Convent of the Nuns and the Sacred Cenote. Lunch in restaurant.

Afterwards the tour continues to Campeche which is the capital of the state with the same name. Check-in at the Plaza Campeche hotel or similar. The afternoon schedule includes a short visit to the ancient town, surrounded by fort walls and towers built to protect this city from the pirates. Campeche has a Colonial mood thanks to its gorgeous houses and austere churches.

Day 4
Campeche, Palenque

Departure to Palenque and check-in at the Ciudad Real or similar accommodation. Lunch break, and in the afternoon the tour continues with the visit to Palenque’s archaeological site. The area displays beautiful Mayan work made of stone and stucco; this area is frequently recognized as one of Mexico’s most beautiful places; its ruins are inside the Chiapanecan (from the State of Chiapas) jungle. Its most important temple is called Templo de las Inscripciones (Temple of the Inscriptions), where explorers discovered Pakal’s tomb with his famous jade mask.

Day 5
Palenque, Chicanna

Morning departure to Chicanná which is located in the amazing area of the Bec River, which got its name from the particular Mayan architecture style and where visitors can see recently discovered archaeological sites. Arrival and check-in at the Eco Village Chicanná Hotel, surrounded by an amazing Mayan jungle and in front of Chicanná archaeological site; its name means “House of the Serpent’s Mouth”. This site was only discovered in 1967 and stands out thanks to its doors marked with animal shaped masks; the Structure II is quite special due to its huge zoomorphic mask that probably represents Itzamná, God of the Sun. Return to the Eco Resort. Visitors have the rest of the afternoon free to relax at their hotel while they listen to the cricket’s canto and other bird sounds from the jungle, which is a great way to refresh both body and spirit in a matter of minutes.

After a one-hour trip on the main highway, visitors will arrive at the drift that crosses the reserve of the country’s largest biosphere:

over 230 birds species and a great variety of flora. It is possible to see an incredible diversity of flora and fauna while traveling along this route. After one and a half-hour on a narrow road, the tour will arrive at the Calakmul archaeological site, considered one of the most important ones; it is located approximately 25 kilometers from the border with Guatemala. Hundreds of stelas (monoliths) surround this region which clearly shows its Mayan domain. At the top of one of its largest monuments, visitors can admire the “green sea” of the huge Mayan biosphere. The visit finishes with a break for packed lunch. After that return to the main road and before arriving at Chicanná, the tour will take a 15-minute drift to visit the magical archaeological site of Balamkú, where there is a huge stucco relief with people from the Mayan royalty and jaguars.
