Comience temprano para pasar un día completo de visitas turísticas en las cascadas de Agua Azul y Misol-Ha y Palenque, un lugar declarado Patrimonio de la Humanidad por la UNESCO. Empápese del esplendor natural de una serie de cataratas y dése un chapuzón en piscinas de agua color turquesa debajo de los 35 metros de altura (115 pies) de Misol-Ha. A continuación, visite las restauradas ruinas arqueológicas de Palenque, una antigua ciudad-estado maya que se remonta al siglo VII. El viaje de ida y vuelta está disponible desde San Cristóbal de las Casas.
The sites exceeded our expectations. The food was good. However, the van was uncomfortable. The road was awful with hundreds of speed bumps that slowed progress to a crawl. The driver made no effort to modulate his language for the Spanish impaired. Fly to Palenque!
The tour has too much destinations. The Cascades are great, but if you want to take a swim you'll be in a hurry and everything will be too fast, since the trip to Palenque is almost 5h30 driving with curves and topes. When we arrived in Palenque the driver, that is the only person from the San Cristobal Agency present all day, told us that there would not be a guide in English for whom we payed an extra 20 on Viator even though we had asked repeatedly during the trip. So we got very angry and asked again firmly, and they gave us, after a bit of wait, a young local guy that didn't seemed an official guide but in the end worked well because was guiding only the two of us. You'll spend a long time on the van, and when you'll arrive in Palenque, that is absolutely amazing, you'll have only one hour to see all the ruins and do the guided tour, that is superficial and not exhaustive, since you'll have time only to see the first temple and the Palace. And more, when you'll arrive in Palenque you'll be asked for the Wlaking in the Selva for extra Pesos for all the group.
Finally, the tour is cheaper if booked in San Cristobal in one of the hundreds of agencies.
We paid an extra $10 each for an english speaking guide. We only had a spanish speaking guide with no english. This made following instructions difficult however we got by. The real dissapointment was at Palenque when we missed out on all information/history on the tour.
Amazing bumpy tour! Every single location was fun and beautiful! Warning: the ride is about 5 hrs each way, and there is alot of curves and bumps. 400+ of "topes" along the whole road. Also, make sure your group respects the length of time in each location. Have fun!!
purtroppo il tour non si è concluso bene, puntuale alla mattina siamo partiti ma a metà strada causa un blocco stradale per una protesta politica ci siamo fermati, l'autista è tornato indietro e noi che dovevamo raggiungere palenque ci siamo dovuti arrangiare con altri mezzi pagando il viaggio e le entrate ai siti che erano previsti e pagati agra azul, misol ha e palenque
ho chiesto il rimborso di quanto pagato e spero che mi sia accordato
