Margarita & Ed Cabañas

Guesthouse in Palenque

With the most spotless digs in the jungle, Margarita has welcomed travelers to her exceptionally homey place for decades. Bright, clean and cheerful rooms have good mosquito netting, and the more rustic screened cabañas are well kept too, with reading lights and private bathrooms. There’s free drinking water, a book exchange, and a lovely newer building with super-spacious rooms.

Security is much better here than other places around El Panchán.
