After freezing to death at our hostel in San Cristobal de las Casas, it was a welcome relief to check into the Yaxkin. Not far from the bus station and situated in a tropical jungle setting on a quiet street, the Yaxkin offers a welcome retreat from the busy town of Palenque.
The town is the typical hysterical bustling Mexican hub of activity. We arrived on Valentine's Day and the town was going wild, so, even if the "la vida loca" of a Mexican town if fun, it was good to be able to retreat to the lovely open-air bar at the Yaxkin for a Margarita. Only drawback was the dampness of the room, but hey this is the jungle. By the way, of all the Mayan ruins we saw, Palenque was our favourite. Beautiful grounds, waterfalls, good guides and top-notch museum.
