Road block. Loads of people with demands. When they put down the rope for a “colectivo” coming from the opposite direction we crossed slowly waving and smiling. Some said “párate, párate”, but not all, so we decided to continue slowly. We had 50 pesos ready to hand out, but their hesitation to stop us made us continue waving and smiling. No problems.
We don't have any photos of this place yet.

2 ropes today from Palenque to Agua Azul, just women selling fruits. They lower the rope if you don't buy anything.Report Check-In
No roadblock today 6/13/23 at 1:30 pm. 20 minutes before, we ran into some kids holding a rope, selling fruits, so we bought bananas for 20 pesos, he proceeded to ask for 10 more pesos and we said no. But other than, all good on the road thus far! Lots of topes 😅Report Check-In

Passed without any problem on motorcycle from Palenque to San Cristobal between 9am and 2pm. Only about 50km after Palenke there were 2 women and boy with a rope. Wanted 20mex i gave 10mex.Report Check-In
Kids trying to ropeblock several times on this route until cascada azul. We just drove towards them, honk twice and they let the rope down. Not nice but the fastest way to get through them.Report Check-In
kids selling fruits and plantain chips, so dangerous to put he kids to do this, they pull the rope as soon as they see you, say "no gracias, lo que haces está mal"Report Check-In
Kids with a rope again. I tried to drive around and one kid just kept standing in front of the car. They are persistent but we eventually drove around them.Report Check-In

No road blocks at any point on the 199. Asked in Palenque about them before leaving and they said they are not happening anymore due to the change of power at the last election. To be continued...
Yes the road has lots of topes but it is one of the most beautiful views you’ll get in Chiapas! I greatly recommend this road and not going all around like buses do. Enjoy!Report Check-In
No road. block, poor area, many tour bus, road is bumpy and not always the best, scenery is nothing specialReport Check-In
We left San Cristobal at 5:30am. No road blocks, no kids with ropes, just topes and an amazing view. We arrived at Cascadas de Agua Azul at 10am, enjoyed until 3pm and then left to Palenque. We finally saw some kids with ropes but not a big deal. We think that driving early in the morning would be better to avoid this situations.Report Check-In
Nothing here at the moment - ask the locals in Palenque/San Cristobal and they'll be able to tell you if there are any road blocks or not ahead :)Report Check-In
