Description

Road block. Loads of people with demands. When they put down the rope for a “colectivo” coming from the opposite direction we crossed slowly waving and smiling. Some said “párate, párate”, but not all, so we decided to continue slowly. We had 50 pesos ready to hand out, but their hesitation to stop us made us continue waving and smiling. No problems.

Kids trying to ropeblock several times on this route until cascada azul. We just drove towards them, honk twice and they let the rope down. Not nice but the fastest way to get through them.

No road blocks at any point on the 199. Asked in Palenque about them before leaving and they said they are not happening anymore due to the change of power at the last election. To be continued...

Yes the road has lots of topes but it is one of the most beautiful views you’ll get in Chiapas! I greatly recommend this road and not going all around like buses do. Enjoy!

No road. block, poor area, many tour bus, road is bumpy and not always the best, scenery is nothing special

Report Check-In

We left San Cristobal at 5:30am. No road blocks, no kids with ropes, just topes and an amazing view. We arrived at Cascadas de Agua Azul at 10am, enjoyed until 3pm and then left to Palenque. We finally saw some kids with ropes but not a big deal. We think that driving early in the morning would be better to avoid this situations.

Nothing here at the moment - ask the locals in Palenque/San Cristobal and they'll be able to tell you if there are any road blocks or not ahead :)
