It was a beautiful haven to relax and enjoy the local scenery. The host welcomed us with a drink and some fruit. She was very happy to tell us about the area and the places you absolutely needed to visit. Also, she kindly offered us a ride to all the places where we wanted to go. In the morning we... More

The property is about 7km out of town so, unless you have a car it can feel remote. However, this is what we wanted. Karen, the host, will call a taxi for you. The property is ideally placed to visit the ruins and Karen gave us a lift there. We ate at the property and the food is good and... More

Wow... After reflecting on a month of backpacking throughout Mexico..I cannot fault a single thing about our stay at el Colombre. Not too mention It was hands down the best nights sleep we had. Disgusted to read about the rude comment below, it is the simplicity that makes it such a paradise.... And taxis do take you up the dirt... More

Everything about this place makes you feel like you are in an enchanted garden away from any stress. It was everything we hoped. Clean rooms, beautiful settings, amazing wildlife, wonderful service and food. I must repeat the food was fantastic- we had personal bespoke home cooking for breakfast and dinner. The apartments are simple but very comfortable and clean. When... More

Four beautifully furnished Mayan houses are spread in a lush garden with a big pool. They all have a hammock and a small terrace. If you ask in advance, you can have diner/lunch or breakfast there (yummy food made with local fresh ingredients) and the hosts will drive you to the bus station or where you need to go (Palenque...

We arrived late in the evening, but this was not a problem for the hostess to make us a delicious three-course diner. We had dessert together with another couple and the hostess and host, in a relaxed atmosphere. We had breakfast twice, which was the best of our entire stay in Mexico (which was 17 days). Especially the home-made bread... More

Well out of Palenque town, down a unpaved rural road (this part is completely walkable). Beautiful lush gardens. Palapas were clean as could be, considering the location and design. We arrived late in the afternoon but still wanted to make the ruins, so one of the owners kindly drove us out there! Dinner is worth having in- traditional home cooking... More

we stayed at this wonderful place for two nights. It is in the middle of nature and you just feel so close to it being there. no main road passing by - so no truck or car noises, no restaurants close - so no loud music. The owners were very friendly and helpful to us having a lot of good... More

My husband and I and our dog Bentley stayed at this amazing place for 3 nights. First of all, let me say that this is Mexico and El Colombre is off the main road about 1 km in the most beautiful, peaceful setting you could ask for! We rode our motorcycles and parked them for three days and walked to... More

First of all, El Colombre is inaccessible for people without a car. It is off, not on, the road to the ruins, and is about 1/2 mile down a rutted dirt road that the combis and collectivos do not travel. You can take a cab from Palenque but you cannot take one to the ruins, or back to Palenque for... More
