Waterfalls and Nature

Palenque

Palenque is a city embedded in the jungle so you will find natural attractions everywhere. Put on your bathing suit and get ready to admire its waterfalls like those of Agua Azul, which are named for their beautiful and crystalline blue color, due to the minerals that are dissolved in the water and whose color can only be admired in the dry season (approximately from December to May).

The Cascadas de Misol Ha (Misol Ha Waterfalls) are also very close. Its fall of approximately 30 meters high (98 feet) forms a pool in which you can swim; but with great caution. They are surrounded by mahogany trees, chicozapotes and “palos de agua” (Dracaena fragrans also called water sticks); they have cabins so you can stay the night in the company of the sounds of the jungle.

Make a space in your itinerary to visit the Ecoparque Aluxes (Aluxes Ecopark) where in addition to practicing outdoor activities you can see the animal species that are preserved. If you want to sleep under the stars at a camp, you can do it at the Centro Turístico Bajlum Pakal (Bajlum Pakal Tourist Center), which has all the services for a comfortable and safe stay.
