Huatulco

A short flight from Mexico City, scenic Huatulco features nine picture-perfect bays on the Pacific coast.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Huatulco: Garden of Elia Martinez (in Pluma Hidalgo) and Mazunte (Laguna Ventanilla, Punta Cometa, &more). There's lots more to do: kick back and relax at Playa La Entrega, discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, explore the activities along Playa San Augustin, and see what you can catch with a fishing tour.

Plan my Huatulco trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major aiport is Bahías de Huatulco International Airport. In December, plan for daily highs up to 36°C, and evening lows to 25°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 10th (Tue) to allow time to travel to Palenque.

Palenque

Palenque remains best known for the nearby ruins of an ancient Mayan city, which probably flourished around the 7th century CE.
Palenque is known for nature, historic sites, and parks. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: delve into the distant past at Zona Arqueologica de Palenque, admire the sheer force of Agua Azul Waterfalls, make a trip to Iglesia Santo Domingo, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Aluxes.

For where to stay, ratings, photos, and tourist information, refer to the Palenque visit planning site.

You can do a combination of flight and bus from Huatulco to Palenque in 9.5 hours. Other options are to drive; or take a bus. Finish your sightseeing early on the 13th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
