See our selecton of sample itineraries which feature Quinta Chanabnal

Quinta Chanabal is a modern Mayan palace, and is just a ten minute drive from the ancient Mayan ruins of Palenque.

There are just seven suites in this lovingly restored quinta, all adhering to the owner's re-visioning of a modern Mayan residence. Terracotta stone floors, oxblood wood furniture, baroque beds and marble sinks add a certain Italian opulence to the already regal look.

The restaurant is housed in a large palapa-roofed dining room, serving traditional food from both the Tabasco and Chiapas regions. Also worth checking out is El Panchan, a hippy hangout with a good collection of cafes and cabanas on the way to Palenque. We recommend Don Mucho - their wood fired pizzas are divine.

There is also a large swimming pool with cascading waterfalls flowing into it, as well as spa and a traditional Temazcal steam bath.

Why We Love It

The 7th century Mayan ruins are just a ten minute drive from the hotel. If you're lucky, Raphael the owner of the hotel is also a historian and gives a fascinating insight into the history of the ruins.
