    When visiting Palenque ruins, don't forget to go to the museum dedicated to this site. Museum is located at the lower entrance which is a bit ''off the beaten path''. To get ther just follow the stream.
    In the museum you can see several objects found in Palenque and the history of this Mayan town is nicely presented.

    OF COURSE we had to get a pic together here....he he!

    Admission fee here was 15 pesos, that's about a buck fifty USD.

    A swimming pool, swimming hole (with water from the river), and a restaurant/bar was on site. Lots of picnic tables, too!

    Steep stairs, and wet rocks makes this a destination for the in shape and sure footed!

    About 72 km away from Villahermosa on the way to Palenque is a very small town called Agua Blanca. There is a small park up an uphill, winding road. The park contains this set of cascades.

    Aren't they beautiful?

    There were also trails that lead up to some caves. We stopped here after several hours in Palenque and it was getting close to dusk. So, being tired and not wanting to drive on the roads at night we didn't see the caves. But, we intend to return.

    The cheapest way to visit ruins is to take a van from Palenque. They have their station on 20 de noviembre street (across the street from Posada Pacha'n Ka'an), but may pick anywhere on the way. The service is very frequent.

    Favorite thing: I'd really advise you to go to the site as early as possible. The place get hot and humid very soon. It's much easyer to climb over those pyramids while you can still breath normaly.
    We were ther in late august and at 10 am it was already too much. We were only waiting to go back to hotel to take a refreshing shower.
