We, two, are going to Palenque in Jan 2007.
one flying from usa. one flying from Hong kong.
merida or cancun will be the landing/ entry point to mexico.
i wonder which way is the best to visit Palenque.
we do not have much time: Jan 12-21 for staying in mexico.
Not want to wasting time on transport.
You would think that flying to the Cancun airport might be cheaper as there are more tourists flying to Cancun than Merida.
However, Merida is 4 hours closer (by car or bus) to Palenque. Up to you I guess. All things being equal, fly to Merida.
MERIDA IS A BIT MORE NEARER TO PALENQUE THAN CANCUN IS. BUT BE WARNED, YOU COULD FIND YOURSELF BEING ON A LONG JOURNEY TO DOWN THERE AND COULD TAKE HALF A DAY.
