Feel the magic of ancient Mayan ruins in Palenque and explore the spectacular natural waterfalls of Agua Azul and Misol-Há on this tour of Chiapas' must-see landmarks from San Cristóbal de las Casas.
Agua Azul, Misol-Há & Palenque Tour
First thing in the morning on the day of your tour, you'll be picked up from your hotel in San Cristóbal de las Casas, setting off northeast towards the city of Ocosingo.
You'll then head north to the Agua Azul Waterfalls, an impressive series of cascades on the Xanil River whose water is a striking turquoise colour, earning its Spanish-language name. Here, you'll have the opportunity to bathe in the natural pools formed by the falls, and relax in the beautiful surroundings.
Continuing onwards on your route, you'll reach Misol-Há, a spectacular waterfall consisting of a 115-foot (35 metre) tall cascade in the midst of the lush tropical jungle. These mythical landscapes were the filming locations for Arnold Schwarzenegger's Predator.
Finally, you'll make your way to the highlight of your adventure: the Palenque Archaeological Site. Declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, the ruins of the ancient Mayan city date back to 226 BC and are home to some of the best known art and architecture created by the Mayas. You'll be truly enchanted by this fascinating site and the insight it provides into the ancient civilisation.
After a full day exploring Chiapas, you'll make the return journey to the centre of San Cristóbal de las Casas, arriving back around 9 pm.
