I'm planning a trip that will require driving from Campeche to Palenque. A few years ago I read a lot of information that made it seem like it was a bad idea to travel this route due to political protests and roadblocks. I'm wondering if this is still a problem? I realize that the protesters were not hurting anyone, but I also don't want an entire day (or worse) of carefully planned trip to go down the drain. The US State Dept does not have any alerts for the area.
Also, would it be better to take a bus or have a driver because of roadblocks, or does it not matter?
Any info would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance!
