Calling all nature lovers, this 14-hour day-trip takes you to the vast and verdant Metzabok Lagoon from Palenque. Surrounded by rainforest and home to 27 lagoons, the protected reserve boasts biodiverse flora and fauna and is shrouded in Mayan mythology. Take a canoe ride to caves and cenotes, see ancient Mayan cave paintings, and relish the convenience of hotel pickup and drop-off in Palenque.
Your full-day excursion begins with pickup from your Palenque hotel at 7am, when you’ll board an air-conditioned vehicle destined for the Metzabok Lagoon.
Following a 3-hour drive, you’ll arrive in the heart of the protected area, framed by the eastern mountains of Chiapas. Learn about the native flora and fauna, which includes jaguars, harpy eagles, and quetzals, and walk on trails that pass through evergreen forests and past 27 different lagoons.
Take a canoe ride through the wilderness and embark on a gentle hike to El Mirador cave, home to ancient Mayan shrines and cave paintings, before enjoying traditional Mexican food with locals.
Your tour concludes with hotel drop-off.
