It was an incredible excursion. The 3 sites are magnificent and the guide's explanations on the Palenque site were very nice. On the other hand, it is very hot and humid (end of April) so take care 🥵 The driver picked us up in San Cristobal and kindly left us closest to our hotel in Palenque. I recommend !

Everything was very cool. The van we traveled in was in very good condition, it even had a TV. Our driver was Marcelino, very kind, intelligent, noble and polite. They only have to indicate that it does not include a guide inside the Palenque ruins, you must hire that service.

The views were absolutely stunning and amazing. I was looking for transportation to these two locations & that’s exactly what they provided, so don’t expect any type of guided tour. Everything was self-paced, which I liked.

Excellent Trip. Long day but broken up well with stops. Worth the bumpy travel time to see the beautiful waterfalls & Palenque Ruins. Such a beautiful part of Mexico. Had a fantastic trip.

A highly recommended tour. The places are as seen in the photo.
