The things you see and do are great. The minivan is much to small voor tall persons like me. The driver has no other option than to race over the curvy and bumpy mountainroads to livecto his timeschedule To be honest i didnt have no other option... At 4 am you are in front of your hotel at 10.30 you are back totallly shaked up cus of the many bumps and curves in the roads. The best place to do this tour from is Palengue an not San Crostobel de las Casas. De driver was nice (Jesus) The sites are worth visiting and Chiapaa is beautifull.
if you have a chance to travel to Palenque area, rather do it instead of doing the one day trip. if you dont have it, this is I guess the cheapest version you can do from San Christobal. the minivan is really small, the roads are bad...but for us the waterfalls + palenque was worth. it is only about where are the limits of your comfort and how many time do you have for travels.
Palenque is really great, just be prepared that there is limited possibility to buy food and what is available is overexpensed. Aqua Azul is also nice, but not sure about swimming, I want do that, water is a but dirty. The other cascade is nice, but would have prefered to skip it, the trip is already so long.
The 5 hour ride from San Cristobal is rough. The roads can be a little rough at times. So if you're trying to sleep in the van, forget about it. It was worth it though! Great trip, great sights, great tour guides.
It was a nice tour with a spanish speaking driver who was really pleasant. The only thing is that the tour is way cheaper when you buy it in San Cristobal comparing to the internet price here.
