Catemaco to Palenque - busses and safety

Hola travelers - I'm planning a 3 1/2 week trip from DF > Veracruz > Catemaco > Palenque and eventually ending up in San Cristobal (perhaps some other small towns along the way) Any suggestion on getting into Chiapas from Catemaco and then to Palenque. Also, I know there have lots of problems in Veracruz before the army took over. Is it reasonably safe for an experienced single traveler to do this route or would it be better to go through Oaxaca. Any advice or comments would be much appreciated .

From Catemaco, ADO bus to Minatitlán then onto Villhermosa or Tuxtla Gutierrez. There haven't been any reported problems in months. Be as careful as you would be in New Orleans or New York and you'll be fine.
