Know More about this tour

You will be picked up from your hotel in Villahermosa and be transferred to the archaeological Site of Palenque. The name Palenque comes from Spanish and means wood stake fence. It is a literal translation of the Chol word otuln which means fenced or fortified place. Located in the middle of lush vegetation, this is one of the most important ceremonial centers of the Mayan culture during the classic period. The city was named almost 200 years before the famous nearby Mayan ruins were discovered in the 18th century. Visit the famous temple of the inscriptions where the tomb of Pakal was found, the palace, and the foliated cross temple and, if there is enough time, there will be a visit to the museum.

Then, return to Villahermosa with a stop for a meal (at your own expense) before the tour ends at your hotel or the airport.
