Stopped at The Cataratas de Agua Azul (Spanish for "Blue-water Falls") 69 kilometers from Palenque by the road that leads towards San Cristóbal de las Casas.
Beautiful!

For touring info & insights I have primarily used 2 Books:
- Motorcycle Journeys Through Southern Mexico By Neal Davis. Purchased from Whitehorse press.
- Lonely Planet Mexico. This book is big. I tear out the relevant pages for the areas/towns I am exploring. This way I can have availability of the local map & info in my pocket.

I also use Trip Advisor & Google.

Got to Palenque. Stayed at the funky travelers hangout village of El Panchan near the entrance. Really cool place Right in the middle of a tropical forest/jungle. Lots of choices for accommodation & a great restaurant/bar hot spot with live music.
Lonely Plant book
Stayed at Margarita & Ed Cabanas. (Great reviews on Trip Advisor
Nice room.

Hired a guide which really made the tour interesting.
What a place, fascinating & amazing history. Imagine what these buildings & the village must have looked like back in that time. Especially with all the colourization.

Cool Museum here as well.


Walking back into the village spotted a procession of ants going back & forth on their self made trail quite a little distance carting things back to their nest

Cool2

Tulum, home of another Mayan Ruin is right on the south coast. The water is beautiful. It's the Caribbean. It is also a very popular tourist spot. There is a stetch of road along the coast, a few miles of endless resorts. I found a great Cabana for in a great resort for only ~$40/nt. It was also right next to a great outdoor restaurant with live music. Great evening!

The Ruins


Current local inhabitant.




Flew home from Cancun next day .
I was able to leave the bike at The Grand Mayan Resort near Playa Del Carmen. I had this prearranged as I had a reservation in 2 1/2 weeks time when I would return with Lily for a week to further celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary.

Finnish, Fly-ride 16.
Fantastico!!!
