A nice place if you have some time visit it. We really enjoyed the butterfly house but unfortunately the waterfalls didn't have enough water to be (We visited at the very end of the dry periode so it was a kind of obvious).
Fun place during a day in panajachel. They have a butterfly dome, and on your hike you will for sure see monkeys and other wildlife. Fun wooden bridges!
