    I am an enterprising woman that I like to travel, that I like to have friends of the world, my family is integrated by 3 sons and my husband, we have a property of 1.5 hectares which is located between the city of Palenque and the Ruins, is a property with many trees in which you see continuously passing macaws of the park Aluxes and you hear the howl of the Sarahuatos Monkeys living in the trees of adjacent properties, currently I am in the process of building cabins and a camping area that shows the viability of sustainability and conservation of the environment, I also have a property in which I work with cattle, the biggest attraction of my property because it has to do with the impressive beauty of the ruins as well as the places of immense beauty near Palenque, such as Bonampak, Yaschilam, Cascades Roberto Barrios and the waterfalls of Agua Azul, among others.
