On my last Palenque adventure with Allie & Arielle, we stayed at Jungle Palace casitas inside of El Panchan. I always stay here & love it. El Panchan is a community at the base of the Palenque national park. There are multiple choices of hostels, food & your services all based out of this spot. The community is inviting--even the resident howler teen, Panchito, wants to give you love. Every night at the delicious restaurant Don Mucho's, there's live music & a fire-throwing spectacle. It's my fave place & you should go!
