Begin your day with pickup at your Cancun hotel, after which you'll transfer to the airport for your flight to Chiapas. During the 1.75-hour flight, rest and prepare for your full day at Palenque or watch the scenery glide by out the plane windows.
Upon landing, board ground transportation for the transfer to the archaeological site, which takes about 20 minutes.
Embark on a 3-hour tour of the Palenque site, the capital of the Mayan world, believed to be founded around 100 B.C. Learn about the civilization that once inhabited this UNESCO World Heritage Site through visits to its Temple of Inscriptions (Templo de las Inscripciones) and The Palace Complex (El Palacio).
Stop for lunch or a snack on the way back to the airport (not included), then board your return flight to Cancun and get convenient drop-off at your hotel.
