Agua Azul-Misol-ha-Zona Arqueologica Palenque
Visit Aguas Azules, one of MexicoÂ´s most beautiful natural attractions and Palenque, one of its most important archaeological sites in this full day excursion. First stop after an early start and breakfast en route are the Cascadas de Aguas Azules, a series of shallow pools and waterfalls formed by rimstone dams. The shimmering, limestone rich water, coloured crystalline blue cascades down a series of these natural dams and ends in the clear, waist-deep Shumulhá River. You will have plenty of to swim and paddle in the designated areas. Next stop are the impressive falls at Misol-Há, a 120-foot drop of cascading water in a tropical rainforest setting that should have been the backdrop for a Tarzan movie. The final stop is the impressive Mayan ruins of Palenque. Palenque, carpeted by a sea of green jungle and clothed in history and legend, is a stark reminder of how Mayan civilization flourished for hundreds of years in this lush tropical region. Although the area is still being excavated, there is plenty to see here, including the Temple of Inscriptions, the Temple of Skulls and the Royal Palace. There is an excellent museum and a museum store-refreshment area located within the park.
