... stunning! In the jungle so really green and pretty, Chiapas in general I think is my favourite place so far, secondary is amazing, so green and lush, but soooo hot! Had a coconut. Dropped off a bus station around 4.30, 6.5 hours to kill before bus to Merida. Lugged backpacks to restaurant then few of us went to a bar near station - bug regret- got so bitten! Saw ugly thing that looked like massive rat. May be a possum? Got night bus, so so ...

I took a shuttle first and though the journey started off smoothly, two hours were then spent bumping along in our squeaky van along ...
... is no one symbol on the sites that help distinguish Mayan from Aztec, so you just have to know before you arrive what you are looking at. There is not a whole lot in the town of Palenque. It was a bit strange because I did not even see a cathedral there, which is in just about every small town in Mexico. I do not think tourist stray too far from the bus station. There are a few restaurants, bars and shops, but not much else. You can get a very ...
