Time of year
We were driven here as part of a day trip to Vinales and surroundings and had lunch nearby. I understand concept of the place is supposed to educate us about, but I really did not find it impressive or even necessarily worthwhile to be honest. Some huts at a mountain...
My partner and I enjoyed our visit to the Palenque, although found it could have been executed better (maybe a bit more material to read/see - just more information really!) The Oshun cocktails which were included in the ticket price, were absolutely lovely!
Only a short cave compared to the Cuevas de India. This was where the slaves hid. Good little show at the end, bit touristy, My guide used to work there so I got a bit extra. Buy some honey near the exit
Many people don't know or appreciate the significance of the slave trade or it's impact on the Americas. I didn't spend much time here but it's historical significance is very important.
Palenque where runaway slaves hid. Fascinating and disturbing insight into how we have treated one another.
