We came to one road block first, truck halfway into road, they demanded nothing and told us we can pass but we have to move cones ourselves. 100 meters further up the road are lots of people blocking road. 3 militant men are sitting on a tribune and receive the 100pesos demanded of us. We are let through. Another 200 meters the road are blocked by people , politely asking for small donation, we gave 10-15 pesos. There were 50 cars parked along road and it felt intimidating but no problems occurred.

Three road blocks in this area now. First two with cones, asked me where I was going (Palenque) and let me through. After the cones they have a large truck blocking the road. Locals surrounded me at the truck and asked for 10p. I gave them the money with no questions and they told me to ride around the truck. If not on a motorcycle I think you’ll be out of luck.

Report Check-In

Road blocked by a big truck. Don't allow anyone to pass. We turned around. All the bus drivers and locals advice to turn around. Also a burned van blocking one dirección and rocks on the road. Drive slow before getting to this point from San Cristobal.

Asked for 50 pesos. Give them what they want if you want to avoid a mob. Fake police on site as well. Or just avoid this road altogether until this thing is resolved.

Report Check-In

Road block still there. We asked what the money is for, they cant explain. In the end we gave them the 50p.

Still here, still asking for 50p, we gave them 40p and said we haven’t more ...
