... covering a huge area only 3% of Palenque has been excavated. The rest has been covered by jungle. It's the same situation in Chichen Itza, there's just no desire with the authorities to take it further. Probably because 2 million people visit the site each year and pay 15 quid a pop. They must have Abba's 'Money Money Money' on repeat in the head office. That afternoon we had an optional excursion to a set of waterfalls. They were up in ...
... and blankets waiting to be baptised. The men were in furry, white cloaks and cowboy hats while the women were in black, furry skirts with colourful shirts and cardigans. On each side of the temple, there were tables with thousands of votive candles in glasses devoted to Saints. The smell of insence was in the air mixing with the aroma of the pine tree needles scattered across the floor and the fresh flowers on the ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Ciudad Real Centro Historico San Cristobal de las Casas
Right on the Zocalo, not a better location in town. Nice old-fashioned hotel. Not as colonial as I was expecting. Perfect for arriving to town dropping off luggage and to head out and explore the town. What a town, who need sot stay at a hotel when the place has so much to offer.
