Today we fly from our homes to Mexico City. Upon arrival, we will transfer to our wonderful deluxe hotel in Mexico City.
This morning we will fly to Villahermosa we will gather our luggage and begin touring. Our Villahermosa tour includes a visit to an outdoor museum with Olmec (possibly Jaredite) artifacts that date back to 1000 B.C.E. then head inland to the ancient ruins of Palenque. This is a very special place not only because of its mountain location but for its sheer beauty and peaceful feel. This is one of the cities mentioned by Joseph Smith in a Times and Seasons article.
After breakfast, the group will enter the ruins at Palenque. Although smaller than the ruins of Tikal, these ruins are our favorite because of their breathtaking beauty. We will use this backdrop to share the Book of Mormon insights and stories. The ruins date back to the Classical Period. At the conclusion of the day, you will return to our beautiful jungle resort where you can swim in several different pools.
Unfortunately even great things have to come to an end sometime. Today is the day you fly home.
