One of the most famous tourist attractions of Chiapas has almost completely disappeared as the flow of the river has decreased unexpectedly. Residents living around Cascadas de Agua Azul and from tourists visiting the area, woke up in distress as they noted that the waterfall had almost completely disappeared on November 10, 2017. The baffled inhabitants directly alerted authorities about the unusual phenomenon. Officials are investigating but have found nothing yet. Baffling is the fact that Chiapas is coming out from an intense wet season and that it has rained last week as well. So no drought, no needs of irrigation of agriculture. So what’s the heck?

Did a crack or a sinkhole empty the river AGAIN in Mexico?

  1. Hi! The.information.depicted here seems to be incomplete, the flow if the river (according with authorities) was detoured after the earthquake that affect this area in Sept 07, and the local people decide to take action and solve the problem by themselves, without any authorities permission. Besides that, too many garbage was im.the river affecting the river as well; so the rivrr and the waterfalls hve been recovered

    I greet you in the love and light of the Infinite Creator.
    Victory of The Light!
