Day Trip to Agua Azul Waterfalls and Palenque from San Cristobal

18 reviews
Torn between visiting the Mexican rainforest or a Mayan archaeological site? Go for both. During this fun-filled, double-duty tour, you’ll head to Agua Azul and Misol-Ha—two stunning freshwater cascades, flanked by lush jungle—before arriving at Palenque. Then get a peek at well-preserved ancient ruins, like the Temple of the Sun, an iconic stepped pyramid. Transfer from San Cristobal is included.

This is actually a part of a jewelry shop. The Museum houses a very interesting display of replicas of jade objects found in Mexican archeological sites. There is a booklet that you can use to guide you through the display cases. Very informative as to the origins of each object and where the original is now housed, usually in museums outside of the country. Entry fee of 30 p.

It is an interesting museum with original pieces that show the use of jade in this Mesoamerican region, in the end it is the store with Jade products, they are not cheap given that Jade is a Jewel. but there are pieces that are accessible and they are also certified with authenticity.

After you buy your ticket to enter the Jade Museum one of the employees gives you a quick introduction about the museum and the process on how they get the jade. After the introduction you see the museum on your own. They have information on the Aztecs, Olmecs, Toltecs, Mayas. Do not forget to look at the very interesting information on the Maya king Kinish Janaab Pakal. Also pay attention to the sign because there is one room where photography is not allowed. It is not a large museum so you will be out quickly to continue visiting other places in San Cristobal de las Casas.

A lot of information of the Jade found in south Mexico and central America. It is a small place but very nicely kept. Beautiful jade jewelry shop.
