Tour description provided by Viator

Spend the day exploring the Lacandon Jungle on this rafting and trekking tour from Palenque. Enjoy the serenity of the Lacanjá River as you float along and admire this biologically diverse region. Then discover the intrigue of the jungle as you trek to an ancient archaeological site, a Mayan village and a rushing waterfall.
After pickup at your Palenque hotel in the morning, enjoy the roughly 1-hour ride to the Lacandon Jungle and the Lacanjá River. Enjoy a light breakfast at a local roadside restaurant before continuing on to the day’s destination.The real adventure begins when you reach the Lacanjá River, which flows through the tropical jungle. Spend the next 2.5 hours voyaging on your durable raft through calm to intermediate waters past shores covered in lush vegetation. Next, it’s time to hike through the Lacandon Jungle for approximately 2 hours. Listen the call of the monkeys and look for other native wildlife coyly hiding in the brush. Visit the archaeological site of the lost city of Lacanjá, an ancient city stranded in the middle of the jungle. Meet the people of Lacanjá Chansayab, a Mayan village. Swim and relax at the serene Moctuniha waterfall before enjoying a late lunch and the return trip to Palenque, where you’ll be dropped back at your hotel.
