We booked a trip with this transport to make our trip from Palenque to Flores (Guatemala) easier instead of organising each stretch by ourselves ans ended up regretting it. The driver's attitude was simply rude, giving us bad attitude about the sits we chose and...More

The driver is not honest, and he forced us to pay extra money when we were already in the bus. Its a kind of scam that they do everytime. We book a tour with our hotel (400p) and we regret because competitors are cheaper than...More
