After a long day of driving and a wonderful viewing of Palenque under sunny skies with few tourist's other than us we arrived at Margarita and Ed's Cabana's.
We saw the sign on our way in so knew where we wanted to come back to upon our completion of the Ruin's of Palenque. So we turn to the right into the road in search of the Cabana Office. The road get's a bit skinny as the jungle encroaches upon it and one has an option to go right into a parking lot or left over a small bridge, a very small bridge. I opted to go right, wrong, this takes me to the restaurant area not the Cabanas so we wheel around and go over the bridge heading into the jungle a bit more. As we putt along with follow the sign's to Margarita and Ed's Office. We stop in and enquire on a room for us. We need 2 bed's, a shower, mossie screens and clean. Well Margarita has just the thing and takes us for a tour to see our room. The room is perfect for us and the price is fantastic, there is wifi in the restaurant and shopping area for us to use as well as live music with dinner at the restaurant. We back the car into a small slot just infront of our walk way, unload, shower up and head out for dinner.
Our rooms were very simple. A double bed with 2 pillows, A single bed with 1 pillow, a large shower, toilet and small sink area with a mirror, a desk, shelf and fan. 2 largish windows and a door. The room was very clean and my bed was very comfortable, my bud was not as happy with her bed it was a bit hard, but also she had asked for an extra pillow and there was something funny which transpired and she ended up with no pillow. So funny. I would say this room is above a hostel but I am really not sure if it is above a 1 star considering a Sandman is a 2 star, I would definitely stay here again if I was to return to Palenque.
Off we go to dinner, I stop at the first little area to look around and check the place out, the birds in the trees sounded amazing, the sun was still up, there was a nice sized tour desk which was manned by someone at all times, 2 little bars and some shopping places prior to the trail which leads to the restaurant. I stopped for a beer while waiting for my bud to go through her pillow episode, it was icy cold and well appreciated. This area after dinner seem's to end up being the pub like atmosphere of the place which is used by 3 different properties. Anyway here she comes and off we go to the restaurant, the walk to the restaurant is very nice and as we come upon the restaurant I think "Wow, this is unexpected and very nicely designed" We were told to sit wherever and we choose a seat with a plug in as my bud needed to check here email's and do a bit of work, we ordered some beverages and a few appies from a very nice menu with lot's of options. Our meals came and the place was filling up, my meal was very tasty and the service was great, her meal was good and service was great. She had to purchase 1/2 hour intervals for her internet in order to use the wifi, standard everywhere. I headed back to the room as the drive through the mountains in the rain had me a bit tired. When she arrived back to the room, she mentioned there had been live music just after my departure and it was quite good, shoot, as there is nothing better than live music.
Our check out was easy as pie and the morning coffee was the best I had during our entire CircleTour. I asked for a latte with an extra shot, perfect for the morning drive towards Tonina.
