The Archaeological Site of Palenque is outstanding. It’s hot and humid, so go early and use mosquito repellent. We doused and sprayed 3 times and had no problems with bugs even though it was rainy each night and misty each morning. Carry water, you will...More

The ruins at Palenque are a must see for the adventurous traveler. These are among the best ruins in Mexico to visit. Not overrun with visitors, plenty of space to wander, and neither the tour guides nor the vendors are aggressive. My husband and I...More

I have been to other ruins in Mexico, Chicha Nitza and Tulum to name two, and this is by far my favourite so far. The jungle is lush, there are lots of trees to get some shade, and the ruins are extraordinary. We took a...More

Despite the fact that we arrived almost to the closing time, our tour guide was kind enough to show us everything. We left with the sensation of seeing all. You’re able to hear the sarahuatos or howling monkeys during your tour. The weather is hot...More

This is an amazing place, full of energy. You can still climb most of the pyramids and the views are worth the effort. The local kids offering as guides are limited in knowledge, but for 20 USD they will guide you and give you interesting...More
