Jul 13th 2011 5:23PM A lot of people go to the Yucatan or Belize to explore the Mayan world, Chiapas in southern Mexico is also a great place to the Mayan worlds of the past and the present. Rentals in San Cristobal de las Casas are quite affordable for vacationing families http://realestate.casassancristobal.com/rental-homes/
Apr 16th 2011 6:28PM Sorry, only meant to say it once.
Apr 16th 2011 6:27PM Exactly! Not Chiapas, not Yucatan, it's like saying crime in Arizona makes Maine unsafe, no correlation.

Apr 16th 2011 1:47PM You are very wrong in your comment. Southern Mexico is very safe and people from all over the world come here regularly without experiencing any problems. I live in Chiapas and am far safer here than southern California.
I blog about my life and travels at http://mayantrip.com after living for a year in Chiapas, the Mexican state where Palenque is, neither my self or any of my friends have had a negative experience.
You are helping to spread propaganda, not information. When you know someone who has had a bad experience in Chiapas or at Palenque it would be helpful to know about, otherwise please keep your uninformed nonsense to yourself.
Apr 16th 2011 1:36PM Before all of the people who seem determined to keep any positive comments about Mexico start their raving, I would like to say that much of Mexico is as safe and fun as it ever was. Chiapas and the Yucatan are wonderful and my friends who live in Mazatlan also live a great non violence and fear filled life. There are a lot of problems in the north of Mexico, that does not mean all of Mexico has problems with violence.
Americans need to understand that Mexico is full of very different states with very different people and diverse cultures in all of them. Don't let ignorance and fear run your lives. You can see some of the very positive experiences I have been having here on my blog at http://mayantrip.com
