Mexico City was a great start to the Central America trail. The group visited numerous sights including the free public zoo in the beautiful Parque Chapultepec, the world famous Anthropology Museum and even supported one of the Mexican wrestling matches! A definite highlight would be sampling some of the Mexican delicacies, drinking some beers and listening to a fully ensembled Mariachi band whilst travelling downstream on a handpainted, wooden boat at the Floating Gardens of Xochimilco. After a pretty eventful coach journey over night to San Cristobal, we had a great night out dancing salsa with the locals. San Cristobal is such a lovely little town with many side streets lined with coffee shops and great markets. Our next stop was Palenque and there we checked into some cabins in the jungle. After the hustle and bustle of Mexico City and San Cristobal, it was nice to be so remote and wake up to the sounds of birds and howler monkies in the surrounding trees. Whilst there we visited some Mayan ruins and on our last day in Mexico swam in the truly picturesque Agua Azul waterfalls. There we found a quiet, secluded spot and relaxed in the gorgeous turquoise water before heading back to our cabins to prepare for our early start to Guatemala.
Mexico has been great, and I'm looking forward to what the rest of the trail has in store!
