Travel Blogs from Palenque

Ruins and waterfalls

A travel blog entry by jennyroberts


The town of Palenque is small and well set up for the traveller, just a short drive from Mayan ruins of the same name and local waterfalls, all of which made good viewing. The journey into Mexico passed through small villages, which whilst similar to the one where I lived in Nicaraga, had a new Guatemalan or Mexican flavour. I took a shuttle first and though the journey started off smoothly, two hours were then spent bumping along in our squeaky van along ...

Oaxaca to Palenque

A travel blog entry by waynenwendy


... had no metal tools, pack animals or wheels.
We visited two spectacular waterfalls in the Palenque area. First one was Misol-Ha with a 35 metre cascade that reminded us a lot of Springbrook National Park in Queensland.
The 2nd stop was at the thundering Agua Azul waterfalls. The rushing of the water is hard to describe and It was just breathtaking to see so much dazzling white water surrounded by dense jungle. It's ...

... the standard bus as it said on the webiste you get refreshments, power sockets, personal audio for the tv and extra leg room. For the 120 pesos extra about £6 didn't seem alot for the additional extras we were going to get. But upon getting on the bus there was very little difference to the standard one we had got from Mexico City to palenque. So in future we will save our money as that would have bought us 4 beers ...

Day 12: Independence Day Celebrations

A travel blog entry by holliem


I woke up late today. Around 9. I decided to snooze for a bit as I wasn't really sure what today would bring and I think the loneliness and isolated feelings from last night were making it harder for me to sleep last night, and definitely making it harder for me to get motivated this morning. I got up around 10. I had missed breakfast so decided to head into town again. I had been tossing and turning about buying Karen a saddle, but decided I could get her a saddle ...

Day 68 - Palenque ruins

A travel blog entry by jayandbob

This is a top pick!

... toucans, we think we heard some howling monkeys with all the weird noises that come from the jungle. We did see a big Iguana in a tree and lots of smaller birds, but none of the illusive Toucans. We also saw a few lime trees in the wild with heaps of limes ripe and ready to pick, and the usual amount of mozzies and insects biting us and sucking our blood. After we had gotten around all the ruins, taken a stroll in the jungle looking for Toucans and finished ...

    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.
