them «Combi») walking in Okosigo. Stop minibus is located near the ADO bus station and is indicated by me on the map. Slap constantly shout the word «Okosyngo», so they hear them for the mile. The driver must be said that you are traveling to Agua-Asul, he will stop where you need.

How to get yourself to Misol-Ha from Agua Azul
This is the way that we have done. I wrote above that from the waterfalls of Agua Azul to the track we got on a ride for 20 pesos. To the fork at Misol-Ha reached by shuttle bus Ocosingo-Palenque, caught on the track (it had to wait for about half an hour). The fare charged us 25 pesos, drove an hour.

It lasts from 9:00 to 16:30, from this time of 30-40 minutes diverted to Misol-Xa and 3 hours Agua Azul (s dip).
