TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Xibalba Palenque
Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. Found the staff to be more than friendly, to the point to saying 'hi' on my way out or in to the hotel. I would definitely come back to this hotel and I'm not the type to go back to a hotel I've been to before.

The temples were amazing, the monkeys made loud noises in the jungle which added to the feel of the place! Well worth it. We had the best dinner from a not to far away place which played live music and I bought a green stone necklace from a shop there for $100 ...
... we were told, the river was better for swimming and lazing around before heading back down the path to the van for the return drive back to El Panchán.
Friday nights at Don Mucho's meant a live band was playing, nothing spectacular but good enough to listen to while eating pizza and drinking beer. Either the band played for too long or David was drinking the Negra Modelo too quickly because the walk home wasn't too straight.
... at the village where some of the group were staying over for a trip tomorrow to Guatemala .The rest of us travelled back after we bought an ice block ( I had coconut ice whic had chunks of coconut in it , yum).Tne drive back was 3 hours and most everyone dozed listening to Spanish crooning pop songs some sounding like Sting and another like Santana which was great to hear. Arriving at the ADO bus station we had a 3.5 hour wait. So here we are me ...
