DAY 1: TONINA, AGUA AZUL AND MISOL HA WATERFALLS.

6 am: We leave San Cristóbal to travel to the ancient Mayan city of Tonina, which is tracing new horizons in the knowledge of Mayan culture due to recent discoveries in the site.

Then we will visit the Agua Azul waterfalls. Their turquoise blue water foams white in hundreds of cascades over flat rocks in the middle of the wild green jungle. You can take a refreshing dip in the colorful waters, eat something or just relax before we set out to the Misol Ha waterfall which rushes over a rock edge 35 meters high. The natural pool offers a second opportunity to have a refreshing dip before we end our day in Palenque.
