Help needed with travel plans!


I've scanned the forums, but looking for further opinions...

I will travel to Villahermosa with my wife in August. We'll meet my son there, and return home together. We'll have about 4-5 full days. (not counting days for flight in and out).

I want to see Palenque, and need to go to Balancan to visit friends. What else should we add in the time we have?

I'm thinking:

Day 1: See some of Villahermosa, take bus to Palenque in evening.

Day 2: Tour Palenque ruins

Day 3: Bus to Balancan for the day, return evening to Palenque.

Day 4: ?

Day 5: return to Villahermosa


Should we head another direction after Balancan?

Where to visit for day 4?

Too far to see the canyons near Tuxtla, or San Cristobol, or Isla del Carmen?

I know it will be rainy season, but changing dates not an option. I also know Balancan isn't the most popular "tourist" place, but also not an option to change that (but we could go there any of the 5 days) By the way -any hotels in Balancan? I cannot find any.

Thanks for any suggestions!
