It's 6:30am, I'm not hearing no rooster this morning, instead I'm hearing the sounds of exotic birds, well exotic for me, perhaps an annoyance to them. First thing I think of is a Toucan Was thinking I'd be hearing monkeys too, but no such luck. Those songs lasted for almost 30 minutes, very enchanting.

Throughout the morning I had been …

Welcome to Palenque

It was around two when we arrived at the bus station, or rather a bus shack as it is in so many cases. I crossed the small shack to grab the first taxi to the hotel, little did I know that the hotel was only 10 minutes walk away.

An early start the next day saw us at the entrance to the ruins nice and early, only to find out that the site was shut until noon as the Mexican …

Great ruins & incredible waterfalls

    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.
