We drove to Frontera Corozol, several hours from Palenque. We stayed at Vallescondido on the way so we could arrive earlier. It's easy to arrange a boat - the price depends on the number in your group. My husband and I were the only ones...More

Perhaps my favorite Mayan Archaeological site. I feel in love with it back in 1991 when I first visited it and stayed overnight in a hammock at a Palapa by the river. That was a real experience. Today it’s still so remote which only attracts...More
