Puncutual pickup infront of the hotel. The driver was excelent and quickly and safely drive us to the waterfall Miso-hal and Agua Azul cascades. There was enough time to take pictures and lunch. There were a lot of restaurants at Agua Azul spot. Unfortunately we could not bath at Agua Azul cascades as the water was not Azul but Chocolate. It was heavily raining the night before. Check the weather before going on the trip not to be surprised from the water color.

Not a guided tour, but the driver took us first to Misol Ha (max 30 min drive from Palenque) where we spent arroun 45 mins and then to Agua Azul where we spent arroun 2hours. Probably you will get better price if you just ask by yourself at some travel agency or at hotel. The driver picked up us at our hotel and droped off at the same place. He doesnt speak english, but luckily there were a lot of guys who understood him.

Tight turn. Departure at 3:30 am! We made the choice not to go back to San Cristobal and sleep in Palenque! The luggage follows. Top 12 pm meal, varied local buffet. You have to add an extension of 125 pesos to the palenque guide if you want to take a tour of the jungle and a pity that we didn't have time to go to the museum (included in the site ticket)!

Amazing waterfalls within the jungle

We were the only participants and for this reason allone with our driver. The way to the waterfalls is across the jungle with beautiful views. :-)

We were picked up on time, had a friendly driver and had plenty of time at each location to take a closer look.
