Waved us through heading south towards Yaxchilán. No problems on this stretch of road from San Cristóbal to Palenque.

Report Check-In

Just waved through, no issues here today. Sidenote - the 40km or so just before this is some of the WORST road we've seen - giant potholes, trees down on the road, and no markings warning of these hazards. Take care!

Report Check-In

No sign of anyone wanting to charge money, just a normal military check point, waved through without stopping.

Report Check-In

There were some local guys blocking the road with logs asking money for "cooperation" between Maravilla and turn off to Flor de Cafe. They wanted 50 pesos and gave us piece of stamped paper. At all the military check points between Palenque and Lagunas Montebello we were waived through. There were also more random and temporary military and police check points on this road, mostly around villages.
