Enjoy a wonderful combo tour as you visit magical places filled with beauty. You'll see the turquoise waterfalls of Agua Azul and Misol-Há plus the incredible archaeological site of Palenque (Named by Unesco as World Heritage Site). The time spent at the archaeological site is approximately 2.30 hours, Misolha is 45 minutes and Agua Azul is 1.5 hours. Your tour includes transport and a professional guide.
Depart from your hotel in Tuxtla Gutiérrez and begin the scenic journey to the UNESCO World Heritage site of Palenque aboard an air-conditioned van. Once there, you'll enjoy the jungle scenery and have around 2.5 hours to explore the site along with your guide and learn all about its history and importance.The ruins of Palenque date back to 226 BC and most of the history of this civilization has been pieced together by historians, who have interpreted hieroglyphics inscribed on the monuments. Once done with your visit here, you'll head to Misol-Ha Waterfall, which is 115-foot-high (35-meter). See how it streams down a cliff and take in the views and sounds of the rushing waters (45 minutes at Misol-Ha). Your last stop is the Agua Azul Cascades, which are a series of waterfalls named for their turquoise water. Here, you'll relax and admire the tranquil scenery and have a chance to take a dip in the pools of water at the base of the waterfalls. You’ll also have the option to purchase refreshments and regional snacks (1.5 hours at Agua Azul). After your visit, relax on the trip back to your hotel.
