Full description
Get picked up early in the morning in San Cristobal de las Casas and begin your tour. Stop at a traditional Mexican restaurant and enjoy a delicious breakfast. After, head to a set of waterfalls named "Cascadas de Agua Azul," created by the currents of the Otulún, Shumuljá, and Tulijá rivers. See shallow canyons with vertical cliffs. Go for a swim and enjoy the different views that surround you. Continue to the Misol-Ha Waterfalls which are 30 meters high and surrounded by a tropical jungle, making this a beautiful and refreshing place. Then stop at the archaeological site of Palenque where a professional tour guide will accompany you in this historic site. Admire The Palace, The Temple of the Foliated Cross, The Temple of the Sun, and other famous sites in this Mayan city known for its architectural and sculptural heritage. After, reflect on your fun-filled day as you head back to San Cristobal de Las Casas to get dropped off.

We knew it would be a long drive, that’s given. However the tour order is all wrong. After seeing water falls in the morning, the tour ended up at a grossly overpriced and no-choice buffet at 1.30pm, then started our tour of palatine in the blistering 38 degrees (hottest time of the day), 90% humidity, with a full belly. A recipe to make people sick. Then back into the van (with poor aircon), clothes absolutely drenched from spending two hours in the hottest part of tropical sunshine, loaded up with more passengers and 6+ hours back to SC. Blek. They should have taken us to Palenque first thing in the morning, when it was cool, and safer, and then gone to waterfalls to cool off and refresh on the way back. That would have been a fun tour.
